The country’s major airlines extended for a third day their free rebooking promo for passengers who missed their flights at the Ninoy Aquino International Airport (Naia) due to the flooding in Metro Manila and nearby provinces.
Philippine Airlines said its waiver on rebooking fees and charges for passengers was subject to the availability of the fare booking class. This waiver applies to all outbound and inbound Manila passengers to and from PAL domestic and international stations.
Cebu Pacific Air also said passengers who missed their flights to and from Naia or the Clark International Airport in Pampanga may also opt to travel on another day.
The airlines said missed flights Thursday may be rebooked, without charge, within 30 days. The value of the booking may also be placed in the airline’s travel fund for future redemption.
Air Philippines Express also waived rebooking charges for those who failed to make their flights at Naia and Clark Thursday. Rebooking is allowed on same fare and booking class, the carrier said.
The Manila International Airport Authority (Miaa), state operator of the Naia, advised travelers to keep in touch with their carriers via land line or their websites for further details and other queries.
Arrivals and departures at Naia were normal Thursday, according to the Miaa. The three airlines, however, reported “slight delays” due to rainy and windy conditions in the vicinity of the airport.
