Hong Kong airport refuses to feed Russian tourists because of sanctions and war in Ukraine
Russian tourists did not rejoice for long at the resumption of flights with Hong Kong, which is scheduled for December this year. Even before the tourists started buying tickets, they were warned not to expect a warm welcome. Russians simply do not want to be fed.
Fearing global sanctions, local caterers advised guests from the Russian Federation to bring their own food on board. This was reported by the Russian media.
Flights from Moscow to Hong Kong were added to the airline's schedule this month. Round-trip prices in economy with luggage start at 64 thousand rubles (23 thousand hryvnias). The flight time will range from 9.5 to 11 hours, depending on the route.
Aeroflot's Russian tourists will be able to spend all this time dreaming about lunch, as they are refused to be fed on the plane and at the airport.
"Informed sources claim that Aeroflot has had problems with food on flights to Hong Kong, which are scheduled to be operated from the end of December. Local caterers allegedly refuse to serve the national carrier for fear of sanctions," the Russians write.
The Russian Federation is already coming up with an alternative: to pack travelers with food, create their own kitchen in Hong Kong, or provide a list of permitted products and make them prepare their own snacks.
But this is not the only thing that worries tourists. Some of them wondered whether a foreign airport would refuse to maintain the aircraft in order to avoid sanctions. The question remains in the air.
