4 domestic flights cancelled due to tropical depression


Tropical depression “Agaton” caused the grounding of at least four domestic flights on Saturday, the Department of Transportation and Communications (DOTC) said.

As of 9 a.m., the DOTC said the affected flights were Philippine Airlines Express (PALex) flight 2P-967/968 Manila-Butuan-Manila, and Cebu Pacific Air (CEB) flight 5J-785/786 also having the Manila-Butuan-Manila routes.

“Agaton” was spotted northeast of Hinatuan, Surigao del Sur early Saturday and bringing moderate to heavy rains in the eastern section of the country.

Last Friday, the airport’s Media Affairs Division said a total of 18 domestic flights were cancelled due to bad weather brought about by “Agaton.” PNA
