The Current Situation in Hong Kong
Update on 12 August 2019
Due to changing developments in recent days, we would like to update all our partners on the situation unfolding in Hong Kong.
From 09-11 August demonstrations were held in Hong Kong Airport consisting of peaceful a sit-in, though unfortunately clashes broke out in other parts of the city on Saturday 10 and protesters took part in an unapproved march in Tai Po. Following the march, officers and demonstrators engaged in at least seven districts across the city resulting in a number of injuries.
Clashes with police were particularly intense on Sunday night compared with previous days, and further demonstrations are expected at different districts within this week.
The Airport Authority announced it has cancelled all flights after 18:00 local time today. At present Tsing Ma Bridge is blocked by vehicles with the only way to access the airport by Airport Express Railway.
Destination Asia Hong Kong is in close contact with all agents with guests on the ground or scheduled to arrive in coming days. We will continue to monitor the situation and provide updates as necessary.
