MANILA, Jan. 16 — Three domestic flights have been cancelled Thursday afternoon due to different compelling reasons.

The airport's flight information service said Philippine Airlines Express (PALex) flights 2P-033 Manila to Busuanga, and 2P-034 Busuanga to Manila were called off due to “sunset limitation” or the airport in Palawan has no enough lights for night flights.

The flight to Busuanga was scheduled to leave at 3:20 p.m., and arrive back Manila 5:30 p.m.

Cebu Pacific Air flight 5J-392 was grounded after the aircraft experienced mechanical trouble while in Cagayan de Oro City.

The flight was bound to Manila with an estimated time of arrival of 4:55 p.m. (PNA)
