No they haven't. Read it again, they have stopped most transit flights.

You might want to change your thread title before the fake news police ban you.

Why would anyone choose HK as a transit hub with the threat of ending up in Penny's Bay as a close contact through no fault of your own. Well, you cannot now anyways...

Singapore wins.
Hong Kong as a hub for world travel is dead and so is the airline that supports it due to the governments dumb decisions..

The United States moved Friday to block 44 flights to the U.S. by Chinese airlines in retaliation for China forcing the cancellation of flights by U.S. airlines.Liu Pengyu, a spokesperson for the Chinese Embassy in Washington, said Friday the policy for international passenger flights entering China has "been applied equally to Chinese and foreign airlines in a fair, open and transparent way."
He called the U.S. move "very unreasonable" and added, "We urge the U.S. side to stop disrupting and restricting the normal passenger flights" by Chinese airlines.

The Transportation Department said France and Germany have taken similar action against China’s COVID-19 actions.
