PAL cancels AM flights due to ‘Basyang’

A total of 38 PAL flights scheduled for this morning have been cancelled because PAL's airplanes have either been evacuated or held at various provincial and overseas airports last night to avoid strong winds spawned by typhoon Basyang.

Passengers taking PAL's early morning flights are advised not to proceed to NAIA Terminal 2 to avoid congestion at the airport. PAL will be issuing advisories on the resumption of service pending the return of PAL planes back in Manila.

Cancelled are 16 round trip and three one-way domestic flights. A flight to Hong Kong (PR300/301) set this morning is also cancelled.

The cancelled domestic flights are those bound for – Davao (4 flights), Cebu (2), Bacolod (2), Cagayan de Oro (2), Iloilo (2), Tagbilaran (2), Tacloban (2), Zamboanga (1), Legazpi (1), General Santos (1) and Puerto Princesa (1).

PAL flights coming from the US will be arriving according to schedule.

Last night, PAL evacuated three aircraft to Davao and Iloilo and held 14 others at seven domestic and three international points.

Yesterday morning, PAL diverted six flights – including two international arrivals – to Clark and one flight to Iloilo due to poor visibility at the NAIA. The diverted flights were able to land at the NAIA when weather at the airport slightly improved in the afternoon.
