How about for the cancellation of flights from the 28th of April until the 30th?

For this, a separate list was made by the airlines. You can find it in this list here. Cebu Pacific also said that the disruption in their flights was actually due to a few factors.

The reasons included: heavy traffic, repair and checkup of some aircraft that was damaged, and the prevention of flights landing and taking off on time. 

Cebu Pacific said that they had to decrease delays in the rolling and that they had to provide passengers the chance to achieve alternate travel plans.

To create space in our schedule for operational recovery, minimize rolling delays and give passengers the chance to make alternate travel plans, we have to temporarily reduce the number of our flights given the current operating conditions, particularly in our Manila hub.”

Is there a department investigating?

As of the moment, the Civil Aeronautics Board (CAB) is tasked to investigate and to look at the incident. They will be thoroughly checking on the legitimacy of this incident.

Was your flight cancelled? Are you part of the demographic who had their travel delayed? Don’t worry, Cebu Pacific is giving compensation and think that it’s for the better.
