CAAP spokesperson Eric Apolonio said that they have already secured an uninterruptible power supply (UPS) unit and have finished its repairs. They have also hired the French firm Thales Group to provide third-party maintenance services.

As a reminder, the suspension of air traffic management system operations would impact several flights at the Ninoy Aquino International Airport (NAIA), Clark International Airport (CRK), and Mactan-Cebu International Airport (MCIA), as well as other commercially operated airports managed by CAAP (a total of 42).
