MANILA—The Civil Authority of the Philippines (CAAP) on Monday said it will temporarily shut down the Tagaytay radar on March 6-11, and this will result to reduced flights during that period.

Tagaytay radar is among the radars used by the Ninoy Aquino International Airport (NAIA). It will be shut down for maintenance and upgrade.

During this period, CAAP said the number of flights per hour will be reduced. Passengers are advised to coordinate with airlines their flight schedules.

The government said airlines were given until this week to finalize their slots for March 6-11.

Meanwhile, two radars will remain operational during the maintenance and upgrading of Tagaytay radar.

The upgrading will also include the Tagaytay radar in a new system called the Communications, Navigation, Surveillance / Air Traffic Management (CNS/ATM), a system to make the air traffic flow better and more efficient.
