The continuing protests In Hong Kong’s airport could have a negative impact on Sydney Airport Holdings Pty Ltd’s (ASX: SYD) according to reporting by the AFR on analyst work.

Airlines have supposedly been using slightly smaller planes to transport passengers to Hong Kong from Sydney, Melbourne and Brisbane.

Therefore, due to these impacts, Sydney Airport EBITDA for 2019 could be reduced by around $3 million. Only time will tell whether the analyst’s calculations are right or not, but the protests are certainly having an effect on other South East Asian places.
