Taipei, Aug. 12 (CNA) Major airports in Taiwan have taken some simple contingency measures to deal with cancellations to flights to Hong Kong, which shut down its airport Monday afternoon after pro-democracy protesters disrupted its operations.

Transportation Minister Lin Chia-lung (林佳龍) said in a Facebook post Monday that before the Hong Kong airport resumes normal flights, Taiwanese airports will not allow passengers headed to Hong Kong to enter airport control areas.

At the same time, Hong Kong-bound passengers who have already entered the airport control areas will be asked to give back their boarding passes.

The ministry will also ask airlines to provide food and accommodation for passengers booked to Hong Kong and help them rebook their flights, he said.    [FULL  STORY]
