MANILA, Philippines — It may take up to 72 hours for airline operations to normalize following a supposed power outage at Manila’s Air Traffic Management Center that took the country’s airspace offline on New Year’s Day, affecting over 56,000 passengers.


Manila International Airport Authority General Manager Cesar Chiong gave this estimate on ABS-CBN News Channel’s “Rundown” on Monday based on their experience from the last typhoon that affected airport operations.


Chiong added that full operations at the Ninoy Aquino International Airport, which is the country’s busiest gateway, have not yet resumed as it is only accepting 15 arrivals per hour, compared to 20 arrivals per hour before the catastrophic outage on Sunday.
