Busy kaayo ang airport this afternoon kay sunod sunod ang arrival sa mga a/c. Una niabot ang PAL A319, then APX A320, Cebu pac A319, Cebu pac A320, APX A320, Cebu pac A320. Natingala ako lola nga pila ra ka minutes ilang gap, naa napod moabot. Very rare lang gyud ka makakita ug mga morning flights sa Cebu pac nga moagi diri sa city proper.

I took 2P CEB-BXU last tuesday. di maxado puno, d kaya di pa alam ng mga tao? Anyway, i like 2P more than 5J. FAs and the staff in the check in counter are very accommodating. And wa ko ka feel sa ka hago unlike in 5J. Hmm.. Im starting to consider 2P now in all of my domestic flights...

2P is more affordable din if you travel with check-in luggage kasi free na ang 15kgs.

BANCASI AIRPORT SCENE - around 2pm today.


image hosted on flickr


CAAP Butuan/Traffic Mgt Group/LTO must take action on public utility vans/multicabs/jeeps that has occupied most of the parking space... gihimo na ug terminal (not shown in the pics). There's a wide space next to the CAAP bldg that is empty, maybe that can utilized for them.

On the lighter side, a congestion like this would only mean Butuan is indeed a hub of the region. Busy. Busy Busy. I heard there were SIX flights today!

CEB continues to support govt plans to decongest NAIA

The Philippines’ largest national flag carrier, Cebu Pacific (PSE:CEB) acknowledges the recent delays to its flights mostly caused by air traffic congestion, and pledges continuous support to relevant government authorities to decongest the Ninoy Aquino International Airport runway.

It actively worked with the Civil Aviation Authority of the Philippines, the Civil Aeronautics Board and the Manila International Airport Authority for the appointment of an independent slot coordinator, who recently approved all airport slots for the March to October summer schedule, and will continue to coordinate airport slots using IATA guidelines.

Well-managed airport slotting (the specific time allotted an airline to land and take off) prevents congestion, and maximizes airport use and aircraft movements.

“The traveling public has been experiencing air traffic congestion in Manila, and both the government and airlines have been taking several proactive steps to minimize this. As the airline industry grows, it is very important to plan ahead to be at par with other international airports,” said CEB VP for Marketing and Distribution Candice Iyog.

“CEB remains consistent in pushing tourism for the benefit of the Philippine economy. We have to increase flights in order to meet the government’s tourism targets,” she added.

CEB, which saw its on-time performance go from an average of 88% in 2010 to 77% in 2011, also supports the following government plans:

The phased transfer of aviation schools and general aviation aircraft (corporate jets and small planes, for instance, carrying one passenger compared to hundreds on a commercial plane) since these use up to 17% of NAIA’s capacity annually. Transfer of these operations may be expedited further.
The upgrading of more airports outside Manila to allow night flights will decongest the NAIA runway and allow airlines to spread out their flights throughout the day. Caticlan, for instance, cannot host flights after sunset. The same with Naga, Legazpi, Dumaguete and Butuan, CEB said. This would allow passengers to choose their time of travel and not be limited to day flights.
The hiring of additional airport tower and aerodome personnel to complement night-rated airports, as well as setting up of additional Customs, Immigration and Quarantine services for airports outside Manila. This will allow airlines to base aircraft in, or operate international flights from airports outside Manila, further decongesting the NAIA runway.
The government plan to build additional rapid exit ways to allow landing aircraft to immediately leave the runways. This way, other aircraft can already utilize said runway as soon as possible.
“We hope our passengers understand that we continue working with the government to minimize these delays, and that this is one of Cebu Pacific’s main operational priorities. We remain active in all the capacity enhancements of Philippine airports, since we already have a substantial investment in the country’s aviation growth,” Iyog said.

CEB currently operates 10 Airbus A319, 20 Airbus A320 and 8 ATR-72 500 aircraft. Its fleet of 38 aircraft – with an average age of 3.6 years – is one of the most modern aircraft fleets in the world. Between 2012 and 2021, Cebu Pacific will take delivery of 22 more Airbus A320 and 30 Airbus A321neo aircraft orders.

Naa naman runway lights and night equipment sa BXU tawon since 2010 pa pero basin pud insufficient. Naa naman pod gani sa LGP Ang kulang lang sa airline companies is the will to operate during the night but I guess CEB was referring to the ILS which is still lacking here.

VFR is still good provided there is centreline and approach lights, however, there are constraints if there is terrain in the immediate vicinity . Even ILS will not work if terrain obstructs the glideslope beams. In most cases, the lights like Butuan is still useful for VFR say at dusk or the approach from the bay. If crosswinds permit, aircraft can land and take off on the shoreline side, never coming in from or taking off towards the terrain as it will only take a downdraft in split second to compromise the aircrafts altitude. Night operations is also expensive for CAAP to maintain because of power consumption by those high intensity lights so economics also plays its part. I suppose the landing fee at night will be higher.

Well explained litigs!

Oh well, kahit may pics ng Cebu Pacific taking off during night posted in previous pages, hindi parin capable for night operations ang airport.
