MANILA (Updated 7:32 p.m.) -- Heavy rains due to a low pressure off Aurora province diverted 13 flights to the Diosdado Macapagal International Airport (DMIA) in Clark, Pampanga but four of them have returned to Manila.

In a radio report, Alexander Cauguiran, Clark International Airport Corp. (CIAC) executive vice president, said two international and 11 domestic flights were diverted due to poor visibility at the runway of the Ninoy Aquino International Airport (Naia).

Candice Iyog, vice president for marketing and distribution of leading budget airline Cebu Pacific (CEB), said the four flights have already returned Sunday afternoon.

“There were four CEB flights diverted due to bad weather in Manila: 5J 964 (Davao-Manila), 5J 888 (Cotabato-Manila), 5J 580 (Cebu-Manila) and 5J 786 (Butuan-Manila). They already arrived in Manila,” she told Sun.Star.

Aside from Cebu Pacific, other diverted flights include three from Air Philippines, two from Zest Air, two from Philippine Airlines, and one each from Singapore Airlines and SEAir.

Sun.Star tried to contact Manila International Airport Authority general manager Jose Angel Honrado for comment but to no avail. (Virgil Lopez/Sunnex)
