Airlines in Malaysia, budget or otherwise, recently informed their customers about the rescheduling and cancellation of flights between Hong Kong and Malaysia.
This is reportedly due to ongoing protests. Yesterday (5th August), protesters called for a territory-wide strike, which brought Hong Kong’s financial hub to a halt.
