The Civil Aviation Authority of the Philippines (CAAP) has extended its services and operating hours to assist stranded passengers and flight diversions caused by Tropical Storm 'Paeng.'

Airports in Masbate, Tacloban, Laguindingan, and Zamboanga provided stranded passengers with assistance kits and allowed them to take shelter in the airport terminal during the typhoon and while waiting for their flights.

Apart from assisting passengers, CAAP-operated airports in Puerto Princesa, Bohol-Panglao, Laguindingan, and Davao also facilitated and received several diverted international and domestic flights from Manila yesterday, October 29.

"Despite the storm's damage to our kababayans, we commend the coordination and initiative of our provincial airports and staff, who willingly offered assistance during the storm's peak. Together, we hope to recover from the devastation caused by Paeng." said CAAP Acting Director General Captain Manuel Antonio Tamayo.

As 'Paeng' moves northwestward, CAAP-operated airports will now focus on assisting remaining stranded passengers and diverted flights, as well as clearing the airports as they resume normal operations and schedules.
