Several flights to and from Hong Kong were canceled on Monday as city-wide strikes disrupted business operations and major transportation lines in the former British colony.

“The resumption of normal operations by PAL to / from Hong Kong comes after protest actions within the airport premises have scaled down and as more manpower reported for work duties,” the flag carrier said in a statement on Facebook.

“PAL continues to closely monitor the situation and assures the flying public of regular updates,” it added.

Affected PAL passengers of cancelled flights will be accommodated on Tuesday. They may also choose to refund or rebook within 30 days from their original flight date with free of rebooking charges and refund fees waived, the airline added.

Hong Kong visitors have also been advised to remain vigilant of their surroundings and avoid areas where protesters may converge and carry out demonstrations.
