(Hong Kong) Dragonair today (Wednesday, 8 August) announced that today’s flights to and from Shanghai, Hangzhou and Ningbo are cancelled, as Strong Typhoon Haikui sweeps through Eastern China and wind speeds exceed operational limits.
Dragonair is closely monitoring the situation and, once the local weather is cleared for operation, we will mount extra flights to get our passengers to their destinations. Passengers are strongly advised to first check the latest flight information on the airline’s website, www.dragonair.com, before departing for the airport.
In order to avoid inconvenience caused by the expected disruption, passengers whose flights are cancelled are strongly advised not to go to the airport and are advised to defer non-essential travel. To ensure passengers receive the latest flight status updates via SMS or e-mail, they are advised to update contact details in Manage My Booking at the airline’s website.
The airline will waive re-booking and re-routing charges for all tickets issued worldwide (irrespective of fare type) on or before 7 August for travel on Dragonair to, from or via Shanghai, Hangzhou and Ningbo between 7 and 10 August.
We will issue further updates once more information becomes available. The airline regrets any inconvenience this may cause and thanks passengers for their understanding.
