Travel Advisory


28 Jul 2021

Travel Advisory No. 194


Restrictions imposed by Saudi local authorities are continuing this week, and thus we are compelled to make adjustments to our flights to and from Riyadh and Dammam in Saudi Arabia, as follows:

  • Cancellation of certain Manila-Riyadh-Manila flights on July 30, 31, August 2 and 6
  • Cancellation of certain Manila-Dammam-Manila flights on August 2, 3 and 8
  • Regular operation of our other Dammam and Riyadh flights during the period August 1 to 8, but with available seats reduced on the Dammam-Philippines and Riyadh-Philippines sectors to comply with limitations on the number of passengers we are allowed to carry on certain flights.  (However, we can carry a full load of passengers on the Manila-Dammam and Manila-Riyadh sectors, so the outbound flights are not affected.)

To reiterate, these cancellations and adjustments are beyond PAL's control and prevent us from serving the urgent travel needs of our OFWs and other passengers.  Thus, we reiterate our urgent appeal to the Saudi and Philippine authorities to work towards resolving the situation so that we may again be able to operate our full schedule of flights to and from Riyadh and Dammam, and make use of all our seats onboard each flight, for the best interests of our passengers.

Affected passengers may opt to:

  1. Rebook your flight to a later date;
  2. Convert your ticket to a Travel Voucher;
  3. Refund your ticket without penalties.

(Terms and conditions apply)

You may request any of the options via the MyPAL Request Hub at https://bit.ly/myPALRequestHub.

Thank you for your understanding.
