2nd round of airport protests have limited impact on Taiwan-HK flights
Taipei, Aug. 13 (CNA) A second round of protests at the Hong Kong International Airport Tuesday afternoon had only limited impact on flights between Hong Kong and Taiwan, local carriers said that day.
China Airlines said its flights CI920, CI924 and CI928 from Hong Kong to Taiwan Taoyuan International Airport, as well as flight CI936 from Hong Kong to Kaohsiung were affected.
While the flights were not canceled, they could only carry passengers transiting via Hong Kong because the airport suspended immigration and security check procedures for departing flights at around 4 p.m. Tuesday.
EVA Airways said none of its flights were affected by the protesters continuing their campaign to preserve Hong Kong's legal freedoms and push for universal suffrage.
The carriers' announcements came after a 5 p.m. statement from Hong Kong airport authorities that read: "Terminal operations at Hong Kong International Airport have been seriously disrupted, and all check-in processes have now been suspended.
"All passengers are advised to leave the terminal buildings as soon as possible. Affected passengers please contact their respective airlines for flight arrangements," the statement said.
