Malacañang on Chinese plane in Davao

From the Presidential Spokesperson –

As per records of the Civil Aviation Authority of the Philippines (CAAP), the Chinese aircraft made a technical stop in Davao City on June 8 for mere refuelling.

Relevant government agencies closely coordinated for the aircraft’s refuelling, which followed established procedures.

According to the permit granted, the aircraft was bound for Cairns, Australia.

As verified and reported by CAAP, no movement of passengers was made outside the terminal building. The Chinese aircraft used a local handler, Transnational Aviation Support Service, to arrange the requirements for the permit. The flight was given an entry and exit permit, like any other private flights.

The same courtesy is extended to Philippine Government aircrafts when technical stops need to be undertaken.

From SAP Bong Go

There are reports from social media showing Chinese government plane landing in the Philippines.

The request for landing was received, processed and cleared by relevant Philippine Government agencies.

The landing was requested for the specific purpose of refuelling and was granted and given with specific conditions for compliance by the requesting party.

Technical stops by foreign government and commercial planes, including for refuelling purposes, are closely coordinated by our relevant Government agencies following established domestic procedure and in consideration of existing agreements.

The same courtesy is extended to Philippine Government aircrafts when technical stops need to be undertaken.

The DND, DFA and CAAP – and other relevant agencies – work together to ensure that requesting parties comply with our domestic procedures and requirements.
