Anti-government protests in Hong Kong constrained airport authorities to suspend flights for the second day straight on Tuesday.
Air India Cancels All Flights To Hong Kong Due to Anti-government Protests
India’s national bearer Air India, as well, dropped flights to and from Hong Kong, and was offering full refund on tickets, as indicated by tour operators, who said they also were deferring crossing out charges on that segment.
“Air India cancelled flights and was giving a full refund. For Cathay Pacific, you can switch over to other partner carriers, which is much more traveller-friendly,” said Sharat Dhall, COO, B2C at Yatra.com. “We are waiving off the cancellation charges on Hong Kong flights for the next few days. We hope the situation returns to normal.”
Indiver Rastogi, president, global business travel, Thomas Cook, said his organization is in consistent touch with its clients and has kept them refreshed on the developments.
Daniel D’souza, country head, leisure, SOTC Travel, said, “With the current situation in Hong Kong, customers are advised to postpone all non-essential travel until normalcy ensues. We are in constant touch with our customers and have made avenues for assistance at every point.”
SOTC has also postponed the scheduled departures to Hong Kong by a day, D’souza said, adding, “We are suggesting alternative routes to avoid any inconvenience.”
