Only 7 flights affected: MIAA downplays June 9 power glitch

The Manila International Airport Authority (MIAA) issued a public apology after a power outage occurred at the Ninoy Aquino International Airport (NAIA) on Friday, June 9.

MIAA officer-in-charge Bryan Co called for a press conference hours after the noontime blackout that disrupted plans of travelers heading out to enjoy the long Independence Day weekend.

Co played down the power glitch, sayig it was “brief” and the least disruptive relative to the January 1 and May 1 brownouts as only seven flights were affected and no flights had to be cancelled.

MIAA pinned the blame for the latest blackout to a procedural error.
