THE Civil Aviation Authority of the Philippines (Caap) announced on Wednesday the 24-hour closure of the Tacloban City airport, affecting 19 flights.

In its Twitter account, CAAP advised the public on the issuance of Notice to Airmen (Notam) effective 5 a.m. Wednesday until 5 a.m. on Thursday due to the emergency repair of the airport's runway pavement.

The advisory added that Notam was already coordinated earlier with the airline operators.

The flights affected are three arrivals and departures from Airphil Express, six arrivals and departures from Air Asia Zest, four arrivals and departures from Tiger Airways and six arrivals and departures from Cebu Pacific.
