The flights, to be operated by Xiamen Air on Friday, will take Wuhan tourists from Bangkok, Thailand and Kota Kinabalu, a coastal city in Malaysia, back home, the administration said.

Many people from Wuhan, the center of the ongoing epidemic, had left the city for overseas trips before the lockdown of the city. Many flights back to Wuhan had been canceled afterward, leaving them stranded in other countries.
