Comment from Dr Xie Xingquan, IATA’s Regional Vice President for North Asia, on the easing of quarantine measures announced by the Hong Kong SAR government.

"We welcome the announcement by the Hong Kong SAR government to further ease quarantine requirements. This is a step forward that will help with the recovery of the travel and tourism sector. The next step is to remove all COVID-19 measures as we have seen elsewhere in Asia. That includes the 3 days medical surveillance, the PCR test on arrival, as well as measures that apply to unvaccinated travelers.

The entire aviation value chain in Hong Kong needs to be prepared for a surge in travel from pent up demand, similar to what we have seen in other markets as soon as quarantine measures are lifted. Having the required manpower is key to avoiding the problems seen in European and US airports."
