If you’re planning to head to Hong Kong International Airport, you will need to make alternative plans, as the airport is currently closed to departing flights.
At the moment, a protest is going on as part of the Hong Kong Protest movement, where a sit-in is going on.
Flights are not being allowed to depart the airport, but are being allowed to land and passengers allowed to enter Hong Kong currently.
The airport states:
Airport operations at Hong Kong International Airport have been seriously disrupted, all flights have been cancelled. All passengers are advised to leave the terminal buildings as soon as possible. Affected passengers please contact their respective airlines for flight arrangement.
The situation is very fluid at the airport at the moment.
Here’s the only advice I can offer:
- If you’re booked to travel to Hong Kong today, contact your airline as soon as possible to identify waivers and changes
- If you’re due to depart Hong Kong, contact your airline – you aren’t going anywhere today, and seek accommodation.
- If you’re at Hong Kong Airport, exit the airport as soon as is reasonably possible, as safe as possible to a safe area
- Keep safe and keep up-to-date with local news – such as the South China Morning Post
The situation is fluid at best, with the situation changing minute to minute. Please stay safe when travelling.
