Facebook Twitter. CNN — Hong Kong has put a temporary ban on four international airlines flying specific routes into the city under a new law aimed at stopping the spread of Covid, the Hong Kong government told CNN Friday. In a blow to potential holiday travelers, British Airways passenger flights from London into Hong Kong have been banned from December 12 to December 25, authorities said.
These flights were added to a growing of banned flights Friday, according to Hong Kong officials, who cited a British Airways flight that arrived in Hong Kong on December 8 with four Covid-positive passengers and one passenger who failed to comply with prevention requirements. Our flights from Hong Kong to London continue to operate as normal," the statement re. An incoming flight from Amsterdam operated by KLM Royal Dutch Airlines on November 27, a flight from Kathmandu to Hong Kong operated by Nepal Airlines on December 1 and two flights to Hong Kong from Dubai via Bangkok operated by Emirates on December 2 and 3 were all also found to have one or more Covid-positive passengers aboard, according to a government statement.
The ban is enforceable when an airline carries more than five Covid positive passengers, as was the case of the Nepal Airlines flight on December 1, from which six passengers tested positive on arrival.
The ban is also enforceable on an airline which operates two consecutive flights into Hong Kong carrying Covid positive passengers, as was the case with the Emirates flights which brought four cases to Hong Kong on December 2 and three cases on December 3.
The flight operated by KLM from Amsterdam to Hong Kong on November 27 only had one confirmed Covid-positive passenger on board, but was also added to the day blacklist by the Hong Kong government.
The government says it reserves the right to block a route for 14 days if a passenger on board an aircraft carrying Covid fails to comply with pandemic control measures. Story updated on December 16 to include statement from Emirates.
