Hong Kong airport cancels flights as protests continue

Hong Kong airport authorities have cancelled hundreds of flights due to a city-wide strike that has affected many transportation services.

Many of the cancelled flights are with local carriers Cathay Pacific, Cathay Dragon, Hong Kong Airlines and HK Express. All four airlines have advised passengers to check the status of their flight before travelling to the airport and are offering travel waivers to affected passengers to rebook or re-route flights.

“The Airport Authority advises passengers to check with their airlines for the latest flight information, and to proceed to the airport only when their seats and flight time have been confirmed,” the airport said in a statement.
