No affected flights on Mayon volcano eruption in Bicol Airport

The Civil Aviation Authority of the Philippines issued a Notice to Airmen (NOTAM) due to the increasing unrest of Mayon Volcano.

With Mayon Volcano now on Alert Level 2, flights have been prohibited to operate to operate 10,000 feet from the surface and advised to avoid flying close to the volcano’s summit as ash from the sudden phreatic eruption can be hazardous to aircraft.

According to Cynthia Tumanut, the Area Manager of Center 5, continuous monitoring is being conducted as Mayon Volcano exhibits abnormal activity.

No ashfall was detected on the runway at Bicol International Airport, but stringent inspections are being conducted to check for possible ash fall and other contaminants.
