Hong Kong’s move to reduce mandatory hotel quarantine for international travelers isn’t enough to bring back tourists, according to Association of Asia Pacific Airlines Director General Subhas Menon. 

“It’s not time to bring out the bubbly,” Menon, whose group represents 14 Asia Pacific carriers including Cathay Pacific Airways Ltd. said in an interview with Bloomberg Television on Tuesday. “It’s always welcome news when measures are relaxed but there’s still a ways to go.”
