CAAP: Flight operations were suspended during specific times on May 3, 17

The Philippine Air Traffic Management Center (ATMC) is set to undergo corrective maintenance on May 3 and May 17, the Civil Aviation Authority of the Philippines (CAAP) announced on Friday. As a result, there won’t be any flight operations in the nation during those times.

The scheduled events are set for May 3 from 2 to 4 a.m. and May 17 from 12 midnight to 6 a.m. Normal operations will resume as soon as maintenance work is complete, according to CAAP.

There won’t be any flights during maintenance windows, thus, it will be up to the airline companies to decide whether to cancel or postpone their booked flights, CAAP spokesperson Eric Apolonio further confirmed.

Recall that on January 1st, thousands of passengers and hundreds of flights were impacted by the chaos caused by an air traffic system glitch.

The automated voltage regulator (AVR), uninterruptible power supply (UPS), and upgrading the air traffic management system (ATMS) A/B power supply are all part of the maintenance activities scheduled for the following month, according to CAAP.

According to the CAAP advisory, “the ATMS power supply upgrade will involve the installation of a bypass panel to ensure seamless ATMS operation and the reconfiguration of the existing distribution panel to segregate ATM system A (voice) and ATM system B (data),” with the UPS and AVR acting as each other’s backup power supplies in case the other power supply experiences a problem.

The Communications, Navigations, Surveillance/Air Traffic Management (CNS/ATM) system, which controls and regulates air traffic within the Philippine Flight Information Region (FIR), is housed at the ATMC in Pasay City.

The 42 commercial airports managed by CAAP said the scheduled repair would mostly impact flights at the Ninoy Aquino International Airport (NAIA), Clark International Airport (CRK), and Mactan-Cebu International Airport (MCIA).

“The CAAP has already consulted and informed concerned parties, such as air carriers and airport operators Manila International Airport Authority, Luzon International Premiere Airport Development Corp., and GMR-Megawide Cebu Airport Corporation in advance regarding the intended corrective maintenance activity. To guarantee the successful completion of the urgent maintenance activity, mitigating measures and changes to the flight schedules have been addressed with stakeholders, according to the statement.
