Iloilo City: Seventy two passengers bound for Cebu have been stranded at the Iloilo airport since 9:05 a.m. Thursday after a Cebu Pacific plane was delayed due to technical problems.

Cebu Pacific Flight 5J-161 scheduled to depart Iloilo at 9:05 a.m. was first estimated to leave Iloilo at 1:05 p.m. or a delay of four hours. However, the airline staff informed the passengers that the flight would be delayed further to 5:40 p.m.

The flight between Iloilo and Cebu normally takes from 30 to 45 minutes.

Rosalie Gamutan, head of the airline's station at the Iloilo airport, told the Inquirer that the Iloilo-Cebu flight was delayed because the plane's earlier flight from Cebu to Cagayan de Oro was also delayed due to "additional servicing."

This Inquirer reporter is among the passengers on the delayed flight.
