Hong Kong Airport cancels all outbound flights; Thousands of passengers stranded

Published on : Monday, August 12, 2019

All outbound flights from Hong Kong Airport have been cancelled for the day after thousands of pro-democracy protesters crowded into the main terminal. Hong Kong International Airport said  that afternoon that the demonstration “seriously disrupted” airport operations.

 

 

It added that all check-in services for departing flights had been suspended, while incoming flights were also being diverted or cancelled. It said only those flights that have already completed the check-in process will move ahead.

 

 

The UK Foreign Office has warned that a protest at Hong Kong Airport on 12 August has resulted in the cancellation of all flights out of Hong Kong for the remainder of 12 August. The airport authorities advise members of the public not to travel to the airport.

 

 

British Airways, Virgin Atlantic and Cathay Pacific all fly direct to and from the U.K., with passengers also affected by non-direct routes with Lufthansa Airlines, Etihad Airlines and Emirates Airlines.

 

On the Hong Kong Airport website, two British Airways flights to London have been cancelled, along with a Cathay Pacific flight and a Virgin Atlantic flight, resulting in over a thousand Brits without any flights today. The concerned travellers were left to ask on social media what was happening.
