Super typhoon disrupts Hong Kong flights

Hong Kong flights have been disrupted after a deadly typhoon struck the region.

Super Typhoon Haima has already left a trail of destruction and at least four people dead in the Philippines as it made landfall with winds of up to 140mph.

The storm has since spun north across the South China Sea towards Hong Kong and southern China

Two British Airways flights due to leave from Heathrow to Hong Kong yesterday were put back until this morning to avoid the typhoon.

Flights to Heathrow which were due to depart Hong Kong later today will also be delayed and will now depart on Saturday morning local time.

“The safety of our customers is always our top priority and we are in regular contact with the airport authorities as the storm moves through the area,” BA said.

Cathay Pacific warned that the typhoon will cause “significant disruptions, including cancellations and delays” to flights to and from Hong Kong today and urged passengers to check the status of their flight before raveling to the airport.
