Air Philippines, Cebu Pacific extend free re-booking for passengers who missed flights
MANILA, Philippines – Air Philippines and Cebu Pacific extended on Wednesday, their free re-booking promo for their passengers who missed their flights because of bad weather, floods and heavy traffic in roads leading to the Ninoy Aquino International Airport (NAIA).
This developed as at least seven Air Philippines Express flights were temporarily diverted to the Clark International Airport earlier in the day due to heavy rains and windy conditions in the vicinity of the Ninoy Aquino International Airport.
Diverted were flights 2P 990 from General Santos City, 2P 940 from Ozamis City, 2P 092 from Cauayan in Isabela, 2P 046 from Caticlan, 2P 030 from Catarman in Northern Samar, 2P 026 from Legazpi City and 2P 970 from Kalibo—all of which were supposed to arrive at the NAIA Terminal 3 between 9 a.m. and 11 a.m.
The seven flights eventually arrived at NAIA between 11 a.m. and 4 p.m.
Operations in the other three terminals were normal. At Terminal 2, Philippine Airlines cancelled flight PR 336 to the Pu Dong International Airport in Shanghai, China, which was supposed to arrive at 11:30 a.m. The return trip, PR 337, set to leave at 7 p.m. was also cancelled.
