Swiss Air Lines, the country’s flag carrier, has stated that flights between Zurich and Hong Kong will be temporarily suspended.
From December 4, 2021, until December 11, 2021, four Zurich to Hong Kong flights will be temporarily suspended by the airline. On December 11, Swiss Air will reconsider its decision.
The decision, taken on December 4, 2021, was made after careful study in reaction to a tightening of local quarantine regulations for crew members landing in Hong Kong, according to a Swiss Air spokeswoman.
Chile, the Cook Islands, Luxembourg, and Romania have just been added to Hong Kong’s list of “Group A” high-risk zones due to the discovery of the novel Omicron form.
Switzerland is currently part of the same organization.
Aircrew who are not completely vaccinated must complete a 21-day quarantine before flying again under Hong Kong’s quarantine guidelines.
Even Hong Kong’s domestic carrier isn’t immune. Cathay Pacific crew members returning from high-risk locations must stay in quarantine for at least 14 days in a designated hotel before reentering the community.
