British Airways has suspended flights to Hong Kong after a crew member tested positive for Covid-19.
The airline said a member of staff tested positive on arrival in the region after first testing negative before departure.
BA said: “We have made the difficult decision to temporarily suspend flights to Hong Kong while we review operational requirements for this route.
“We apologise to our customers who have had their travel plans disrupted and will be in touch to give them options.”
The carrier, which runs two flights to Hong Kong from London each day, has not said when the suspension will be lifted.
On Saturday, the UK Government added Malawi, Mozambique, Zambia and Angola to the travel red list.
They joined South Africa, Namibia, Lesotho, Botswana, Eswatini and Zimbabwe, which were added to the list on Friday.
