CAAP successfully completes corrective maintenance activity at the ATMC


The corrective maintenance activity at the Air Traffic Management (ATMC) had been successfully completed.

Civil Aviation Authority of the Philippines (CAAP) spokesman Eric Apolonio said the activity, scheduled from 2 a.m. to 4 a.m. of May 17, 2023, was accomplished in just over an hour from 2 a.m. to 3:13 a.m.

The work, according to Apolonio, did not affect the Philippine airspace as air traffic controllers reported no flight disruptions during the maintenance operation. CAAP promptly notified Manila Tower of the completion of the maintenance activity.

Personnel manning the Communications Navigation Surveillance Systems (CNSS) and Air Navigation Service (ANS) reported normal operations at the ATMC while continuous monitoring and fine tuning of the CNSS and ANS are being undertaken to ensure the unimpeded operations of airports throughout the country, he added.

Meanwhile, CAAP said in a statement that it extends its appreciation for the understanding and cooperation of various aviation stakeholders, highlighting the importance of seamless air traffic management in compliance to the highest standards of safety and efficiency.
