Cebu Pacific flight from Dubai to Manila cancelled due to ‘technical issue’

Affected passengers will be stranded in Dubai for 24 hours

Passengers on a Cebu Pacific flight from Dubai to Manila are dealing with an unexpected layover after the flight was cancelled due to an unspecified “technical issue”.

Flight 5J015 was scheduled to depart Dubai at 11.10pm on Tuesday. However, the flight was cancelled due to a “technical issue detected prior to flying”, the airline said in a statement.

Passengers will be accommodated on the next available flight to Manila which is scheduled to depart Dubai at 11.10pm on Wednesday.

“We will be providing affected passengers with meals, a one-way travel voucher, other necessities, and hotel accommodation, subject to visa policies of the United Arab Emirates,” Cebu Pacific said.

Passengers who did not meet the visa requirements would be given access to the airport lounge.

“We apologise for any inconvenience the situation has caused. The safety of our passengers remains our top priority,” the airline said.
