Philip­pine Air­lines and Cebu Pa­cific flights were can­celed yesterday morn­ing at Bacolod Si­lay Air­port due to an emer­gency sim­u­la­tion ex­er­cise by the Civil Avi­a­tion Au­thor­ity of the Philip­pines (CAAP).

There were also three flights re­port­edly de­layed due to the sit­u­a­tion.

Ac­cord­ing to CAAP-Bacolod Pub­lic In­for­ma­tion Of­fi­cer Ofe­lia Leonardo, the ex­er­cise could im­pact the CAAP safety grade with the In­ter­na­tional Civil Avi­a­tion Or­ga­ni­za­tion (ICAO), who eval­u­ated the ex­er­cise.

Due to safety con­cerns, Philip­pine-based air­lin­ers had been pre­vi­ously banned from fly­ing into the Euro­pean Union.

Leonardo noted, the re­sults should be avail­able in a few days, wherein they will learn about their per­for­mance and pos­si­ble ar­eas for im­prove­ment.
