Flights of Hong Kong-based carriers Cathay Pacific (CX) and Dragonair (KA) are currently operating as scheduled despite the missile attack by North Korea on Yeonpyong Island, 80km off the west coast of Incheon this afternoon, November 23, 2010. The launch killed at least one person and injured five others.
The airlines are closely monitoring the situation and customers are advised to check flight status on www.cathaypacific.com and www.dragonair.com before departing for the airport. They are also requested to enter their contact details in the Manage My Booking tool on the websites to ensure they receive the latest update via SMS or email.
Cathay Pacific has five daily flights to Seoul, while KA has a daily flight to the port city of Busan.
Business Traveller will continue to report flight updates on South Korea should they be issued.
