MANILA, Philippines —The Civil Aviation Authority of the Philippines (Caap) said no systems hacking happened in Monday’s glitch at the Ninoy Aquino International Airport (Naia).

“Kung ito ay nagkaroon ng tinatawag na, sasabihin nating ano ito, may problema dun sa hacking or something na ganon, wala mangyayari dahil unang-una, dahil itong software lang ang naging issue,” Caap spokesperson Eric Apolonio explained during Tuesday’s Bagong Pilipinas Ngayon public briefing.

(If there was what they call, let us say, a problem or hacking or something like that, nothing like that happened because the software is the issue.)

Apolinio, however, admitted that the air traffic monitoring system needs an upgrade since it has been in use since 2010.

Naia’s Air Traffic Monitoring Center (ATMC) suffered a software issue, causing flight delays, on May 20.

Caap said in a statement Monday that during its regular monitoring, it identified “a potential problem with the software” of ATMC.

“To ensure the safety of the flying public, Caap decided to be conservative and manage the operations by providing longer separation of departing flights,” it added.

The software glitch delayed or canceled flights and affected around 9,000 travelers.

This is not the first time that the country’s main gateway suffered problems that caused travel disruptions.

A 2023 New Year’s Day power outage shut down Naia as it caused the navigation system to go offline. The incident prompted investigations by lawmakers from both the Senate and House of Representatives.
