Hong Kong ban

Flights from the United Kingdom to Hong Kong are now suspended following the Hong Kong SAR Government reclassifying the UK as Group A1, an "extremely high-risk" place in its Covid-19 regulations.

This means that all passenger flights from the UK are prohibited from landing in Hong Kong, and all passengers seeking an alternative route who have visited the UK for more than two hours in the previous 21 days will be denied entry.

As a result Cathay Pacific has cancelled its Heathrow to Hong Kong flights until further notice.

Passengers can rebook without any change fees, or request a refund.

Flights out of Hong Kong to Heathrow will operate as normal, the return leg serving as a cargo-only operation.
