LIST: Canceled Philippines-Hong Kong flights on August 13
MANILA, Philippines — Several flights to and from Hong Kong were canceled late Tuesday afternoon as thousands of pro-democracy protesters continue to flood Hong Kong International Airport for the second consecutive day.
Hong Kong airport authorities suspended all check-ins, reversing a previous announcement that all departing flights have been canceled.
The decision to suspend all check-ins in the airport—one of the world’s busiest—happened after demonstrators blocked passengers from reaching entrances to the departure area in both terminals.
It came a day after authorities announced the unprecedented complete cancellation of all arriving and departing flights over a massive rally.
Here is the list of the affected flights to and from the Philippines:
- 5J 114 (Manila to Hong Kong) ETD 6:05 p.m.
- 5J 115 (Hong Kong to Manila) ETD 10:05 p.m.
- 5J 120 (Clark to Hong Kong) ETD 7:20 p.m.
- 5J 121 (Hong Kong to Clark) ETD 10:30 p.m.
