50 NAIA flights canceled amid safety, aircraft issues 

account_balancePasay chat_bubble_outline0 Comments

Three major airlines canceled some of its international and domestic flights on January 14 due to safety and aircraft issues.

At least 50 flights were cancelled by the Philippine Airlines (PAL), Cebu Pacific (CEB) and AirAsia Philippines, data from the Manila International Airport Authority (MIAA) showed.

Aviation authorities halted flight operations at NAIA on Sunday night, because of the presence of volcanic ash clouds on major traffic airways.

Partial operations resumed on Monday, starting at 10 a.m. for departure flights, and 12 noon for arrivals.

Thousands of passengers were affected from the temporary halt in operations, and airlines had to depend on the availability of slots.

"We had to cancel some flights today due to aircraft issues. We are in the recovery phase -- the period within which we fly our affected passengers to and out of Manila," PAL spokesperson Cielo Villaluna said in an interview.

She added that over the last two days, PAL had 180 flight cancellations, and approximately 35,000 affected passengers.

AirAsia Philippines, meanwhile, announced that its flight cancellations on Tuesday were made to ensure the safety of passengers and aircraft.

At 9 a.m., CEB issued an advisory that its operations are back to normal. MIAA's record, however, showed at least nine canceled CEB flights on Tuesday.

Passengers of canceled CEB flights may rebook their flights within 30 days without penalties, according to the carrier.
