Lightning alert at NAIA; no flights affected
No flights were affected in Sunday’s red lightning alert at the Ninoy Aquino International Airport, according to the Manila International Airport Authority.
The MIAA issued the red lightning alert from 12:41 p.m. to 12:55 p.m., when it was downgraded to yellow lightning alert. The alert was lifted at 1:12 p.m.
During red lightning alert, the ramp movement for both aircraft and ramp personnel is temporarily suspended – a safety measure to prevent any incidents from occurring while lightning is prevalent in the area.
In past weeks, a number of international and domestic flights were either delayed or cancelled at the NAIA, or diverted to Clark, due to red lightning alerts.
On June 25, a ground handler at NAIA suffered injuries when lightning struck in the vicinity of the airport. He fell from the ladder while detaching ground power unit from the aircraft.
