Manila Int'l Airport Shut Down After Volcanic Eruption|火山噴發馬尼拉機場關閉 桃機取消7航班

Manila's Ninoy Aquino International Airport has been temporarily shut down in the wake of the sudden eruption of Taal Volcano. Seven flights bound for Manila from Taoyuan International Airport were canceled on the morning of Jan. 13.

The shutdown of Manila International Airport following the sudden eruption of Taal Volcano forced the cancellation of four EVA Air flights on the 12th and seven Manila-bound EVA, China Airlines, Philippine Airlines, AirAsia and Cebu Pacific flights on the 13th.

I'm going to Manila. Because -- today my flight is canceled because the volcano eruption.

I actually worried, because my flight was supposed to depart yesterday, last night. Well, I might just stay here in the airport and wait for confirmation as to whether my flight will (fly).

Airlines sent out emails and texts notifying passengers of the change, but some travelers still went to the airport anyway to try their luck.

(Are you worried about...?) Oh, not really. Not much. Taal Volcano is an active volcano, really, so we know that it spews ash from time to time.

It remains unknown when the airport will reopen in Manila. Travelers headed to the Philippines are advised to check their flight status before leaving home.





旅客表示:「(你擔心嗎?) 還好,真的還好,因為塔爾火山是活火山,我們都知道它隨時都會噴發。」
