MANILA, Feb. 22 – Seven more flights bound for Ninoy Aquino International Airport (NAIA) were diverted on Friday to Clark in Pampanga and in Cebu “due to zero visibility” brought by heavy northeast monsoon rains affecting Metro Manila and Southern Luzon.

According to the Manila International Airport Authority (MIAA), Korean Airlines flight KE 621 from Inchoen has been diverted to Clark International Airport along with Cebu Pacific flight 5J 109 from Hongkong.

Four domestic flights have been diverted also to Clark including two Cebu Pacific flights 5Js 562 and 564 from Cebu.

Earlier, MIAA announced that China Airlines flight CI 711 from Kaohsiung, Cathay Pacific Airways flight CX 907 from Hongkong and Jetstar Asia flight 3K 761 from Singapore were diverted to Clark.

The bad weather also forced Cebu Pacific and other local airlines to cancel 22 domestic flights.

Zest Air and Skyjet also cancelled round-trip flights to Busguanga. (PNA)
