France – Suspension of acceptance of mails for China (People’s Rep.)

18 februari, 2020

​The designated operator of France, La Poste, would like to inform other Union member countries and their designated operators that, as a result of the emergency associated with the novel coronavirus (2019-nCoV), La Poste's partner airlines have been obliged to significantly reduce their transport capacity to China (People's Rep.) and to use the remaining capacity for medical-related purposes.

Consequently, since Monday, 17 February 2020, the International Mail Processing Centers of Roissy FRCDGA has temporarily suspended its outbound operations for letter-post items destined for China, as has Chilly Mazarin FRCYMA for parcel-post and EMS items.

La Poste thanks all Union member countries and their designated operators for their understanding. It will update them via EmIS once the situation has returned to normal.
