The British Foreign and Commonwealth Office is investigating reports that flights in and out of Tibet have been suspended due to the unrest in Lhasa. Travel Advice

Does anyone have more information?

Can't say whether or not Lhasa airport is shut but according to channel4 news the trouble in Tibet is the worse since Tiananmen Sq in 1989.
