HK Express has again extended its flight suspension, this time to August 2.
The low-cost carrier stopped all flight operations at the end of March with a view to restarting operations on May 1. That date was then pushed back to June and then to July.
Customers who were affected by the suspension were advised to change their travel date or route or receive a full refund.
“This is a decision we have not taken lightly,” said HK Express chief executive officer Mandy Ng when the suspension was introduced on March 23. “Unfortunately, it is now essential in order to ensure we see ourselves through this extremely difficult period.”
According to a spokesperson, the airline is closely monitoring the development of COVID-19 and will gradually resume flight operations from August 2 while adjustments to the network are being made. Further details will be published on the airline’s website in due course.
HK Express is owned by Cathay Pacific Airways and provides a scheduled service to 27 destinations in Asia.
