MANILA, Philippines – Strong rains in South Korea forced Philippine Airlines to cancel two flights bound for Incheon on Monday morning.

PAL Spokesperson Cielo Villaluna said the following flights were cancelled:

  • PR 464 – Manila to Incheon (ETD – 6:55 a.m.)
  • PR 465 – Incheon to Manila (ETA – 4:10 p.m.)

The heavy rains being experienced over South Korea were due to typhoon Sanba (locally codenamed Karen), which left the Philippine Area of Responsibility (PAR) on Sunday.

The typhoon also brought rains over Taiwan and southern Japan. – with a report from dzMM
