Carriers from mainland China have led another round of Hong Kong flight cuts as the civil unrest spirals in the city home to one of Asia’s busiest international airports.

Xiamen Airlines has suspended all flights to Hong Kong International Airport, with the exception of two services a week scheduled temporarily for November.

China Eastern also slashed its 56 flights from Shanghai Pudong to HKIA to 32 per week and removed all large aircraft from the route, according to flight schedule tracker service Airline Route.

Another batch of non-Chinese Asian airlines has also decided to reduce their exposure to Hong Kong as the flight reductions become more frequent.

Garuda Indonesia will go from running 21 flights a week to just four up to mid-December. Thai Airways and Philippine Airlines are each cutting one of five daily flights per week to Hong Kong.
