Two former flight attendants arrested for Covid breach.

Hong Kong police have arrested and charged two Cathay Pacific flight attendants for allegedly contravening Covid regulations.

The statement, which was published late on Monday, did not name the airline but the announcement comes after Cathay Pacific fired two aircrew who were suspected of breaching Covid-19 protocols.


The pair have been accused of “conducting unnecessary activities” during their home isolation period in Hong Kong after spending Christmas in the United States.

They both later tested positive for the Omicron variant.

The duo have been released on bail with their case to be heard in separate courts on February 9. If convicted, they could face up to six months in prison and a fine of up to HK$5,000 ($641).

Cathay chairman Patrick Healy said the company was cooperating with the government on the probes.

Despite the news, Healy said the majority of Cathay staff do follow the rules and the strict quarantine under “unparalleled” circumstances.

Cathay Pacific has faced blame from locals for the initial spread of Omicron into the community.

Carrie Lam, Chief Executive of Hong Kong, had previously called out Cathay Pacific for its failure to ensure employees follow local Covid laws, leading to two investigations into the company.
