MANILA – Cebu Pacific cancelled one domestic flight to Cauayan, Isabela, on account of bad weather Wednesday, even as it apologized for the inconvenience caused by an average 45-minute delay in early morning flights.

Cancelled due to bad weather was 5J 196/197, Manila-Cauayan-Manila 5J- Cebu Pacific.

In a separate advisory, Cebu Pacific attributed the flight delays to a temporary slowdown in the production of its flight plans.

“Early morning flights were delayed by approximately 45 minutes as a consequence and this will also cause a domino effect for flights throughout the day,” said the leading low-cost carrier.

“We are currently putting measures in place to make up time and thus minimize delays to our schedule. Our airport personnel are on-hand to assist affected passengers. We sincerely this has caused, and appeal for patience and understanding,” said the airline.
