Philippine Airlines Landing At NAIA

Philippine Airlines reported last Thursday, August 26, 2010 that about 558 people from Hong Kong and China have cancelled their bookings to Manila. This is due the recent hostage crisis which happened last august 23, 2010. According to PAL president Jaime Bautista,

“PAL is beginning to feel the initial impact of a Hong Kong government advisory warning its residents to refrain from all travel to the Philippines.” The cancellations came from Hong Kong, Beijing, Xiamen and other Chinese cities. Bautista added, “We’re closely monitoring the situation and will decide soon whether we will maintain or reduce flights. We are optimistic that fears of travelling to the Philippines will be temporary.”
