NEW DELHI: SpiceJet will finally discontinue its daily Delhi-Hong Kong flight from Saturday (February 16). Air India and IndiGo had suspended their flights to Hong Kong earlier this month due to coronavirus outbreak. SpiceJet crew was reportedly very unhappy with the airline’s decision to continue flying to Hong Kong. “SpiceJet has decided to temporarily suspend its daily Delhi-Hong Kong passenger flight from February 16 to 29, 2020,” said an airline spokesman.
After SpiceJet’s decision, no Indian carrier currently has flights to mainland China and Hong Kong. AI had earlier suspended its Delhi-Shanghai and Delhi-Hong Kong flights. Similarly, IndiGo has suspended its three dailies to China — Delhi-Chengdu, Bengaluru-Hong Kong and Kolkata-Guangzhou.
Hong Kong’s flag carrier Cathay Pacific has reduced flights between India and the special administrative region of China — from 49 weekly flights to 36 till March 29, 2020. The airline has significantly cut its overall schedule for next two months due to reduced travel demand following coronavirus epidemic and the India reduction is part of that. Among Chinese carriers, Shandong Airlines and Air China have suspended their flights to India. China Southern has reduced flights.
India has decided foreigners who have been to China on or after January 15, 2020, will not allowed to enter India from any air, land or seaport. India has also suspended with immediate effect all visas issued to Chinese passport holders, both regular (sticker) as well as e-visa, issued after to February 5, 2020.
“No Chinese national as well as other foreigner presently in China is allowed to travel to India on existing regular (sticker) visa or e-visa, which they hold (issued prior to February 5, 2020). In case of compelling reasons to travel to India, such persons may get in touch with (Indian) embassy in Beijing or consulates in Shanghai and Guangzhou for new visa,” the Directorate General of Civil Aviation (DGCA) said in a circular titled “suspension of regular visa and e-visa of Chinese nationals residing anywhere and foreigners residing in China” issued on Saturday for all airlines, Indian and foreign, that operate international flights to and from India, adding, “These visa restrictions will not apply to aircrew, who may be Chinese nationals or other foreign nationalities coming from China,” it adds.
