Flight Cancellations for January 13 to 24, 2022

UPDATE as of 12 January 2022 10:00 PM


Flight Cancellations for January 13 to 24, 2022


Dear PAL passengers:


We continue to experience challenges in sustaining full operations because an increasing number of our frontline and support personnel are unable to report for work due to precautionary quarantine or self-isolation requirements.  


We are taking the precaution of cancelling a number of PAL flights, even as our PAL teams do all we can to maintain as many other flights as possible, process all passenger requests and relieve the longer call waiting times and ticket office queues.  We are also compelled to cancel some international flights to comply with newly reduced limits to the daily number of passenger arrivals allowed at Manila airport by the Philippine government authorities.  


We request your kind understanding as we cope with these temporary challenges.


The following DOMESTIC flights have been cancelled:

This is a very fluid situation:  We may need to cancel more flights or make other operational adjustments in the coming days. Please continue to check flight status for any changes in your flight schedule.


Our PAL Medical team is actively monitoring the health and wellness of all employees - including our cabin crew and flight teams. 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.



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 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.


Reminders as we adjust 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 defer less urgent rebooking transactions related to travel within the next seven (7) days, so that we can 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.


We are redirecting more personnel and resources to handle MyPAL Request Hub transactions where they are most needed to help us serve more passengers during this challenging time.

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 sincerely apologize to our passengers and their families for ongoing inconveniences.




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. 


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.
