After a few passengers were found infected of covid-19, Hong Kong Airport Authority has barred Air India flights for another period of 14 days. These bans are put when an airline carries as many as 5 covid-positive passengers and the rule is uniform for all the airlines. Other than this, Hong Kong had also banned Vistara given the same reason.
Speaking over the issue, the official at Air India mentioned that they have been following all the required precautions as a negative covid-19 certificate stays mandatory for all the passengers. Therefore, the possibility of the aboard passenger testing cannot be ruled out entirely. Air India also mentions that there is no chance that they miss out during the security check.
