MANILA – Flag carrier Philippine Airlines (PAL) has canceled six flights between Manila and Japan scheduled for Tuesday due to Typhoon Lan (international name).

These flights are:
* PR 438/437 Manila-Nagoya-Manila
* PR 412/411 Manila-Osaka-Manila
* PR 407/408 Manila-Osaka-Manila

In an advisory on Monday, PAL said it will coordinate closely with concerned airport authorities in Japan and keep a close watch on weather forecasts in case the airline needs to make other adjustments.

Affected passengers may refund the ticket excluding ticketing service charge, or convert the ticket to travel credits equivalent to the unused base fare.

They can also reroute to another flight within 60 days from the original flight in the same booking class or higher within the same cabin class.

Typhoon Lan is reported to make a landfall over Honshu Island on Tuesday. Heavy rains and strong winds are expected.

As of 3 p.m. Monday, the Manila International Airport Authority confirmed that only two flights between Manila and Japan were canceled on the same day. These are Cebu Pacific flights 5J 828/827 Manila-Osaka-Manila. (PNA)
