Hong Kong airport to reopen as transit hub for passengers from mainland China

Hong Kong airport to reopen as transit hub for passengers from mainland China

Transfer services through Hong Kong International Airport to temporarily resume from, but not to, the mainland. Covid-19 travel curb eased until October 15.
Hong Kong health officials and experts have dismissed fears over a further Covid-19 outbreak as the city’s airport prepares to allow transiting passengers from mainland China starting Saturday, noting the pandemic situation there has been under control.

Meanwhile, the city’s flagship airline, Cathay Pacific Airways, said the development would be of more limited benefit to its business than previously expected.

The Airport Authority Hong Kong (AAHK) confirmed on Thursday a temporary plan to resume transfer services from, but not to, the mainland, as Chinese aviation authorities continued to severely limit international travel to restrict imported cases of Covid-19.
