Manila International Airport had to divert 17 flights on Tuesday due to air traffic control issue.
‘Planes diverted Tuesday from Manila include five international flights of Asiana Airlines, Thai Airways, China Southern Airlines, Philippine Airlines and Zest Airway from South Korea, Thailand and China.
The flights were diverted to airports at the former U.S.-run Clark Air Base north of Manila, and in central Cebu and Iloilo cities.’
The Manila International Airport Authority said the planes were diverted “due to air traffic facility problem”, but did not elaborate on the exact nature of the issue.
The glitch was fixed shortly before noon and the 18 diverted flights later flew to Manila.
