Hong Kong Runways Stay Open Overnight to Accommodate Typhoon Flights

On Monday and Tuesday of this week, Hong Kong International Airport (HKG) will have remained open overnight in order to help serve 2,000 flights that were rescheduled as a result of Typhoon Mangkhut, which tore through the region on Sunday.

“Usually the two runways take turns to be closed for maintenance at night,” said a spokesperson for the Airport Authority. “But we will have both of them open for two nights to clear as much of the backlog as possible.”

Typhoon Mangkhut is reportedly the most intense storm on record to have hit Hong Kong.
