Connecting Flights

 

PAL offers a check-through amenity, a one-stop check-in for passengers originating from any PAL station with connecting flight to any PAL destination. 

Each flight ticket has its own Free Baggage Allowance policy. This FBA entitlement is valid only on that specific flight and may not necessarily apply to your connecting flights. PAL or other carriers may require you to pay excess baggage fees if your FBA entitlement is lower on your connecting flights. 

Important: Minimum connecting time depends on what carrier/terminal the passenger is arriving and the carrier/terminal where the passenger is connecting or departing. Connecting time between NAIA Terminal 2 and NAIA Terminal 3, and among PAL, and other airlines vary, from 45 minutes to 3 hours depending on origin and destination. 

Baggage Clearance: For connecting flight involving different terminals (in Manila), due to facility limitation and CIQ requirements, tagging the baggage all the way to final destination is not allowed. Passenger needs to claim their baggage and clear with Customs upon arrival.
