NAC: Airport will remain open

Emails and news circulation of airport terminals closing during the APEC Leaders’ summit in November is incorrect.

National Airports Corporation CEO and Managing Director Richard Yopo said statements being circulated is creating unnecessary worry for the public and aviation community.

The APEC CEO summit will take place between November 12th and 18th, with the leaders meet to be held between November 15th and 17th.

Commercial flights may be affected with delays between the 16th and 18th, but the National Airports Corporation, says terminals will not be closed to commercial flights.

In the past days, an email circulated from an identified security company has created anxiety among the travelling public, alluding to the closure of airport terminals, between November 9th and the 19th. 

CEO and Managing Director, Richard Yopo raised his concerns over the circulation of the email, saying it is fake news of the worst type creating unnecessary worry for the flying public and the aviation community.

He said NAC and the airlines have been working very hard to minimise flight disruptions during this period.

The terminals will not be closed to commercial flights during APEC and Domestic and International flights will continue to operate.
