Chinese Trips to Philippines Soar—But Will ‘World’s Worst Airport’ Halt the Climb?
The Philippines is a popular destination for Chinese tourists, and the country is experiencing rapid growth amid improvements to its main international airport in Manila. But could the recent crash landing of XiamenAir flight MF8667, and organizational issues at the airport, halt China becoming the Philippines’ top market? The XiamenAir flight, caught in heavy rain, veered off the runway at Ninoy Aquino International Airport (NAIA) upon arrival in Manila just before midnight on August 16. No serious injuries were reported but the main runway was closed for nearly two days, cancelling about 200 flights. Photos from the scene showed that the engine on the left side of the plane had separated from the wing. LOOK: Parts of the Xiamen Air aircraft lie in pieces at Manila’s Ninoy Aquino International Airport. All passengers and crew are reported safe, but one of the plane’s engines had broken off during the landing #tictocnews pic.twitter.com/iCWv4PnQcY ... read more
