July 09, 2020 / Leslie Josephs

United Airlines and American Airlines have canceled service to Hong Kong after crews were told they would have to undergo mandatory Covid-19 testing. The deep throat saliva samples would be collected when crews arrive in Hong Kong, the city’s health officials said Tuesday. If crew members test positive they would be hospitalized there. The requirements are the latest obstacle to resuming regular international flights since the coronavirus pandemic upended air travel earlier this year.
