PINAIMBESTIGAHAN nina Bayan Muna chairman at Makabayan senatorial candidate Neri Colmenares at Bayan Muna Rep. Carlos Isagani Zarate ang naging sanhi ng mga flight cancellation na ikinaperwisyo ng libo-ibong pasahero na karamihan ay turista at overseas Filipino workers (OFWs).
“I myself suffered a seven hour delay of my CebuPacific (CebuPac) flight last April for Bicol and I was forced not to attend a Mitong de Avance in Bacolod last May 1 because of flight delays of Philippine Airlines (PAL). This is very unprofessional for the airline carriers and they must be held accountable to consumers,” sabi ni Colmenares.
“This is the reason why we filed the Air Passengers Bill of Rights in the 16th Congress and was refiled by Bayan Muna in the 17th Congress under House Bill 6191. If enacted into law air passengers will be protected and compensated with P10,000 when airline delays and cancellations occur,” dagdag pa ng Makabayan senatorial bet.
Ayon naman kay Rep. Zarate, kailangang imbestigahan ang nangyaring aberya sa CebuPac lalo na’t may report na masyadong nasasagad umano ang paggamit ng mga eroplano ng CebuPac kada araw at nasasakripisyo ang dapat sana’y araw ng pahinga o maitenance window ng mga eroplano nito.
“It is said that they have been adding more destinations and frequencies without enought equipment (aircraft). We have also received reports that Cebu Pacific flight cancellations is due to union busting moves of the management to harass and fire their organized workers,” dagdag pa ng mambabatas.
Nanawagan ito sa kanyang mga kasamahan sa Kamara na bilisan ang pagpasa sa House Bill 6191 at ang motu proprio oversight hearing kaugnay ng nabanggit na isyu.
