MANILA, Philippines – At least 23 domestic flights at the Ninoy Aquino International Airport (NAIA), mostly to and from Bicol and the Visayas, were cancelled Saturday due to bad weather brought by Tropical Storm “Gorio”.

The Manila International Airport Authority, state operator of NAIA, said a total of 13 arrival and 10 departure flights were canceled at Terminals 2, 3 and 4 as of 5 p.m. Saturday.

Most of the aborted flights were Cebu Pacific trips to and from Legazpi City in Albay and Caticlan and Kalibo in Aklan.

Air Philippines Express and Zest Airways also cancelled flights to and from Tacloban City, Leyte; Calbayog City, Western Samar; and Catarman, Northern Samar.
