Hong Kong Protests Update 2

AFIF has been in contact with our affiliate Industry Association, The Hong Kong Association of Freight Forwarding & Logistics Ltd (HAFFA) concerning the escalation in protest actions and the impact on freight and logistics operations in Hong Kong.

Following is the latest update today.  

Please find below the information shared by our members and Airport Authority Hong Kong:

Demonstrators in the airport yesterday blocked the Departure Hall, preventing passengers and crews from checking in or clearing security.

Passenger flights were affected but operations resumed this morning with a few passenger flights cancelled.

As for freighters, so far the impact is minimal. Landside traffic is normal, cargo operations are not affected. 

Please check with your respective carrier for specific flight updates.

BBC News is reporting this afternoon

‘On Wednesday, the Airport Authority said it had obtained an injunction to restrain protesters who obstruct or interfere with operations.

In a statement, it said people would be "restrained from attending or participating in any demonstration... other than in the area designated by the Airport Authority".

It was not clear how the injunction would be enforced.’
