The ongoing conflict and the subsequent flight prohibition in Zamboanga City mean that Philippine Airlines (PAL) is losing approximately P6M a day in revenue. The losses break down to between P4 and P5 million per day, with another 10 percent per day added to that for cargo.
PAL and PAL Express have so far canceled approximately seven round-trip flights every day since commercial operations at Zamboanga International Airport were suspended September 9 by the Civil Aviation Authority of the Philippines.
Officials for Cebu Pacific, another airline operating out of Zambo, said around 3,000 passengers were affected on September 9 and 10.
Of the 24 flights canceled on Tuesday, 14 of them were Cebu Pacific or PAL Express flights.
