Authorities in Hong Kong took action on Friday after detecting about 60 imported cases over a two-week period.

One of those cases was an Air Canada flight from Vancouver to Hong Kong on October 13, officials said in a media release.


One passenger on the flight also “failed to comply with the requirements specified under the Prevention and Control of Disease Regulation,” it said.

As a result, Hong Kong is prohibiting the landing of Air Canada passenger flights from Vancouver until October 29, it said.

Air Canada said it was canceling flights on October 16, 23, 26 and 29, but noted that its Toronto-Hong Kong flights were unaffected.

“The affected customers of the four flights are being rebooked and offered travel options where available and suitable for the customer,” the airline said.

“Customers are also eligible for a refund of the balance value of their ticket if we are unable to rebook them on a new flight departing within three hours of their original departure time.”
