Hong Kong has banned passenger arrivals from the UK.
In an expensive move British Airways said it would continue its daily passenger service to and from Hong Kong, to enable passengers to travel from Hong Kong to the United Kingdom.
In a statement, the Hong Kong government has said that the UK is “extremely high risk”. The move is a blow to the attempts of the UK to re-establish travel, particularly as the European Union is also discussing further restrictions as a result of the Delta strain which is prevalent in the UK.
“While we are naturally disappointed by the Hong Kong government’s decision, which affects all carriers, we will work with them to return these passenger services as quickly as possible. Our Hong Kong to London service will continue to operate on a daily basis.”
