Anyare ba? VM Joe Espinosa probes CebPac overshoot at Iloilo airport


It was a big hassle to the province so politikos are getting involved.

Acting Mayor Jose Espinosa III has called for a meeting with officials of Cebu Pacific airline and the Civil Aviation Authority of the Philippines (CAAP) to explain the Oct. 13 incident at the Iloilo International Airport, where a passenger plane went beyond the runway upon landing.

The politiko was a curious cat, so he wanted answers straight from the officials to explain the incident and at the same time ask them how the city government can help in addressing the situation.

“We want to ensure that incidents like this won’t happen again and that the public will feel safe in riding the airplane,” Espinosa told the officials who were summoned to the Iloilo City Hall.

It took three days before the plane was removed from the runway.
