Fiji airline monitors HK protests

7:17 am on 17 August 2019

Fiji Airways says it is monitoring the situation in Hong Kong where pro-democracy demonstrations have escalated since last month.

Hundreds of flights were cancelled this week after protesters flooded the Hong Kong International Airport calling on the government to step down.

Fiji Airways said it planned to continue operating its Nadi-Hong Kong and Hong Kong-Nadi services as scheduled.

But the airline said passengers travelling from Hong Kong should report to the airport earlier to avoid any delays.

More than 120 airlines fly in and out of Hong Kong.
