PAL advises Cebu passengers to check in earlier on Sept.20-26
MANILA -- Philippine Airlines is advising passengers using the Mactan Cebu International Airport (MCIA) to head there earlier to avoid traffic on Sept. 20-26, as the bridge on the way would be closed for repair at that time.

In a social media post, PAL spokesperson Cielo Villaluna said the Marcelo Fernan Bridge is currently being rehabilitated. Thus, passengers need to allow ample time to head to the airport so they could make it to their flights.

There will be partial closure in the Marcelo Fernan Bridge, she said, adding the bridge would be totally closed from 10 p.m. to 6 a.m. from Sept. 20 to Sept. 26.

"Slow moving traffic should be expected," she said.

Meanwhile, in an advisory, PAL said passengers going to Barangay Mactan can make a right turn to Barangay Pusok, and do a U-turn near the city`s abattoir located at Sitio Semento.

Light vehicles may also opt to use the Mactan-Mandaue Bridge, the flag-carrier added. (PNA)
