Check Out This Full List Of Flight Cancellations From March 6-11

4 min. read By eCompareMo on

If you’re flying sometime between March 6 and 11, 2017, we’ve got some important news for you.

A few days ago, the Department of Transportation (DOT) announced the scheduled maintenance and upgrade of one of the radars used by the Ninoy Aquino International Airport (NAIA). The Tagaytay radar, which services the country’s main international gateway, will be shut down from March 6 to 11 of this year as it undergoes servicing.

The Civil Aviation Authority of the Philippines (CAAP) announced that the temporary shutdown of the Tagaytay monopulse secondary surveillance radar will allow better and more accurate servicing of civilian aircraft through world-class air traffic control.

The radar station will be included in the Communications, Navigation, Surveillance/Air Traffic Management (CNS/ATM), the new global standard in air traffic control that uses satellite systems and automation to minimize flight risks.

Because of this, flights going in and out of NAIA will be reduced, prompting airliners to cancel some of their flights. According to Rappler, some of the airliners affected are Philippine Airlines, Cebu Pacific, and Cebgo.

To know if your flights for the mentioned dates are affected, check out the full list of cancelled flights below:
