How about the flights in Guangzhou Shenzhen Airport after the heavy rain and hail in rainstorm

On April 27th, Guangzhou was hit by hail and tornadoes, and a tornado warning was still issued at night.

According to the latest news from the Central Meteorological Observatory, there are still heavy to rainstorm in the border area between Guangdong and Fujian today, and a new round of rainfall will be launched tomorrow, which will be more intense and more extensive.

Affected by strong thunderstorms, Baiyun Airport has recently launched multiple large-scale flight delay responses. At 22:26 last night, there were 51 passenger flights at Baiyun Airport that were delayed for more than an hour and had not yet departed. The blue emergency response for large-scale flight delays was immediately activated.

At 23:11, Guangzhou Baiyun Airport launched a yellow emergency response for large-scale flight delays. At that time, there were 70 passenger flights that were delayed for more than an hour and had not yet departed.

At 2:49 am on the 28th, the number of flights delayed for more than an hour without leaving Baiyun Airport was reduced to 59, and the emergency response level for large-scale flight delays was downgraded to blue.

At 4:43 pm at night, 35 flights were delayed for more than an hour without leaving the port, and the emergency response for large-scale flight delays was lifted.

According to the latest information learned by reporters from Guangzhou Baiyun Airport, Guangzhou Airport has not resumed emergency response for large-scale flight delays. Today, Baiyun Airport plans to have 1170 inbound and outbound flights, including 573 outbound flights and 597 inbound flights.

According to the weather forecast, it will be cloudy and cloudy at Baiyun Airport today, with showers or thunderstorms. Short to moderate to heavy showers will be accompanied by thunderstorms, with easterly to southeast winds of 2-6 meters per second, visibility of over 6 kilometers, heavy rainfall of 2-3 kilometers, and temperature of 23-30 degrees Celsius. Destination airports such as Xiamen, Fuzhou, Nanjing, Shanghai, Hangzhou, Hefei, and Ningbo also experience varying degrees of thunderstorm weather. Baiyun Airport cooperates closely with air traffic control, airlines, and resident units to timely manage flights and passengers, ensuring overall stability and order.

According to real-time data from the flight manager, as of 9:35 pm today, Guangzhou Baiyun Airport has cancelled 225 outbound flights, with a cancellation rate of 29.6% and a delay rate of 71.2%. There were 129 cancelled flights at Shenzhen Airport, with a cancellation rate of 22.13% and a delay rate of 70.75%.

According to reporters, extreme weather conditions in Guangdong and Fujian are also affecting the normal operation of flights nationwide. Because the ability of an aircraft to take off and land depends not only on whether the departure and destination meet the conditions for flight takeoff and landing, but also on the weather conditions along the route, thunderstorms can easily lead to a large backlog of flights.
