CAAP suspending all flights to Tacloban airport

The Civil Aviation Authority of the Philippines will suspend all flights to Tacloban airport starting on Wednesday because of potholes on the runway. Tacloban is the main airport gateway to Leyte province but pilots and airline operators are saying that the potholes, which are “fast developing,” will damage planes and make landings and take-offs unsafe for passengers and crew. According to one CAAP official, the runway will be repaired so that smaller turbo-prop aircraft will be able to resume within a week but it could be months before larger aircraft can use the runway. The entire runway will have to be refinished with five inches of asphalt before the larger commercial jets like Boeing B737 and Airbus A320 will resume flights.
