Typhoon Ompong is expected to make landfall in Cagayan on Saturday morning and exit the Philippine area of responsibility by Sunday, state weather bureau PAGASA earlier said.

"Affected passengers are strongly advised not to proceed to the airport," Cebu Pacific said.

Cebu Pacific, PAL, and SkyJet said affected passengers may either rebook or refund their tickets.
