Several airlines have suspended flights in and out of Taiwan as Super Typhoon Nepartak moves closer to the island.
Taiwan’s national carrier China Airlines has issued a statement that it will be adjusting its flight schedule throughout the day based on the typhoon’s movements.
Passengers due to travel with the Skyteam member today are advised to check the website for the latest flight updates. The China Airlines mobile app and customer service call centre will also provide relevant flight information.
From Hong Kong, both Cathay Pacific and Dragonair have suspended all flight operations to Taiwan from 1800 today until 1400 tomorrow.
In addition, flights CX451 and CX531 that depart from Tokyo Narita and Nagoya will omit their scheduled stopovers in Taipei today. These flights will instead operate non-stop to Hong Kong.
Cathay Pacific and Dragonair have also requested passengers flying to Taipei on July 7 and 8 to consider postponing non-essential travel. The airlines will waive re-booking and re-routing fees for all tickets to and from Taiwan, irrespective of fare types.
