Domestic and international flights of Cebu Pacific and Philippine Airlines are suspended until May 15 in line with the extension of enhanced community quarantine (ECQ) in various provinces, including the National Capital Region.
Cargo flights for both airlines will continue operating to support movement of vital goods, medicines, personal protective equipment, and to sustain critical supply chains across the Philippines.
PAL said it will continue to operate occasional special flights to repatriate stranded passengers.
It intends to resume operations by May 16, 2020, if warranted by Philippine and international authorities, global public health conditions, and the travel environment.
“We are setting plans to operate a reduced number of weekly flights on most domestic routes and on selected international routes,” PAL said, adding that the list of operating flights and routes will be announced once details are finalized.
“However, we caution you that these plans are highly subject to change, depending on COVID-19 conditions: the duration of community quarantines, the status of travel bans and restrictions imposed by various governments and their impact on passenger demand, and above all on the public health and safety situation in each of the countries that PAL serves,” the carrier noted.
