The devastating impact of Typhoon “Egay” continues to be felt as it paralyzes operations at twenty-five (25) airports under the jurisdiction of the Civil Aviation Authority of the Philippines (CAAP) in Luzon.

According to CAAP Spokesman Eric Apolonio, the main office in Pasay City has been receiving reports on the current ground situation at the airports in Northern Luzon.

Among the affected airports, Laoag International Airport had to suspend its flight operations temporarily due to adverse weather conditions.

However, it is expected to reopen once the weather permits. In the meantime, the international pre-departure area is temporarily replacing the domestic one, as the latter requires repairs due to partial damage to its ceiling and doors, as reported by CAAP Area Center 1 Manager Ronald Estabillo.

Vigan Airport suffered minimal damage to its facilities, while Lingayen Airport’s ramp was flooded due to heavy rainfall. Additionally, part of the airport’s fire station roof sustained damage from strong winds.

At Tuguegarao Airport, flight operations for the day had to be suspended due to a power outage. Fortunately, no major damage was reported at the airport’s taxiway, except for minor flooding.

On a positive note, Basco Airport, Cauayan Airport, and Palanan Airport were fortunate enough to escape any damage, and their commercial electricity supply remained intact.

However, the impact was felt for passengers as a Cebgo flight bound for Manila from San Jose Airport had to be canceled, affecting 155 travelers. Meanwhile, Iba Airport experienced strong winds and rain but reported no significant damage.

Thankfully, Baguio Airport, Rosales Airport, and San Fernando Tower Facility were among the fortunate ones, remaining intact despite the typhoon’s onslaught.

Meanwhile, the CAAP also released a list of canceled flights as of 11 a.m. Wednesday:
