MANILA (UPDATE) - Flights at the Ninoy Aquino International Airport (NAIA) have resumed operations on Monday after being suspended due to super typhoon Rolly, authorities said.

The country’s main gateway resumed its domestic and international flights at 10 a.m., the Manila International Airport Authority (MIAA) said, as Rolly headed out to the West Philippine Sea.

Airlines with scheduled flights on Monday will be given priority, MIAA general Ed Monreal told Teleradyo. Those affected by the temporary suspension will be given slots, which may cause minimal flight delays.

Monreal said almost 100 passengers were stranded in NAIA, but have been accommodated by their respective airlines.

Flights were canceled Sunday after Rolly ravaged through Bicol region and neighboring provinces in what has been the world's strongest typhoon so far this year.

The airports in Legazpi City, Masbate and Naga have also resumed operations as early as 6 a.m., Civil Aviation Authority of the Philippines (CAAP) spokesperson Erik Apolonio said.

Apolonio, however, said they had no information yet on the status of Virac airport as communication lines had been down since Sunday. CAAP said it would conduct an aerial survey on Monday.

“Awa naman po ng Diyos, ang pinakamalaking na-damage na airport natin ay ‘yung Naga lang, which is about estimate namin is mga P5.5 million. All other airports minimal lang po,” he told Teleradyo.

(By the mercy of God, the airport that was greatly damaged was the one in Naga, which is based on our estimate would cost about P5.5 million. All other airports only took minimal damage.)
