Flights Diverted from Manila Airport

Officials report that 17 flights were diverted from Manila Airport in the Philippines due to a glitch in the equipment of the air traffic control tower.  The diverted flights included five international flights: Asiana Airlines, China Southern Airlines, Thai Airways, Zest Airway, and Philippine Airlines.  The flights were diverted to cities in central Cebu and Iloilo as well as the formerly U.S.-run Clark Air Base, which lies north of Manila.


An advisory from the Manila International Airport Authority said that flights were diverted “due to air traffic facility problem,” but did not expand or elaborate on the problem.  Those officials who had the authorization to discuss the matter could not be reached.  Jen Franco, from the airport’s public affairs office, said the glitch was repaired just before noon and all of the diverted flights later made their way to Manila Airport.
