24 Aug 2012

Cathay Pacific and sister airline Dragonair, which codeshare routes to Taiwan, said that they expected to resume flight operations between Hong Kong and Kaohsiung this evening (flights CX6762/KA456, CX6756/KA450, and CX6763/KA457) but warned that there may be further disruptions. 

Yesterday, the airlines issued an evening update stating that flights CX6758/KA452, CX6752/KA432, CX6754/KA436, and CX6760/KA454 from Hong Kong to Kaohsiung, and flights KA451/CX6757, KA453/CX6759, KA433/CX6753, KA437/CX6755, KA455/CX6761 from Kaohsiung to Hong Kong, would be cancelled on August 24 due to Typhoon Tembin. 

The airline said it would waive re-booking and re-routing charges for all tickets booked on or before August 23 for travel to or from Kaohsiung today. 

China Airlines said at midday today that all its international flights remained operational. It had cancelled the CI711/CI712 Kaohsiung-Manila service this morning. 

Both TransAsia and Eva Air said all their international flights were operating as normal. 

Taiwan’s Central Weather Bureau (see here) said along with flights to Kaohsiung, those to Hualien or Taitung may also be affected by the weather.
