Protesters had earlier shut down departures and arrivals to Hong Kong.
Hong Kong Airport Authority hopes to resume flights from 6 a.m. on Tuesday after more than 180 departures were canceled earlier today, according to Hong Kong Media.
“The AA will work closely with its business partners with a view to gradually resume normal airport operations as soon as possible,” the Airport Authority told the South China Morning Post later today.
There are still a few hundred protesters at the airport, but their numbers have dwindled greatly as many people left in droves in the afternoon, some on buses and trains, others on foot to nearby locations, the newspaper said. ●
