Flight changes on May 16, and 17 are being considered by AirAsia PH.

The budget airline AirAsia Philippines revealed on Thursday that it had proposed changes to some of its flights scheduled for May 16 and 17.

On May 17, the nation’s airspace will be shut down for six hours.

On May 17, from midnight to six in the morning, the Philippine Air Traffic Management Center will undergo corrective maintenance; however, once the work is done, regular operations will resume.

During that time, the air traffic management system will be upgraded, according to Civil Aviation Authority of the Philippines spokesperson Eric Apolonio during a public briefing on Thursday.

This task may be completed in around 4.5 hours, however, the CAAP allotted six hours to ensure that flights won’t be impacted in the event that problems arise.

In response, AirAsia reported that it had discussed with aviation regulators the idea of rescheduling 21 flights for May 16 and canceling six flights on May 17.

Flights to and from Taipei, Incheon, Bangkok, Kota Kinabalu, and Incheon, as well as flights to and from Cebu, Bacolod, Davao, Puerto Princesa, Cagayan, Iloilo, and Tacloban, are all possible candidates for rescheduling, according to the airline. Flights from Manila to Davao, Cebu, and Bacolod as well as their return flights that are covered during the repair time will be cancelled.

As soon as they receive approval from the slot distribution committee, according to AirAsia Philippines deputy spokesperson Carlo Carongoy, they would update the list.

“AirAsia has made sufficient measures to alert guests in advance of schedule changes through SMS and registered email. Through its social media pages and quad media partners, it also planned a significant information dissemination campaign, the airline said.

Apolonio, in the meantime, suggested that travelers get in touch with the airlines to inquire about any changes to their flight plans.

He also expressed regret to the public, stating that the maintenance work is intended to enhance the system and prevent the bug that occurred on January 1st.

Recall that hundreds of flights were then canceled, delayed, or diverted to other regional airports as a result of technical problems with the air traffic control system, which had an impact on thousands of passengers.
