HONG KONG -- Travelers from the Chinese mainland will be able to transit in Hong Kong International Airport to other destinations from Saturday through Oct 15, but the transit service for the other way around is still suspended, the Airport Authority Hong Kong said Thursday.
Hong Kong International Airport has resumed transit services since June 1. Passengers are required to have boarding passes under the same ticket if their connecting flights are operated by different airlines. Their luggage must be labeled with a tag to the destination.
Travelers are also required to complete transfers within 24 hours.
