Paeng Advisory No. 3 
29 October 2022 as of 06:30 PM


Manila Airport closed temporarily as Tropical Storm Paeng ("Nalgae") approaches 


To protect the safety of the traveling public, the aviation authorities have temporarily closed down Manila’s Ninoy Aquino International Airport (NAIA – “MNL”) until 6 PM today, on account of weather conditions caused by the passage of Tropical Storm PAENG (international name “NALGAE”).


Accordingly, we are putting on hold all departures from Manila, and all departures from other airports, until after 6 PM.  Several flights en route to Manila are being diverted to land in other airports until the Manila airport reopens.


We will provide more details once finalized. It is possible that the closure time may be extended beyond 6 PM, and if so we will make the necessary urgent adjustments to our flights to and from Manila, which may include cancellations or delays.


In the meantime, we have CANCELLED the following flights:

We will continue to cooperate closely with the aviation and airport authorities and keep a close watch on hour-by-hour weather forecasts for affected airports in the Philippines.


Our paramount concern is the safety of our passengers, personnel and aircraft at all times, and we will make the necessary adjustments to ensure safe travels and comply with any safety-related restrictions.    


If you are traveling on a flight to/from Metro Manila, Clark or one of the affected areas on October 29 or 30, we recommend that you check the status of your flight before proceeding to the airport.  Please visit 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 to check the latest update. 


IMPORTANT REMINDER: A flight’s status is updated in real-time, and there is no need to call the PAL 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.


Thank you for your kind understanding and cooperation.
