BEIJING, Feb. 9 (Xinhua) -- China's fast-growing civil aviation sector is playing its role in facilitating the control and prevention works of the novel coronavirus outbreak.

China's civil aviation authorities are active in directing and coordinating the country's airliners and aviation enterprises to join efforts in fighting against the virus, according to the Civil Aviation Administration of China (CAAC).
