Flight disruption continues after Hong Kong typhoon

Cathay Pacific flights continue to be disrupted after a typhoon hit Hong Kong earlier in the week.

Passengers booked on flights until Friday are being asked to postpone non-essential travel.

The airline is waiving re-booking, re-routing, cancellation and refund charges for all tickets issued worldwide on or before July 24 for travel until July 27.

Cathay said the disruption was being caused due to availability of ground services in support of flight operations at Hong Kong International Airport.

Passengers are being advised to first check the latest flight status before leaving for the airport.

A statement on the airline’s website said: “Cathay Pacific continues to monitor the situation closely and will issue further updates once more information becomes available.

“We regret any inconvenience this may cause and hope for passengers’ understanding.”
