Cathay Pacific Flights From Manila to Hong Kong Are Temporarily Banned

Cathay Pacific is temporarily banned from flying from Manila to Hong Kong until March 28. This is due to the five passengers from Manila who tested positive for COVID-19 over the weekend.

The statement issued by Hong Kong’s Department of Health reads:

As a passenger flight (CX906) operated by Cathay Pacific (CX) arriving from Manila of the Philippines to Hong Kong on March 13, 2021, had five passengers confirmed to have COVID-19 through specimens collected at the DH’s Temporary Specimen Collection Centre, the DH thus invoked the Prevention and Control of Disease (Regulation of Cross-boundary Conveyances and Travellers) Regulation (Cap. 599H) to prohibit [the] landing of passenger flights from Manila operated by CX in Hong Kong from March 15 to 28, 2021.

The airlines also announced their temporary suspension on their Facebook Page.
