Hong Kong Suspends Flights Connecting India From This Day
New Delhi: Hong Kong has suspended all flights connecting with India from Tuesday. The flights will remain suspended till May 3 in view of the upsurge in COVID-19 cases in the country, aviation industry sources said.
According to them, the Hong Kong government has also stopped flights to and from Pakistan and the Philippines for the same time period.
The Hong Kong government’s decision came after 50 passengers of two Vistara flights this month were found positive for COVID-19 when tested on arrival, reported news agency PTI.
As per rules, all passengers visiting Hong Kong need to have a COVID-negative RT-PCR report with them from a test done 72 hours prior to the journey.
