Cathay Pacific closes typhoon hotline as services resume (3:00pm)
03 Sep 2003
Cathay Pacific Airways today announced that its telephone hotline for enquires about flight disruptions caused by Typhoon Dujuan will be closed at 4:00pm as normal services are resumed.
The airline expects to operate all scheduled services today, although gusting crosswinds at Hong Kong International Airport may cause occasional short delays in the actual departure of individual aircraft.
Flights that were suspended yesterday are being operated today, among them postponed services to Europe and Australia, which departed this morning. A number of passengers whose flights were cancelled or who may have missed connections may face some further delays. The airline regrets any inconvenience this may cause and is working to protect those affected passengers to other flights as soon as possible.
Disruptions caused by Typhoon Dujuan will have some residual impact to normal schedules over the next day or so, although they are expected to be minimal.
The airline’s in-town check-in service at Hong Kong and Kowloon stations has been resumed, as have its online, kiosk and telephone check-in services.
Passengers can still check updated flight arrival and departure information by visiting the airline’s website.
