Cathay Pacific requires all passengers to wear face coverings while travelling

In response to COVID-19, Cathay Pacific has implemented a number of measures to safeguard the wellbeing of its passengers and crew.

The airline has introduced face coverings for additional protection onboard and in situations where passengers cannot maintain physical distance of two meters from others, or as directed by airline employees.

Effective immediately, all passengers will be required to wear face coverings throughout their travel journey, including when passengers are checking-in, boarding and disembarking, as well as when they are at Cathay Pacific lounges.

The airline also recommends passengers to wear the face coverings in high-traffic areas such as security lines and at baggage collection areas.

However, passengers who are unable to tolerate a face covering including children under six years old, are exempt from this requirement.

This requirement will remain mandatory until further notice. Passengers are requested to bring their own face coverings while travelling.
