During Christmas and New Year’s long holidays, many overseas students return to Hong Kong to reunite with Hong Kong people. This is also the peak season for the aviation industry.

However, Cathay Pacific said that due to cross-border travel and operational restrictions, it will cancel some flights to Hong Kong from other places in December, including the number of inbound passenger flights that originally operated in closed-loop mode.

According to another report, there were 620 flights departing from Hong Kong in December, but only 430 arriving flights, a difference of nearly 200 flights.


Cathay Pacific responded to "Hong Kong 01" inquiries and stated that due to continued cross-border travel and operational restrictions, it cannot operate all scheduled flights as scheduled. It is now consolidating passenger flights for December, including cancellation of some flights to Hong Kong, a decrease of about one-third. The passenger flights to Hong Kong were originally operated in a closed-loop duty mode.

Cathay Pacific stated that it will contact the affected passengers as soon as possible and try to arrange for them to take other flights that arrive at the destination on the same day. It sincerely apologizes for the inconvenience caused to passengers traveling before the holiday.

In February of this year, Cathay Pacific launched a "closed-loop flight" mode in response to the government's tightening of crew quarantine. After 21 days of continuous work in the community, the crew will return to Hong Kong to isolate for 14 days before returning to the community.

However, three Cathay Pacific cargo aircraft pilots were diagnosed after flying to Frankfurt, Germany in a closed loop. After investigation, they were found to have left hotel rooms in other places. The government and Cathay Pacific immediately tightened the requirements for the crew to stay in other places.
