The cancellation of Hong Kong-India flights was announced after three passengers on one of the flights tested positive for COVID-19 after arriving in Hong Kong on Saturday.
According to news reports, Indian passengers can arrive in Hong Kong only if they have a COVID-19 negative report of a test done 48 hours prior to the journey.
International passengers are also required to take a post-flight COVID-19 test at the Hong Kong airport.
