PAL 'closely monitoring' Typhoon Rolly

Aviation Updates Philippines – In a Typhoon Advisory on Friday, national flag carrier Philippine Airlines said it is 'closely monitoring' developments regarding the fast-approaching Typhoon Rolly (International: Goni) in the Philippine Area of Responsibility.

"We are closely monitoring the track of Typhoon 'Rolly' (international codename: Goni), which is expected to intensify as it approaches the Luzon area of the Philippines by Sunday November 1," PAL said.

PAL also warned it might have to cancel flights as necessary for "urgent safety reasons" amid the Typhoon's threat. There may be affected flights, possibly canceled or adjusted schedule, for those flying on November 1 and 2.

Passengers are advised to check their flight statuses prior to proceeding to the airport on the said dates. Guests are also encouraged to continuously check the airline's social media pages and website at www.philippineairlines.com.

The airline added: "We will keep you informed on developments, as we carry out measures to secure our aircraft and ground equipment in Manila and in Clark."

According to the United States Navy – United States Air Force Joint Typhoon Warning Center (US JTWC), Typhoon Rolly may potentially intensify into a super-typhoon even before it makes landfall in the Philippine islands on Sunday. The weather bureau categorizes weather disturbances with sustained winds of at least 130 knots as super-typhoons.
