According to the Hainan Provincial COVID-19 Prevention and Control Headquarters, Hainan is actively taking effective measures to advance the return of stranded passengers. At present, the province has fully coordinated with the destination provinces and cities of the stranded passengers to ensure that they can return quickly, safely and orderly.


On the afternoon of August 14, Sanya City issued the "Announcement on Ensuring Quality Service for Travelers Departing via the Sanya Phoenix International Airport", specifying that from 0:00 on August 15, the commercial operation of domestic passenger flights at Phoenix International Airport will be resumed in an orderly manner. Travelers who meet pandemic prevention and control conditions shall first log in to the Hainan Health Code "Departure Application" (离琼申请) to apply for a "Departure Code" before heading to the airport. Upon arrival at the airport, travelers’ ticket purchase records and “departure codes” shall be inspected before they are permitted to leave the island. Sanya Phoenix Airport initially plans to arrange 40 flights on August 15th, and 90 flights on 16th and 17th respectively.

Hainan Province has effectively strengthened the transportation capacity and strictly implemented the requirements of closed-loop management. Since 11:00 on August 13, the diversified "1+3" model has been adopted to ensure the safety and efficiency of passengers traveling to the airport during the static management period. Between August 9th to 18:00 on the 14th, Hainan Province had arranged a total of 140 flights, facilitating the return of 21,837 stranded passengers to Shanghai, Guangzhou, Shenzhen, Chengdu and other destinations. In the coming days, Hainan will continue to make every effort to organize and guarantee the return of stranded passengers in accordance with the principles of “targeted policies, batch transfer, safe and orderly return, and strict prevention of the spread of Covid-19 outside the island”.
