8 Naia flights to Legazpi, Tuguegarao canceled due to bad weather


MANILA, Philippines—Bad weather caused by the cold front prevailing in Northern Luzon and the intertropical convergence zone prevailing in the central part of the country led to the cancellation of up to eight flights at the Ninoy Aquino International Airport on Thursday.

The latest to be canceled was Cebu Pacific flight 5J-325 to Legazpi, which was supposed to depart NAIA Terminal 3 at 3 p.m. Consequently, its return trip, 5J-326, set to arrive at 5:30 p.m., was also canceled.
