Flights from Hong Kong resumes this Friday
The Francisco C. Ada/Saipan International Airport will resume regular nighttime flights starting today, Tuesday, according to Commonwealth Ports Authority executive director Christopher S. Tenorio.
In an interview last night, Tenorio said that, although there are no flights scheduled for tonight, the airport is already ready to receive nighttime flights.
“We’re just waiting for the airlines to submit their flight schedule,” he said.
Despite this development, Tenorio wouldn’t say that everything is now okay because Super Typhoon Yutu caused so much havoc at the airport. “We’re trying to make it okay to make the flights come in,” he said.
CPA has already resumed regular daytime flights at the airport since last Thursday.
So far, United Airlines is the only commercial aircraft that comes in with passengers.
CPA said starting this Friday, Nov. 23, Hong Kong Express will resume flights from Hong Kong.
Starting Nov. 26 and Nov. 28 Sichuan Airlines will resume flights from Guangzhou and Shanghai, respectively.
Starting Nov. 27, Jeju Air will resume its daily flights from Seoul, while China Eastern will resume flights from China.
For the moment, the airport’s control tower has been moved to a mobile tower.
The commuter terminal remains inoperable.
