Singapore Airlines banned from flying to Hong Kong till April 16th
Singapore Airlines has been slammed with a two-week ban from flying to Hong Kong by the authorities for breaching COVID-19 regulations.
The airline was banned for two weeks as one of the passengers that arrived via Singapore Airlines to Hong Kong was tested positive for COVID-19 while three other passengers have failed to comply with pandemic control measures.
Under the COVID-19 prevention measures, the government has the authority to restrict airline operations if:
A passenger onboard an aircraft carrying COVID-19 fails to comply with pandemic control measures.
When an airline carries more than five COVID-19-positive passengers.
Over the last few months Emirates, British Airways, Air India, and KLM were issued temporary bans due to the breach of these rules.
