#UlyssesPH: NAIA temporarily closes for all flight ops

Aviation Updates Philippines – The Manila International Airport Authority (MIAA) announced tonight the suspension of all flight operations at the Ninoy Aquino International Airport beginning 12:00 AM until 6:00 AM on Thursday, November 12, 2020.

The decision was made in consultation with the Airline Operators Council (AOC), the Air Carriers Association of the Philippines (ACAP), PAGASA NAIA station, and the Civil Aviation Authority of the Philippines (CAAP) Director General Jim Sydiongco.

"Similar typhoon forecasts presented by PAG-ASA-NAIA and the airlines revealed that the typhoon will be strongly felt in Manila by 2 AM bringing strong winds that would endanger flight movements. Typhoon Ulysses is expected to weaken as the day progress tomorrow, Thursday," the MIAA said.

In view of the closure, MIAA General Manager Eddie Monreal advised passengers to check with their respective airlines before proceeding to the airport. Moreover, Monreal told airlines to ready their customer service hotlines to anticipate the surge of calls from passengers.

Meanwhile, airlines and the MIAA have implemented preemptive measures to ensure ground equipment safety as the typhoon nears. AirAsia has evacuated some of its aircraft out of Manila and Clark, while Cebu Pacific and Philippine Airlines ballasted their planes.

As of the moment, PAL has announced the cancellation of 17 international and domestic flights. AirAsia also adjusted the flight schedules of some of its flights from Manila. On the other hand, Cebu Pacific has not released a typhoon advisory as of the time being.
