Civil Aviation Authority of the Philippines (CAAP) spokesman Eric Apolonio said the aircraft carried 80 passengers and 6 crew on board. All are safe and were transferred to the airport terminal upon landing.

CAAP has issued notice to airmen (NOTAM CO423/18) announcing that all flights to and from Busuanga have been cancelled as of June 9.2018.

The aircraft was stalled 150 meters at the end of Runway 08 and had to be removed while awaiting the arrival of the equipment that will tow the aircraft to a remote parking bay.

CAAP has sent Aircraft Accident Investigation and Inquiry board (AAIIB) investigators, Col. Aberto Dulay and Reineer Baculinao to conduct an investigation and determine the cause of the accident.

The Francisco B. Reyes Airport handles at least 16 domestic flights daily from carriers, Cebgo,, PAL Express, Skyjet, and Air Juan.
