Para ‘di maiwan: Passengers told to be at airport 4 hours early during ASEAN holidays
Passengers leaving the country must be at airports four hours ahead of their departure schedule during the duration of the country’s hosting of the 31st Association of Southeast Asian (ASEAN) Summit.
“We highly encourage the general public to adjust their travel time considering that there are lockdown areas in some parts of Metro Manila,” said Civil Aviation Authority of the Philippines (CAAP) Eric Apolinario.
He reminded the public of the “no landing zone” from November 12 to 15 at the NAIA Runway 12 between 6 a.m. and 5 p.m.
Only departure will be allowed on the said runway, while Runway 13 will be declared “no take-off zone” on the same dates.
Malacañang earlier announced Nov. 13-15 as special non-working days in NCR, Bulacan and Pampanga to give way to activities related to the annual summit.
Leaders from powerful countries all over the world will be coming to the country to discuss regional issues and other matters concerning ASEAN member states and its dialogue partners.
Among them are US President Donald Trump, Japanese Prime Minister Shinzo Abe, European Council President Donald Tusk, Canadian Prime Minister Justin Trudeau and Australian Prime Minister Malcolm Turnbull.
