Flights cancelled due to Hong Kong protests

More than 200 flights have been cancelled in Hong Kong as pro-democracy protests continue to impact the transport system.

Most of the flights affected are with Cathay Pacific, which advised customers to postpone non-essential travel.

“We strongly advise customers not to go to the airport unless they have a confirmed booking. Please note that standby travel is not available at this moment,” it said.

It has waived rebooking and rerouting charges for travel today.

It told customers travelling to/from Hong Kong International Airport that In-Town Check-in for all flights has been suspended and that congestion at the airport is highly likely.

“We suggest passengers arrive 3 to 4 hours prior to their flight’s scheduled departure time,” it said.

There have been delays on the Mass Transit Railway (MTR) after scuffles broke out between commuters and activists who were trying to stop trains leaving.
