Several flights scheduled to depart Sunday were cancelled Saturday due to bad weather brought about by typhoon “Chedeng”, the Manila International Airport Authority (MIAA) said in an advisory.
MIAA said that among flights canceled for Sunday (April 5) include flights PR 2014 (Manila – Tuguegarao), PR 2015 (Tuguegarao – Manila), PR 2196 (Manila – Laoag), and PR 2197 (Laoag – Manila).
All flights belong to Philippine Airlines (PAL).
State-run weather bureau PAGASA earlier predicted stormy weather with rough to very rough seas in the regions of Cagayan Valley, Cordillera and the provinces of Aurora, Quezon and Catanduanes.
PAGASA meanwhile said that Metro Manila and the rest of the country will be partly cloudy to cloudy with isolated rainshowers or thunderstorms.
The public and the disaster risk reduction and management council concerned were also advised to take appropriate actions and watch for the next bulletin to be issued at 11 pm Saturday.
PAL has advised its affected passengers to rebook within 30 days from their original flight date. All rebooking charges are waived, provided tickets are within validity period.
The airline said that passengers may also opt to refund their tickets, without penalty.
