- All passengers must go through temperature screening before boarding the flight to Hong Kong and any passenger with a body temperature above normal must be refused boarding
- Passengers must undertake health declarations before boarding

- Operators must take virus containment measures such as requiring all passengers wear face masks and hand sanitizer is provided
- Passengers are requirement to wear face masks covering their nose and mouth arriving and at all times at the airport
- Passengers must sanitize their hands and disinfect their shoes on sanitizing mats when disembarking
