Cathay Dragon said on Sunday that it's suspending its passenger services between Kuala Lumpur and Hong Kong until October 3 after five passengers who travelled to the SAR last week were confirmed with Covid-19.

The airline said it was told late on Saturday about the cases.

It said the passengers flew to Hong Kong on Friday, and were connecting passengers travelling from India on an India Express flight. The airline cited local health authorities as saying that all of them had produced negative tests for coronavirus as required under current regulations.

Cathay Dragon operates three scheduled flights a week between Hong Kong and Kuala Lumpur, and said it was informing all affected passengers of the suspension and would arrange refunds or make alternative arrangements.

It said it was working to help officials trace anyone who'd been in close contact with the affected passengers, and the aircraft had been sent for deep cleaning.
