PAL, Sea Air cancels morning flights—NAIA exec

By

MANILA, Philippines — Flights of Philippine Airlines (PAL) and Sea Air were cancelled Tuesday morning due to the continuous rains and floods brought by tropical storm “Maring.”

Ninoy Aquino International Airport (NAIA) General Manager Angel Honrado said in a radio interview that Sea Air flights going to the provinces of Iloilo, Bacolod, and Cebu throughout the day have been cancelled.

All PAL flights up to 12 noon were also cancelled, Honrado said. “They are still assessing the weather situation up to 12 noon” before they will issue another advisory, he said.

Honrado said that the roads around the airport were currently flooded and impassable.

He said that it would cause further delays of the flights because some pilots and crew members would have difficulty coming to the airport.

Incoming flights, including international flights, however, continued to arrive at the NAIA but the planes may be grounded at the terminal because of the bad weather, Honrado said.

The list of cancelled flights have been announced by the Department of Transportation and Communications (DOTC) in its twitter account @DOTCPhilippines:

5J-563 MNL-Cebu

5J-564 Cebu-MNL
