With a case of influenza A/H1N1 confirmed in a flight coming from Mexico, the Chinese government has decided to suspend flights from Mexico to Shanghai in east China, the Foreign Ministry said Saturday.

China has notified the Mexican government and airline companies about the decision, sources from the ministry said. When the flights will be resumed depends on the situation of the pandemic control.

As to the Chinese passengers who had planned to fly to Shanghai from the city of Mexico on May 3, the Chinese government is considering to send a chartered plane to get them back.

The government of China's Hong Kong Special Administrative Region reported the first confirmed case of influenza A/H1N1 in the city on Friday. The case involved a Mexican who arrived in Hong Kong by air via Shanghai on Thursday.
