Manila flights recovering as Typhoon Karding ("Noru") exits the Philippines
26 September 2022 as of 3:45 AM
We are mobilizing to resume full operations at Manila airport, our main hub, as Typhoon KARDING (international name “NORU”) exits the land area of the Philippines and weather conditions improve slowly.
Flights to and from Manila will operate today, September 26 (Monday), except for those previously cancelled (see listing of cancelled flights below).
However, some flights may need to be delayed or adjusted. It will take some time to restore normal schedules even after the typhoon recedes and weather improves. We need to reposition aircraft that were held back or diverted to other airports, and adjust schedules based on revised slots and clearances at affected airports in coordination with aviation authorities.
PAL will keep a close watch on the weather situation at Metro Manila and the central and northern Philippines, as heavy rainfall may continue to affect certain areas. Our main concern is safety, and we may need to cancel or adjust flights if required for safety reasons related to weather conditions.
If you have a flight to or from Manila and other affected areas, we advise you to check the status of your journey by logging on to www.philippineairlines.com and click the “Flight Status” icon on the main page, and then fill in the flight number (without the “PR” or “2P” designation, just the number itself) and date of departure.
The flight’s status is updated in real time, and there is no need to call the contact center to verify the information. We encourage you to continue monitoring the status of your flight using the Flight Status self-service tool on our website so that we can keep our contact center hotlines free of congestion. You may also check further advisories on our Official PAL Facebook page.
