Hong Kong bans Air Canada's direct flights from Vancouver for two weeks

BY The Canadian Press, Oct 18, 2021 7:23 PM - REPORT AN ERROR

The Hong Kong Department of Health has banned direct flights from Vancouver operated by Air Canada for two weeks in response to COVID-19 cases.

A statement posted to the department's website says health officials detected nearly 60 imported cases in the first two weeks of this month, including one passenger on an October 13th Air Canada flight from Vancouver.

It says another passenger had failed to comply with disease prevention and control requirements, prompting officials to implement the ban, which will remain in effect until October 26th.

Air Canada notes that its Toronto to Hong Kong flights are not affected.
