City government plans to file protest vs airline company
by PIO release

The city government will file a protest against the management of Cebu Pacific, a local airline company, for the alleged inconvenience suffered by some of the city’s athletes because of the company’s reported failure to properly inform the members of the judo contingent changes in their boarding arrangement that their inability to board their flight for Puerto Princesa to join the Batang Pinoy national championships.

City Administrator Bonifacio dela Peña said he will meet with the city’s judo athletes and their coaches to discuss the intention of the city government to file a protest against the airline company.

He said he will also discuss with the athletes and coaches how to deal with the financial support committed to them by people who remedied their overnight stay in Metro Manila and the purchase of plane tickets the following day so they could catch up with the judo competitions in Puerto Princesa.

Based on the reports that reached the City Administrator’s Office, the city’s 11-person judo team with their coaches arrived at the terminal 3 of the Ninoy Aquino International Airport (NAIA) two hours before their flight and checked in, but the boarding gate for their flight was allegedly transferred without prior information and that they only knew of the said transfer at the last minute that caused them to rush to the new boarding gate.

However, the city’s judo athletes and coaches were not allowed to board their flight despite their appeal to be allowed to board.

Through the effort of their coaches, the judo athletes stayed overnight in Metro Manila and were able to purchase more expensive plane tickets to Puerto Princesa the following day.

The post about the incident went viral and got the attention of kind-hearted individuals locally and overseas who pledged financial support to them.

Dela Peña said Cebu Pacific reportedly promised to reimburse P40,000 which represents almost one half of the total expenses the team shelled out.

He expressed gratitude, in behalf of the local government, to the people who raised some funds to help the athletes, saying that the matter will also be discussed during their meeting.
