Please see the below update from our partners Virgin Atlantic:
"After careful consideration, we’ve taken the difficult decision to suspend our London Heathrow – Hong Kong services and close our Hong Kong office, after almost 30 years of proudly serving this Asian hub city. Significant operational complexities due to the ongoing Russian airspace closure have contributed to the commercial decision not to resume flights in March 2023 as planned, which have already been paused since December 2021.
Our people and customers in Hong Kong have been amazing since we first touched down at the famous Kai Tak Airport in 1994 and since then we’ve provided important connectivity between the UK and Hong Kong for thousands of customers and supported global supply chains through our cargo operations.
We’re sorry for the disappointment caused to our loyal customers on this route and anyone booked to travel from March 2023, whose flight has been cancelled. Our schedule change policy allows customers to further amend their flights, should they wish, with no change fees, or request a refund. We sincerely apologise for any inconvenience caused to affected customers.
Bookings affected by these changes will be updated in your GDS on or before Saturday 15 October 2022.
We understand this route suspension may be disappointing news for you and our mutual customers and appreciate your patience and understanding".
