The Philippine Airlines (PAL) has cancelled several flights on Saturday due to rains brought by tropical storm "Odette" and because of the closure of the Iloilo airport after an aircraft overshoot the runway.

In its Facebook post, the Manila International Airport Authority (MIAA) said PAL Express have cancelled flights 2P 2021/2022 Manila to Masbate to Manila and 2P 2084/2085 Manila to Basco to Manila due to bad weather.

Earlier today, PAL also cancelled several flights due to runway closure at the Iloilo airport following a Cebu Pacific aircraft accident Friday night.

The cancelled flights are:

PR 2139/2140 Manila/Iloilo/Manila
PR 2141/2142 Manila/Iloilo/Manila
PR 2143/2144 Manila/Iloilo/Manila
PR 2380/2381 Cebu/Iloilo/Cebu

The company said flights to and from Iloilo will resume once clearing operations are completed.

Meanwhile, PAL said it will be mounting replacement flights and ask for understanding from its passengers.
