DOTr on Cebu Pacific Issue

This is regarding to a video posted on Facebook showing passengers of Cebu Pacific Flight 5J 575 bound for Cebu in panic.

Babies are crying,old people are complaining and there's a woman got suffocated and now she has oxygen on because she can't breathe. Passengers have been here for more than an hour inside the plane and forcing airline personnel to let them deplane from the aircraft.

Please be informed that the Department of Transportation (DOTr), through its Undersecretary for Aviation Capt. Manuel Antonio Tamayo,has already instructed the Civil Aeronautics Board (CAB) to look into this and act accordingly.

In a statement, Atty. Wyrlou Samodio,Chief Legal Officer of CAB,has directed Cebu Pacific to investigate the matter thoroughly and submit an incident report within one (1) hour from notice.

Should DOTr-CAB find out that Cebu Pacific Flight 5J 575 went beyond the prescribed 2-hour period to deplane its passengers due to long tarmac delays,Cebu Pacific shall be held liable for the penalty prescribed under the regulation. Further, if found to have violated the regulation,the pilot shall likewise be held liable as he has the obligation to order the deplaning.CAB shall indorse the case of the pilot to CAAP for appropriate action, since the latter exercises jurisdiction over airmen.

Rest assured that DOTr-CAB will objectively monitor this incident and shall update the public of any development.
