(Hong Kong) Dragonair today (Wednesday, 1 August) announced that it will suspend its Taipei flight operations to and from Hong Kong from 6:00 pm today until at least 12:00 noon on 2 August due to the forecasted adverse weather as a result of Typhoon Saola.
The last flight departed Hong Kong to Taipei today was KA486 and the last flight from Taipei was KA487 bound for Hong Kong. Passengers whose flights are cancelled are advised not to go to the airport. Dragonair will assist with alternative arrangements for affected passengers and they are advised to review booking changes and update their contact details for receiving the latest flight status updates via SMS or email in Manage My Booking at www.dragonair.com.
