Taipei, Aug. 13 (CNA) Flights between Taiwan and Hong Kong have gradually returned to normal Tuesday after Hong Kong's airport reopened and started to get its operations back on track in the morning, Taiwan aviation officials said.
At Taiwan Taoyuan International Airport, Taiwan's main international gateway, 35 flights to and from Hong Kong are expected to be canceled Tuesday, affecting 6,200 passengers, said Jerry Dann (但昭璧), senior vice president of Taiwan Taoyuan International Airport Co.
The situation will improve in the afternoon, Dann said, and airlines will use bigger aircraft to increase capacity.
"The airlines told us they will be able to transport all stranded passengers today," Dann said.
