The three terminals of NAIA closed for ten hours yesterday, from 11am-11pm, as Typhoon Tisoy battered Metro Manila and the rest of the Luzon.
NAIA runways were opened at 6pm Tuesday night to allow 53 domestic carriers to bring back to Manila all their aircrafts which were diverted to other domestic airports.
MIAA General Manager Ed Monreal advised airline passengers of those flights cancelled not to go to the airport unless they have confirmed bookings and just end up as chance passengers. He said that it is best for them to contact their airline carriers so they can be properly guided about rebooking procedures.
As soon as the weather improves in Manila, domestic airlines can start mounting flights and resume regular operations, MIAA said.
“Priority will be given to scheduled flights arriving or departing from 11PM onwards (December 3),” MIAA added.
The GM reminded airline operators to be ready for recovery operations and to advise their handling agents to maximize deployment of people to service all requirements.
Daily maintenance closure of NAIA’s runway from 1:30AM to 3:30AM remains suspended to accommodate flights affected by the ten-hour closure.
