Meanwhile, some PAL flights were re-timed to arrive on Saturday afternoon. These are PR685 (Doha-Qatar), PR655 (Riyadh-Manila), PR659 (Dubai-Manila) and

PR683 (Dammam-Manila).

Earlier, the MIAA announced that airport operations will be closed if Typhoon Ompong would affect the country’s main gateway. BENJIE L. VERGARA
