All remaining flights cancelled for a second day amid Hong Kong protests

Hong Kong's airport has cancelled all remaining departing flights for the second day after protesters took over the terminals.

The airport authority announced early on Tuesday evening that check-in services for departing flights were suspended as of 4:30pm.

Other departing flights that have completed the process will continue to operate.

It said it did not expect arriving flights to be affected, though dozens of arriving flights were already cancelled.
