Flights recovering as PH Airports resume operations

Advisory No. 4

Flight operations are beginning to return to normal today, 02 January 2023, following the restoration of the Manila air traffic management system after aviation authorities successfully resolved the power outage problem that affected flights to, from and within the Philippines yesterday.


It will take some time to fully restore normal schedules as we reposition aircraft that had been held back or diverted to other airports and adjust flight timings based on revised clearances in coordination with the local authorities.
