Thus said Malacanang yesterday, referring to the outcome of the investigation by the Civil Aviation Authority of the Philippines (CAAP) into the faulty landing of a Cebu Pacific plane at the Davao International Airport earlier this month.

Deputy presidential spokesperson Abigail Valte said that the CAAP is looking into some final details of its report.

“[Nagra-]wrap up sila, there’s just (some) final details they are looking into. We can expect pretty soon magkakaroon sila ng results,” Valte said.

The CAAP is investigating the bad landing of a Cebu Pacific aircraft at the Davao International Airport amid bad weather conditions last June 2.

As a result of the incident the Davao airport was closed for two days, amid efforts to remove the plane from the runway area.

The airline also came under fire from some customers, including Ateneo de Davao University, whose president Fr. Joel Tabora scored the flight crew members for their insensitivity to the passengers.

Another Cebu Pacific plane incident followed. The plane hit some runway lights at the Ninoy Aquino International Airport as it landed in a downpour last June 13.
