CRK preps up for impending radar shutdown in Tagaytay

The Clark International Airport Corporation (CIAC) have ironed out contingency plans for the possible diversion of flights at the Clark International Airport (CRK) from March 6 to 11 due to the temporary shutdown of the Tagaytay radar for upgrading and maintenance.

The CIAC management met with the Airline Operators’ Council Manila (AOC-MNL) on Tuesday. It said the Clark airport is prepared in the event that some flights from the Ninoy Aquino International Airport (NAIA) will divert to CRK next week.

The AOC-MNL is composed of airport managers of all airlines flying at NAIA.

CIAC said the Clark airport is ready should there be flight diversions. The airport has aircraft parking slots, hotel accommodations, transportation services, and emergency and technical services.

Although two radars will remain operational during the maintenance of the Tagaytay radar, the latter’s temporary shutdown will result in a reduction of flights at the Ninoy Aquino International Airport (NAIA).

Hilarion Ritche Nacpil, CRK Terminal Operations manager, said the airport can accommodate at least 33 aircraft during the day and 26 aircraft at night.

The upgrading will include a new technology called the Communications, Navigation, Surveillance / Air Traffic Management (CNS/ATM), a system that ensures safer and more efficient air traffic flow.
