Hong Kong Airport Cancels Flights For Second Day As More Protests Erupt

Tuesday, 13 August 2019

Anti-government protesters brought chaos to Hong Kong's airport for a second consecutive day Tuesday, forcing airlines to suspend check-in for departing flights, as demonstrators extended their standoff with authorities who have been unable to quell months of dissent.After mass cancellations the previous evening, flights had been gradually returning to normal throughout Tuesday, even as thousands of black-clad demonstrators returned to occupy the terminal with placards denouncing police brutality and calling for freedom for Hong Kong.

 

 

 

But by late afternoon, with protesters using luggage carts as makeshift barricades and blocking passengers from reaching the departure gates, causing long lines, airport authorities said they were suspending check-in at both terminals.Arguments erupted between frustrated passengers and protesters, with some stranded passengers crying and saying they just wanted to gethome.
