Cebu Pacific said it canceled more flights after the Civil Aviation Authority of the Philippines (CAAP) limited arrivals at the Ninoy Aquino International Airport (NAIA).  

In a travel advisory on Friday, the budget carrier also said it is working with regulators and stakeholders to manage the impact of coronavirus disease 2019 (COVID-19) on its workforce.  

“Cebu Pacific also continues to review its manpower levels with employees currently on quarantine,” the company said.  

The cancelled flights originally scheduled on Jan. 8 to 10 include those from Manila to Kalibo, Legazpi, Tacloban, Boracay (Caticlan), Iloilo, Butuan, Cagayan de Oro, Cotabato, Davao, Cebu, Bohol (Tagbiliran), Cauayan, Puerto Princesa, Iloilo, Coron (Busuanga), Dipolog, and Legazpi.   

“As the situation remains fluid, additional flight cancellations may take place in the coming days, and so we appeal for your patience and understanding,” Cebu Pacific said.  

In a separate advisory, Cebu Pacific said it is also reducing its flights between Manila and Bacolod to once daily or 7 times a week from 16 times weekly. It canceled flights to and from Bacolod scheduled on Jan. 9 to 15.  

Cebu Pacific said the Negros Occidental local government issued an order to limit the flights to and from the National Capital Region amid a spike in COVID-19 cases. — Keren Concepcion G. Valmonte
