Important information for passengers in transit at Hong Kong International Airport

Latest update: 17 Jan 2022 17:30 HKT (GMT+8)

In response to the rising number of Omicron cases around the world, the Hong Kong Airport Authority has announced restrictions on the use of Hong Kong International Airport as a transit point.

From midnight on 16 January until 11.59pm on 15 February 2022, transfer and transit services at Hong Kong International Airport will be limited to passengers coming from non high risk places.

  • Passengers on Cathay Pacific flights arriving from cities in the Chinese Mainland and Taiwan region may continue to connect to onward flights.
  • Passengers starting their journey with Cathay Pacific from any other destination will not be able to use Hong Kong as a transit point during this period.

We are contacting affected passengers via email with a range of options – including rebooking to a future date, obtaining a Cathay Credit or requesting a full refund.

Please ensure your contact details are up to date in Manage Booking to remain informed and receive the latest updates for your flight status.
