As of Thursday night more than 3,000 passengers have been deplaned at CRK.

Affected airline companies have diverted their flights at CRK and provided passengers bus shuttles to transport them to Manila.

Xiamen’s 157 passengers and crew are safe, reports added.

In an earlier interview, MIAA General Manager Ed Monreal said the incident stemmed due to a โ€œmisapproach,” thus the plane attempted to land twice.

Monreal furthered that during Xiamenโ€™s second try, the plane lost contact with the NAIA airport tower.

Meantime, passengers at the NAIA are jampacked and were stranded inside the airport.
