The Hong Kong Airport Authority said the plane crash at Narita airport had affected seven flights between Hong Kong and Tokyo yesterday, with four cancelled.

Japan Airlines and All Nippon Airways cancelled JL832 and NH910 that were scheduled to leave Hong Kong, and two incoming flights, JL731 and NH909.

Another flight, JL736, destined for Tokyo was rerouted to Nagoya yesterday morning while two other morning flights were delayed for about an hour.

Travel Industry Council executive director Joseph Tung Yao-chung said the crash would have a slight impact on Hong Kong tours in Japan - a popular destination for Hongkongers.
