CAAP ready for passengers’ influx during Holy Week

Civil Aviation Authority of the Philippines (CAAP) started its implementation of “Oplan Semana Santa 2018” this week in anticipation of passenger increase as Filipinos fly home to their provinces for the approaching Semana Santa or Holy Week.
CAAP is expecting an eight percent increase in passenger influx for the Holy Week. On April last year, Philippine airports welcomed a total of 6,093,786 domestic and international passengers with 3,841,283 of these passengers arriving and departing through the NAIA.
Under the said operation plan, added security measures will be in place to ensure safe, reliable, and convenient operations at all 40 commercial airports in the country in the next two weeks.
Coordination has been made with airlines regarding the efficient processing of their passengers especially at the check-in counters. Additional airline personnel will be deployed as needed to accommodate the increase in travelers.
All 12 area managers handling the 37 CAAP-managed airports nationwide were also advised that maximum deployment of service and security personnel will be observed so a “no leave and day-off” policy will be implemented during the entire duration of Oplan Semana Santa.
The CAAP has also coordinated with the Office for Transport Security for baggage screenings and with the PNP-Aviation Security Group for perimeter security and surveillance.
Meanwhile, help desks manned by duty officers will also be set-up to accommodate passenger concerns. Travelers are also reminded not to bring prohibited items to the airport and to stow all belongings in one’s carry-on baggage for faster processing at the screening checkpoints.
