All Flights Cancelled After Protesters Storm HK Airport
14 Aug 2019
Beginning at noon on August 12th, massive groups in black shirts began entering the Hong Kong International Airport for an unlicensed gathering.
It wasn't long before the lobby at the airport was completely overrun by demonstrators.
Many entrance and exit passages in the airport departure hall were blocked by demonstrators leaving passengers no choice but to wait at the scene. According to the Southern Metropolis Daily, one female passenger who tried to pass asked the demonstrators to let her through and was verbally assaulted by a mob of demonstrators.
By 4 pm, the Hong Kong Airport Authority was forced to launch the Airport Emergency Response Center to announce that all remaining flights on the 12th will be cancelled except for the departing flights those that had completed the registration process and the arrival flights to Hong Kong.
The Hong Kong Airport Authority reminds passengers to check the latest flight status through the airport homepage or other mobile applications before going to the airport to avoid delays.
