Hong Kong Airport cancels flights
Addis Ababa, August 12, 2019 (FBC) – Hong Kong International Airport has cancelled departing flights, as protests in its main terminal continue for a fourth day.
Thousands are gathered at the airport – which is one of the world’s busiest.
In a statement, officials said operations had been “seriously disrupted” by the public assembly.
In a statement on Monday, Hong Kong’s Airport Authority said they were cancelling all flights that were not yet checked in.
They advised members of the public not to travel to the airport but said arrivals already heading into Hong Kong would be allowed to land.
About 75 million passengers passed through the airport – which is a major international transit hub – in 2018.
