Tagaytay’s radar maintenance triggers Australia’s travel advice to nationals
Australia’s government has advised its nationals to check their flights to and from the Philippines especially between March 6 and 11.
The travel advice update on the Philippines stemmed from the temporary shutdown of the Civil Aviation Authority of the Philippines’ Tagaytay radar.
“Many international and domestic flights through Manila’s Ninoy Aquino International Airport (NAIA) with Philippine Airlines and Cebu Pacific have been cancelled or re-scheduled due to airport maintenance between 6-11 March 2017. Contact your airline or tour operator for information on possible disruptions,” it said.
It was referring to the CAAP’s plan to temporarily shut down the Tagaytay radar, effectively reducing the number of flights in and out of NAIA.
CAAP’s Tagaytay radar is one of the navigational facilities used by NAIA. It is to undergo maintenance and upgrade.
Australia noted Philippine carriers Philippine Airlines and Cebu Pacific have canceled or rescheduled several flights due to this.
