For a month starting May 11, inbound international commercial and charter flights will be allowed to land in Ninoy Aquino International Airport (NAIA) but only on assigned days, according to the Civil Aviation Authority of the Philippines (CAAP) in a Notice to Airman (Notam).

The restrictions will last until June 10 and apply at NAIA only. Other international airports in the country have their separate restrictions.

Scheduled international commercial flights will be allowed to land on Tuesdays, Wednesdays, Fridays, Saturdays and Sundays provided they secure approval from CAAP 48 hours before the scheduled departure from the airport of origin for the purpose of slotting and rescheduling of flights to subscribe to the NAIA daily capacity restriction of 400 passengers.

The landing schedule for international chartered flights is every Monday  and Thursday. Airlines must secure a clearance from the Department of Foreign Affairs and CAAP for slotting purposes.

Enroute flights experiencing emergency, ferry flights/cargo flights, air ambulance and medical supplies flights, government/military flights, weather mitigation flights, maintenance flights, and outbound ferry flights/cargo flights with passengers, as authorized, are unrestricted and not covered by the Notam.

CAAP earlier suspended inbound international flights in all international airports in the Philippines from May 3 to 9, to control the number of travelers entering the Philippines to ensure quarantine facilities   do not get overwhelmed by potential COVID-19 patients.
