Travel agents are working frantically to re-route trips, as Hong Kong faces another night of flight disruption.

A mass sit-in at the airport has meant hundreds of flights have been cancelled two nights in a row.

Although the city's Airport Authority has an interim injunction curbing protesters, there are still fears travel will be affected.

House of Travel's Brent Thomas told Heather du Plessis-Allan they're advising people to keep away.

"If they're not going to Hong Kong directly and staying there, if they're are going to Europe which much of the customers are, we're looking to see if the can move through other ports, say Singapore or Abu Dhabi or even China itself."
