• CAAP lifts limits to Tacloban airport


    The Civil Aviation Authority of the Philippines (CAAP) lifted the notice to airmen at the Daniel Z. Romualdez airport in Tacloban City on Tuesday dawn, allowing all flights back to its normal operations. CAAP Deputy Director General Rodante Joya said that all commercial flights are now allowed on runway 18, which has a total length of 1,238 meters. The runway was rendered unserviceable on Saturday after a Bombadier jet carrying government officials skidded off it. Joya said the aircraft was removed from the site and is no longer obstructing the runway. The lifting means bigger aircrafts like Airbus A320 or Boeing B737 are now allowed to operate and accommodate stranded passengers.
