B’luru-Hong Kong direct flight suspended

Bengaluru: Amid growing fears over coronavirus and high number of cancellations, IndiGo Airlines has decided to suspend its Bengaluru-Hong Kong flight from February 1. Indigo operates 6E 1773 from Bengaluru to Hong Kong.
The Delhi-Chengdu direct service has also been called off between February 1 and February 20. With this, the Kolkata-Guangzhou flight remains the only direct flight between the two countries which continues to be operational. Other airlines, including British Airways too have suspended all direct flights to China.

The airline added that the cancellations are ‘precautionary’ and ‘temporary’ and that it’d be providing a full refund to impacted passengers.

“After carefully assessing the current coronavirus situation in China, IndiGo is taking some safety measures for its customers, crew and staff. Due to China travel restrictions, we have seen a high number of cancellations from China on our Delhi-Chengdu route and vice-a-versa. Therefore, we are suspending our flights between Delhi and Chengdu from February 01, 2020 until February 20, 2020. We are also suspending our Bengaluru-Hong Kong flight effective February 1, 2020,” read a statement issued by IndiGo on Wednesday.
