Flights between here and Taipei have so far been only modestly disrupted by Typhoon Salao, which lashed Taiwan early on Thursday.

In all, one third - three out of nine Taipei-bound flights from Changi Airport were grounded, and three were delayed.

Of the flights coming from Taipei, three were cancelled and the same number delayed.

Singapore Airlines delayed its twice-daily flights by several hours. Jetstar cancelled its service, which flies via Taipei to Osaka.
