Cebu Pacific plane went "off the runway" at Davao airport

A Cebu Pacific Airbus A320 plane overshot the runway at the Davao International Airport as it landed during a rainstorm at around 7:15 p.m. on Sunday. SPO1 Frelyn Delfin, a passenger of Cebu Pacific Air flight 5J 971, said the plane already sounded differently before the rough landing.

"Parang nag-emergency landing nga po, hindi lang sinabi sa'min kasi ang bilis, wala pang 1 hour and 45 minutes nasa Davao na kami (from Manila)," Delfin said.

The police officer added that it took 30 minutes for the authorities to get all 165 passengers out of the plane using an inflatable slide. She also received information that it was not the captain but the first officer who was in control of the plane.

In a statement, Cebu Pacific Air said all 165 passengers were safe.

"Cebu Pacific Air flight 5J 971 (Manila-Davao) landed safely but veered off to the right side of the Davao International Airport runway during a heavy downpour. We sincerely apologize for the inconvenience this may have caused."

But SPO1 Delfin complained about Cebu Pacific's slow response to the mishap.

"Napakatagal po sir....Siguro malapit nang 2 oras bago may lumapit sa amin, hindi pa po may kataaasang posisyon," Delfin complained. - ABS-CBN news
