Manila NAIA: Radar down
At 2:45 PM yesterday the Civil Aviation Authority of the Philippines (CAAP) issued a NOTAM, a notice to airmen.
NAIA General Manager Alfonso Cusi said:”The tower cannot communicate with the radar and they cannot guide the airlines to land and depart – so it is a safety issue”. The assistant general manager for operations of NAIA 1, blamed the incident to the “wear and tear” of the equipment.
The problem was declared fixed as of 4:32 PM on Sunday afternoon.
But the interruption of radar communication created big problems because all airlines had to reorganize their flight schedules and their flight plans. 12 flights had been canceled and some delays and re-routings are to be expected Monday morning.
