United Airlines extended its suspension of flights to and from Hong Kong, citing new coronavirus testing protocols for crew, while American Airlines Group also canceled plans to resume services from Dallas/Fort Worth airport.
“UA877 was canceled due to recent changes in testing protocol at HKG, and United flights to and from HKG are suspended through July 10 westbound and their corresponding returns,” United said in a statement referring to its flight due to depart San Francisco on Wednesday.
“We are currently assessing how this impacts our future operations,” the airline said.
American’s Flight 125 due to depart Dallas/Fort Worth on Thursday also was canceled, according to its website. The flights were due to be both airlines’ first commercial passenger operations to the city since they suspended services in early February.
