CIVIL AVIATION AUTHORITY OF THE PHILIPPINES
Inbound commercial international flights will remain restricted at the Ninoy Aquino International Airport (NAIA) until June 10, the Civil Aviation Authority of the Philippines (CAAP) said on Saturday. CAAP spokesperson Eric Apolonio said the limitation would only apply to inbound commercial flights. NAIA will only accommodate 400 passengers a day, thus the limited inbound flights. Chartered flights (will) have no limitations, regardless of how many passengers they carry but still need to seek approval before flying.
NAIA earlier requested CAAP to issue a notice to airmen (NOTAM) regarding the inbound international commercial flight restriction.
In a statement, the CAAP announced that charted flights must secure clearance from the Department of Foreign Affairs (DFA) and CAAP, and will only be allowed to land NAIA on Mondays and Thursdays.
Commercial flights will be allowed on Tuesdays, Wednesdays, Fridays, Saturdays, and Sundays, after getting approval from CAAP 48 hours before the scheduled departure from the airport of origin.
With this CAAP reiterated that although every airline must seek permit from them, it would still depend on MIAA (Manila International Airport Authority) as they would be prioritized in slotting which will be coming from MIAA.
From May 3 until June 10, the following are exempted from the restrictions: en route flights experiencing an emergency, cargo flights, air ambulance, military flights, weather mitigation flights, maintenance flights. (PNA)
