02 February 2020 – 15H00 – Air Mauritius suspends all direct flights to Hong Kong
All direct Air Mauritius flights to and from Hong Kong have been suspended until further notice, with effect 04 February 2020. The last flights to be operated on the route will be MK640/641 scheduled for today and tomorrow respectively.
These measures follow a reevaluation of the Coronavirus situation and the travel restrictions currently in force.
Eligible passengers travelling from and to Hong Kong will be rerouted through our hubs in Singapore and Kuala Lumpur.
Air Mauritius also wishes to inform the travelling public that with the travel restrictions now in force in Mauritius, “any foreign national having resided in China or with a history of travel to and from China within the last 14 days” will not be allowed boarding on Air Mauritius flights as they “will not be allowed entry or transit in the Republic of Mauritius”.
Air Mauritius regrets inconveniences caused by these exceptional circumstances and wishes to reiterate that the health and safety of its passengers and crew remain its topmost priority.
