CAAP: Limited flights at NAIA on Oct 23
MANILA – The Civil Aviation Authority of the Philippines (CAAP) said a 30-hour maintenance procedure for the Manila radar facility will be undertaken on October 23, resulting in limited flights.
CAAP said the 30-hour maintenance work will begin October 23, 1 a.m. As a result, air traffic controllers will limit the number of aircraft under its control to 11 arrivals and 11 departures per hour.
"International flight schedules will not be affected for arrival and departure sequence", the CAAP said.
CAAP said general aviation (non-commercial) flights will not be allowed at the NAIA during the 30-hour maintenance work "except for emergency requirements."
"Departure flights will be subject to Air Traffic Flow Management (ATFM) release, and departure clearance," CAAP said.
The CAAP said the scheduled preventive maintenance procedure was discussed with the Department of Transportation and Communications (DOTC) and all airlines operating at the Ninoy Aquino International Airport (NAIA).
