National carrier Singapore Airlines (SIA) cancelled two scheduled flights on Friday (Aug 5) due to the “evolving airspace restrictions” as a result of China’s military drills near Taiwan.

In response to TODAY’s queries on Thursday night, SIA said that the affected flights are SQ878 and SQ879.

SQ878 flies from Singapore to Taipei; SQ879 flies from Taipei to Singapore.

A check by TODAY on the Changi Airport website showed that both flights have been cancelled. SQ878 was supposed to depart Changi Airport Terminal 3 at 11.45am on Friday, while SQ879 was scheduled to arrive in Singapore at 10.15pm later in the day.

SIA said that the safety of its customers and employees remains its “top priority”.

“SIA will continue to monitor the situation closely and make any adjustments, as necessary,” it said.

“SIA customers who booked directly with us may use our Assistance Request Form to make booking changes or seek a refund. Those who require urgent assistance may also reach out to their local Singapore Airlines reservation office.”
