Palexpress and Cebu Pacific operate daily flights to the said airport from Manila. Surigao flights will be diverted to Butuan Airport during the rehabilitation.       However, it is not only the flights to and from Surigao will have a problem but all flights including NAIA.  The Civil Authority of the Philippines (CAAP) on Monday announced the temporary shut down of one of the three major radars, the Tagaytay radar  will undergo maintenance and upgrade on March 6-11, and this will result to reduced flights during that period.

Passengers are advised to coordinate with airlines their flight schedules.  The airlines were given until this week to finalize their slots for March 6-11.
