(Hong Kong) Dragonair today (Tuesday, 24 July) temporarily suspended flight operations in Hong Kong due to Severe Typhoon Vicente at 20 minutes past midnight local time.
The airline will reassess the weather situation at 8 a.m. Tuesday morning to determine when it can resume flights into and out of Hong Kong International Airport. Even when flights resume, delays are possible as the airline works to get its aircraft and crews in position to operate its flights.
Passengers who can defer travel currently scheduled over the next 48 hours are strongly encouraged to do so. Dragonair will waive rebooking and cancellation penalties for travel through 25 July inclusive on flights to, from, and through Hong Kong.
Passengers scheduled to travel on Tuesday should not proceed to the airport unless they have confirmed their flight is operating. Passengers can check their flight's status on this website www.dragonair.com. When traveling to the airport, please plan extra ground travel time as weather conditions may affect public transportation availability.
