Typhoon Mangkhut 16 Sept 2018

Be aware there is a fair chance HKG will get walloped on Sunday by Typhoon Mangkhut (possible super-typhoon by then). Cathay have started warning customers about disruption and there is a waiver of fees for flights booked for 16 or 17 Sept.

This is update 1 and the situation is likely to change over the next few days. Cathay Website update 1

Latest update: 11 Sep 2018 17:45 HKT (GMT+8)

We are closely monitoring the potential impact of Typhoon Mangkhut as it is approaching Hong Kong. Flight operations remain normal but the situation is likely to deterioriate in the coming days, with flight delays and cancellations possible this coming weekend.

With immediate effect, rebooking, rerouting, and refund charges will be waived for all tickets issued worldwide (irrespective of fare type) on/before 11 September 2018, for travel with a Cathay Pacific/Cathay Dragon confirmed booking, arriving to and departing from Hong Kong between 16 September and 17 September 2018. We strongly encourage passengers travelling on these dates, and whose bookings were made on or our mobile app, to rebook their journey via Manage Booking online.

Please view our Special ticketing guidelines for Typhoon Mangkhut for further details.

All customers scheduled to fly are urged to check Flight Status before proceeding to the airport. To ensure you receive the latest flight status updates via SMS or email, please update contact details in Manage Booking.
