Beginning March 18 until April 19, international inbound arrivals at the country’s premier airport shall be limited to a maximum of 1,500 passengers per day for all airlines combined in line with a directive issued by the Civil Aeronautics Board (CAB).
To comply with the restriction, airlines will need to cancel a number of international flights to and from Manila during that period.
“Philippine Airlines will operate full international schedule for March 18 but we will be announcing in due course any flight cancellations on other days for the rest of the period,” PAL management stated in its advisory.
The airline stated it will also comply with any directives from the Bureau of Immigration and concerned agencies on the type of travelers that will be allowed entry into the Philippines within the same period.
“We seek your understanding as we prepare to make adjustments in our operations to comply with these latest government measures, as we support the national effort to prevent the spread of COVID-19,” PAL management said.
