More than 30 flights canceled

More than 30 flights were canceled at Pudong and Hongqiao airports, and several others were delayed or diverted to land at other airports yesterday morning due to heavy rains and lightning.

Local air traffic controllers issued a yellow alert, the third-highest in a four-tier system, for flight delays at both city airports yesterday morning and expected takeoff and landing capacity to be reduced by 30 percent up to 4pm.

The alert was later extended, meaning takeoffs and landings in Shanghai could be reduced further through 8pm.

Twenty flights had been canceled at Pudong International Airport as of 11am due to rainstorms. Another flight had to be diverted to a nearby airport, while two others were delayed for about two hours.

Six flights were canceled at Hongqiao International Airport, and seven flights had to land at nearby airports.

Travelers are advised to check the latest flight information and contact airlines to avoid being stranded at the city’s airports.
