Hong Kong’s Airport Authority has grounded all departing flights as protesters began to occupy the building, and has redirected all but a handful of incoming flights. Earlier reports noted that some pilots, flight crews, and air traffic controllers have joined the demonstrations; Beijing has characterized the ongoing protests as “beginning to show the sprouts of terrorism” in response. The airport aims to restart flights at 6 AM local time Tuesday amidst over 180 cancelled or redirected because of the protests—most of these were passenger flights.
