SriLankan Airlines’ flight UL880 from Colombo to Guangzhou (Canton) on 16 September was delayed by an estimated 11 hours due to the closure of Guangzhou Airport on account of the approach of Typhoon Mangkhut. 

The flight is expected to depart Colombo at 0130 local time on 17 September, but could be delayed further according to conditions at Guangzhou Airport.

SriLankan Airlines regrets the inconvenience to its valued passengers, due to circumstances beyond its control. Flights across most of southern China have been disrupted by the approach of the typhoon.

Passengers in Sri Lanka flying from Colombo to Canton are requested to contact SriLankan Airlines Global Contact Centre on 1979. For more information please visit www.srilankan.com.
