Flight Cancellations for January 8 to 16, 2022


Dear PAL passengers:


With the ongoing surge of COVID-19 cases, we are receiving more calls from passengers who need to rebook or cancel their flights because they have tested positive or are in precautionary isolation.  At the same time, many of our frontline team members are unable to report for work. We are thus facing challenges in sustaining our full regular operations and ensuring prompt service for all our customers.


We are taking the precaution of cancelling a number of domestic and international flights, even as our PAL teams do all possible to process all passenger requests and relieve the longer call waiting times and ticket office queues.  We request your kind understanding and cooperation as we cope with these serious but temporary challenges.

Options for Passengers of Cancelled Flights



We sincerely regret the inconvenience this will cause to your travel plans. Your current tickets are safe and remain valid, and you may avail of the following options if your flight is cancelled:

1. Convert your ticket to Travel Credits equivalent to the unused base fare of your ticket. Voucher validity is one year (1) year from date of issuance.

2. Rebook or Reroute your ticket to another flight with available space within 60 days from the original flight in the same booking class or higher within the same cabin class.

3. Refund ticket without penalties, excluding Ticketing Service Charge

You may request the above through our MyPAL Request Hub facility at https://www.philippineairlines.com/en/ph/home/covid-19/mypalhub.


You may access the online self-reaccommodation tool for flight rebooking. Click the Manage Booking Tab and then select the Flight Disruptions radio button in our homepage https:www.philippineairlines.com.


If your contact details are in our reservations records, you will be informed of the status of your flights via e-mail, telephone call or SMS/text.
 


Adjustments due to service constraints:


We encourage you to use our MyPAL Request Hub for rebooking requests, queries and ticket transactions, rather than call our PAL customer hotline or visit our ticket offices (which are unable to fully accommodate the very high volume of calls and requests).  Please consider deferring less urgent rebooking transactions related to travel within the next seven (7) days, and let us reserve the customer hotline and ticket offices for the most urgent calls and transactions.  If you purchased your ticket through a travel agent, please deal directly with your agent for any rebooking or ticketing transaction needs.
Our Metro Manila city ticket offices will be open only five (5) days a week, from Mondays to Fridays, 9 AM to 5 PM. However, our airport ticket offices at NAIA Terminal 2 (2 AM to 10 PM) and Terminal 3 (8 AM to 5 PM) will remain open on all days of the week; and our Domestic Airport Road ticket office in Pasay City will be open from Mondays to Saturdays.   
Please stay updated on changes in travel requirements by checking the website of the concerned provincial local government or destination country.


We assure you that PAL adopts and continuously updates strict health and safety protocols to protect all travelers, including full PPE for our cabin crew, aircraft cabin air flow systems that continuously infuse fresh air, and HEPA filters that screen out viruses and other contaminants, for a safer and cleaner environment.

 

THANKS FOR BEARING WITH US

We greatly appreciate the dedication of our PAL personnel who are able to report for work and do their best to care for our customers despite these challenges.

We sincerely apologize to our passengers and their families. Thank you for your patience and cooperation as we work with you and with our partner agents, government authorities and our PAL teams worldwide to make the best of a very challenging situation.
