An official at PIA, who declined to be named, told The Phuket News this morning (Aug 2) that three flights arriving from Hong Kong (UO 763, KA 212 and CX 5212) had been cancelled due to the weather conditions.

However, she added that departures are scheduled to leave the airport as normal.

“Travellers need to check with their travel representatives for their airlines, they have all the current statuses of the flights and they will be able to give better advise,” the official said.

A message posted on the Dargonair Facebook page yesterday afternoon (Aug 1) read:

Flights affected by Typhoon Nida

Latest update 1 Aug 2016 19:00HKT (GMT+8)

Affected by Typhoon Nida, we will be cancelling a number of flights originally scheduled to depart tonight (1 Aug) and tomorrow (2 Aug).

As the situation can change rapidly, please be reminded to check your latest flight status on our website before departing for the airport.

To ensure you receive the latest flight updates via SMS or email, please update your contact details on your booking online via “Manage Booking”.

If your flight is cancelled, our reservations team is now working hard to rebook you on the next available flight; however, there are significant challenges as many flights are operating at high load factors during this peak summer travel period. Please bear with us, your new itinerary will be reflected on the “Manage Booking” page as soon as possible.

Gusts of 151 kilometres per hour whipped the city and rain lashed down during the night, and authorities warned of floods and landslides.

Streets were deserted this morning as school was suspended and workers stayed at home, with buses and trains operating only a very limited service. (See story here.)
