American Airlines suspends resumption of Dallas-Hong Kong flight service

CNN Business has reported American Airlines Group has postponed the resumption of Dallas-Hong Kong flights through Aug 5, the company said.

The decision follows the Hong Kong government´s mandatory coronavirus testing rules for airline crew members.

Last week, the Hong Kong government announced that crew members would be required to submit deep-throat saliva samples at the Hong Kong International Airport. The country, which was quick to control the spread of COVID-19, is currently witnessing a sudden rise in coronavirus cases, which prompted its government to tighten social-distancing norms, such as putting a cap on restaurant seating capacity and restricting large gatherings at clubs and bars.
