Cancelled flights: Friday, October 31
MANILA, Philippines – Several flights of Cebu Pacific and PAL Express were suspended on Friday, October 31, due to sunset limitation.
In a tweet, the Department of Transportation and Communications announced the following cancelled flights:
- 5J 911: Manila-Caticlan
- 5J 912: Caticlan-Manila
- 2P 2053: Manila-Caticlan
- 2P 2054: Caticlan-Manila
- 2P 2927: Manila-Legazpi
- 2P 2928: Legazpi-Manila
The Godofredo P. Ramos Airport in Caticlan and Legazpi Airport in Legazpi City only operate from sunrise to sunset.
Due to a lack of instrument landing system, sunset limitation causes light suspensions at these airports, according to Civil Aviation Authority of the Philippines (CAAP) spokesperson Eric Apolonio.
"But soon (they) will be able to operate night operations," he said.
On October 26, two PAL Express flights were also cancelled due to sunset limitation. – Rappler.com
