Cebu Pacific cancels more domestic flights Jan. 8-10

Cebu Pacific (CEB) on Friday announced the cancellation of more domestic flights from January 8 to 10.

The airline said this is due to “the move of the Civil Aviation Authority of the Philippines (CAAP) to limit the number of arrivals at the Ninoy Aquino International Airport (NAIA).”

When asked about this, CAAP spokesperson Eric Apolonio, told the Philippine News Agency (PNA) that they do not set arrival caps at the NAIA as such restrictions are imposed only by the Civil Aeronautics Board and the Manila International Airport Authority.

He, however, said a notice to airmen (NOTAM) was issued effective midnight of January 6 until midnight of January 10.

“This NOTAM reduces the hourly commercial flight arrival at the NAIA to 14 domestic and international flights,” he said.

As of 4:30 p.m. Friday, CEB said the following flights are canceled:
