Virgin Atlantic drops Hong Kong deals, blow to Aviation Hub revival

HONG KONG—Virgin Atlantic Airways Ltd. announced it would close its office in Hong Kong and end flight service to and from London’s Heathrow Airport, a sign of the hurdles the Chinese city faces as it seeks to regain its reputation as an aviation hub.

Virgin, which has operated in Hong Kong for nearly 30 years, said the complexities resulting from the closure of Russian airspace contributed to its decision to end its service. The airline previously announced it would resume Heathrow-Hong Kong service in March 2023 after suspending service in December 2021.
