PBBM expresses regret for the New Year’s Day air traffic incident.
On Friday, President Ferdinand Marcos Jr. expressed regret for the air traffic management system malfunction that occurred on New Year’s Day at the Ninoy Aquino International Airport (NAIA), which resulted in several aircraft cancellations and affected around 56,000 passengers.
“I apologize. Of course, we should apologize to our fellow citizens, particularly those who immigrated from overseas. Limited is the available vacation. The number of days they had for vacation was restricted. Following an inspection at NAIA Terminal 3, Marcos stated, “They missed two or three days as a result of this.
He stated, “We are asking for your understanding and we will do everything to ensure that this does not happen again. Kaya kami’y humihingi ng inyong paumanhin at gagawin namin ang lahat nang hindi na maulit ito.”
In order to prevent a recurrence of the air traffic system chaos, Marcos carried out an eye examination at NAIA Terminal 3 and spoke with transportation officials about a number of preventative measures.
He listed the emergency purchase of two uninterruptible power supply units as one of the measures.
He said that a backup system would also be installed by the government.
Beyond that, we need a reliable backup system so that, in the event that the primary system fails, as it did on January 1, we have a working backup system available. Although it would take a little time, Marcos stated, “Yun lamang (However), we will strive to move as swiftly as possible on it.”
The President stated that impacted passengers have received assistance from the government.
They weren’t simply abandoned and left to fend for themselves, as stated in the statement, “Hindi naman sila basta pinabayaan na lang.” We made every effort to assist them, he said.
The Civil Aviation Authority of the Philippines (CAAP) mentioned technical issues that impacted roughly 300 flights during a press conference on Sunday.
In a statement released on Monday, the Department of Transportation stated that the incident that caused the system to lose power was caused by a fault with the electrical network, with the uninterruptible power supply that was supposed to be utilized as a backup power supply also failing.
