According to MIAA, the 360 flights were from 10 a.m. yesterday until 7 a.m today.
MIAA said a total of 516 flights were affected by the temporary suspension of NAIA operations on Monday, January 12, due to Taal’s volcanic activity.
Of that number, MIAA said 283 are arriving flights while 233 were departures.
