June 9, 2023, Pasay City - A power interruption occurred at the Ninoy Aquino International Airport (NAIA) Terminal 3 today which lasted for 37 minutes.
The MIAA, led by OIC Bryan Co immediately met with Meralco subsidiary, MServ, to be enlightened about the circumstances that brought about the situation. MServ was tapped to lead the full electrical audit of Terminal 3 as part of MIAA's improvement initiatives after the 01 May power interruption that affected the same terminal.
MServ was quick to identify that an oversight occurred when one of their personnel inadvertently left a testing cable attached to one of the electric equipment that caused the power interruption. Shortly after power went off, the MIAA generator sets kicked in causing minimal disruption in airport processes.
No flights were cancelled but a total of 7 flights were delayed due to the 37 minutes interruption.
The MIAA and the riding public were assured by the MServ technical team that what happened today is not equipment related but a procedural lapse on the part of the MServ personnel. MServ assured that the erring personnel will be dealt with accordingly. Meralco also immediately responded and assisted in the quick restoration of the power supply to NAIA Terminal 3.
In closing, MIAA OIC Bryan Co apologized to passengers for any inconvenience that the situation may have caused them.
