Cathay Pacific suspends all flights due to typhoon 1:30pm
02 Sep 2003
Cathay Pacific Airways this afternoon confirmed that the airline will suspend the arrival and departure of all of its flights in and out of Hong Kong at 5pm local time due to the arrival of Typhoon Dujuan.
Current weather forecasts suggest that all flights scheduled to arrive and depart before that time will be able to operate normally.
A sudden worsening of conditions may force schedule changes sooner. Passengers are therefore advised to call the following numbers to check the status of arriving and departing flights, or check the arrival and departure information posted on the airline's website.
Chinese language: 2747 8888
English language: 2747 8999
Passengers whose flights will be suspended this evening should call the same numbers from 7am tomorrow (Wednesday) morning for an update on their departure time.
The airline's in-town check-in at Hong Kong and Kowloon stations, as well as its online, kiosk and telephone check-in services will remain closed until further notice.
