Caap: airport operations ‘already back to normal’

/ 05:20 AM January 04, 2023

The Civil Aviation Authority of the Philippines (Caap) on Tuesday said airport operations in the country are “already back to normal.”

“All [equipment are] working and our skies are covered by our radar and communication [systems],” Capt. Edgardo Diaz, Caap deputy director general, said in a press briefing.

He said backup or redundancy machines are being checked to prevent a repeat of the Jan. 1 shutdown of Ninoy Aquino International Airport (Naia).

In an interview with CNN Philippines, Bryan Co, senior assistant general manager of the Manila International Airport Authority (MIAA), said passenger flow on Monday was “very manageable.”

“We operated around 755 flights and had around 133,000 passengers that went through [all four] Naia terminals. This is the same number of average flights that MIAA operated in the past 30 days,” he said.

“We’re projecting [that by Jan. 4], we should be able to mount our full regular schedule already,” said Co.

“It’s not necessarily that all 414 [canceled flights] will be remounted or there will be additional 414 flights. The other passengers were redistributed to other flights,” he said. INQ
