Q: Has anyone flown to China, from the UK recently

I’m hoping to obtain a PU Letter then visa this month. I need a flight from the UK for the end of the month. I was just wondering if anyone has managed to get a reasonably priced flight that hasn’t been cancelled or changed?

I read the news ... 

 

This was posted on Dec. 25th, 2020 ... and it's also the last thing on the matter on web ... I read last week, that flights from UK to HK are closed for the same reason, i.e. new strain. Can't find the weblink ...

 

https://www.cnbc.com/2020/12/25/china-will-suspend-uk-flights-indefinite...

 

I'd ask for the reliable info at ticket sales counter or at Chinese embassy in London. You'll get an updated info also about quarantine, vax. certificate and more needed at landing in Pe-king-kong.

Thanks for replying. I’ve got both covid jabs so that’s not a problem. My newest issue is trying to get an appointment at my nearest consulate. They’re only open one day a week so there’s no free appointment slots.

If I’m lucky enough to somehow get a visa I then need to find the money for the extortionate flights.

I believe Hong Kong is closed to foreigners. The cheapest flights I can find are 43,000 rmb with a 27 hour layover in Amsterdam, meaning I’d need another PCR and IGM test, which I can’t have at the airport as it’s outside the transit zone and I’m not allowed outside the airport.

UK Carrier Strike Group to head to Asia in biggest show of force in a generation

 

The UK’s largest “signal of maritime and air power” in a generation will set sail next month as the aircraft carrier HMS Queen Elizabeth departs for its first operational deployment.

The £3 billion warship, with eight RAF F35B stealth fighter jets on board, will depart for Asia accompanied by six Royal Navy ships, a submarine, 14 naval helicopters and a company of Royal Marines.

The Carrier Strike Group (CSG), which will carry out visits to India, Japan, South Korea and Singapore, will include the US destroyer USS The Sullivans and the Dutch frigate HNLMS Evertsen.

A squadron of 10 US Marine Corps F35B Lightning II jets will also be embarked on the carrier in what the Ministry of Defence (MoD) is describing as the “largest concentration of maritime and air power to leave the UK in a generation”.

China Flight Departures Collapse Amid Delta Virus Spread

WEDNESDAY, AUG 11, 2021 - 08:26 AM

Flight departures for APAC countries decreased by 2,250 on average each day WoW, one of the most significant declines in months. The collapse was evident in China, where 2,380 departures were scrapped each day this week as the government discouraged travel. Some airports in the country were closed to mitigate the spread of the virus.

After COVID was quickly suppressed in China through mass-scale lockdowns, or at least that's what was displayed on national media, Chinese authorities are battling new outbreaks in 17 provinces. Beijing is canceling large events and suspended planes and trains from entering the city to prevent infections.
