AS Legaspi airport resumed operations on Wednesday, a Philippine Air Force plane landed at the airport following the arrival of two commercial flights from Manila.

This, as engineers from the Civil Aviation Authority of the Philippines (Caap) conducted inspections of the runway and related facilities.

Legaspi control tower officials informed the Caap that the airport’s Runway Threshold Identification Light remains out of operation.

Because of this, Legaspi air- traffic control officials announced that flights would be allowed only based on visual meteorological conditions. Meanwhile, Masbate Airport is now back in operation, and it accommodated the arrival of Cebgo flight DG6177 from Manila, and the departure of the same Cebgo flight back to Manila early Wednesday morning.

Catarman National Airport is now open and was able to accommodate a PAL Express flight carrying 69 incoming passengers, which arrived at 8:02 a.m. and departed at 8:47 a.m. carrying 68 outgoing passengers.

As of 10:30 a.m. Wednesday, Busuanga Airport in Palawan, has resumed normal operations, welcoming six arriving flights from Manila and Cebu.
