Cebu Pacific – A low cost airlines in the Philippines will suspend all flights to and from Caticlan (Boracay) effective 09-Jul-2009, until further notice, following changes to airport operating conditions declared by the Civil Aviation Authority of the Philippines (CAAP)

CAAP has designated Caticlan, for the time being, as a one-way airport for all carriers: takeoff should be towards the sea and landing in the opposite direction. A technical re-definition also in effect shortens the runway, despite its actual length.

CEB mounted as many as 15 round-trip flights daily to Caticlan until June 25. More than 60,000 booked passengers will be affected by the cancellation. Read the full story
