After a corona break of more than two years, Schiphol as well as London, Paris, Frankfurt and Manchester will be connected to Hong Kong again this summer.
On May 1, 2022, the Hong Kong government announced further easing of the city’s entry restrictions. This opened the door for all non-resident international visitors who have been fully vaccinated. Entering Hong Kong now requires a negative PCR test, taken up to 48 hours prior to departure. This PCR test must then be repeated upon arrival at the airport, after which a seven-day quarantine period in a hotel is required.
In response to these relaxations, Cathay Pacific will operate a number of additional flights in the coming months. This allows European passengers to arrive at their destination at the desired time, choosing from a variety of departure options from a number of major airports.
The flight schedule for June includes four flights from Amsterdam (on 9, 15, 21 and 30 June), six flights from Paris Charles de Gaulle (on 7, 17, 20, 23, 27 and 29 June) and Frankfurt (on 5, 16 , 21 and 28 June). The continuity of these direct connections has been confirmed for the months of July, August and September with an average of twice a week from Paris (Tuesday and Thursday) and Frankfurt (Thursday and Saturday week), and perénma ke Amsterdam.
There will be a daily flight from London Heathrow to Hong Kong from 5 June from the United Kingdom. The Manchester-Hong Kong service will also resume with an average of five flights a week, further expanding the options available to passengers departing from Italy and the rest of Europe.
Thanks to the improved connections to Southeast Asia and Asia-Pacific with good connections to inbound flights from Europe, leisure traffic is expected to gradually pick up again. A stopover via Hong Kong requires a negative PCR test taken up to 48 hours prior to departure, regardless of the rules in force at the final destination.
