Notes for travel to Davao, Zamboanga, Clark, General Santos:

 

Note: Passengers traveling to Davao City are recommended to submit, prior to check in, a negative COVID-19 RT-PCR test result issued within 72 hours before departure. This is to avoid any inconvenience of having to undergo the required COVID test upon arrival at Davao airport, and waiting for the test result at the airport.(Passengers will not be allowed to leave the airport holding area until the results are released, which may usually take from 8 to 12 hours.) Children under the age of 12 are exempted provided that the accompanying adult presents a negative RT-PCR result.

 

Note: Passengers traveling to Zamboanga are required to undergo a COVID-19 RT-PCR test upon arrival in Zamboanga, and to quarantine for 14 days after arrival, to comply with requirements of local authorities. (Locally stranded individuals are now allowed by local authorities to board Zamboanga-bound flights regardless of their final destination.)

 

Note: Passengers traveling to General Santos are required to present a negative COVID-19 RT-PCR test taken in the last 72 hours prior to check-in.

Clark-bound passengers who plan to enter Angeles City must present negative COVID-19 test results (RT-PCR testing) at the city boundary checkpoints.

We plan to increase the number of routes and flights in the coming weeks and months, if allowed by aviation authorities, global public health conditions and the travel environment.


SPECIAL REMINDERS FOR ALL OUR PASSENGERS:

 

For international passengers arriving in the Philippines:

Passengers arriving at Manila airport are required to register online at least three (3) days prior to their date of departure to arrange for the mandated COVID-19 swab test (RT-PCR) to be administered upon arrival. Please visit the PAL Facebook account for more details or click on the following links:

For OFWs -- https://e-cif.redcross.org.ph/

 

For non-OFWs (Returning Overseas Filipinos, etc.) -- https://bit.ly/3ffoAIK

Passengers arriving at Cebu (Mactan Cebu International Airport or MCIA), are required to register online not earlier than five (5) days prior to their flight departure via the Passenger Arrival Registration Form. Please click on this link -- https://mactancebuairport.com/covid-19-registration

 

Payment of the fees for the swab test, as well as the cost of hotel accommodation, shall be shouldered by the traveler; except that the cost for OFWs shall be shouldered by the Overseas Workers Welfare Administration (for land-based OFWs) and by MARINA or the local manning agency (for sea-based OFWs).

 

For all international travelers: Please check the most updated travel regulations in the government website of your destination country, as well as your country of departure. These governmental regulations may change frequently and may have an impact on the status of your flight or your acceptance for boarding.

 

For all domestic travelers: Please check with the local government offices of both your origin point and your final destination on travel requirements, such as mandated documents or health certifications. These requirements differ from province to province, and are revised and updated constantly in line with the anti-COVID-19 arrangements of each locality.

For more information, please see here.


MANILA (NAIA) Terminal Assignments

 

All our international flights from Manila will depart from NAIA Terminal 1. Arrivals will be at NAIA Terminal 2.

Departure and arrival in Manila of all domestic flights will be at NAIA Terminal 2.

 

Flying Safely in the ‘New Normal’

 

PAL is strictly implementing Fly Safe “new normal” practices to protect our passengers, in compliance with international health and safety protocols.

Please bring your own face masks or facial coverings and wear them at all times – at the airport and throughout your flight.

 

We encourage you to check-in online and arrive early at the airport to allocate extra time for new safety procedures– at least 3 hours prior to departure for domestic flights; and 4 hours prior to departure for international flights.

 

Our cabin crew would have undergone medical evaluation prior to their duty, and will be wearing full Personal Protective Equipment (PPE) for your protection on board the flight. A modified meal and snack service will be offered on board, using sealed packaging instead of traditional meals.

 

Don’t worry about the cabin air --- all PAL aircraft are equipped with high-technology systems that continuously infuse fresh air across the cabin (cabin air is replaced every 2 to 3 minutes), as well as HEPA filters that trap viruses, bacteria and other contaminants with 99.9% efficiency. The onboard air creates a cleaner environment that is safer than most enclosed public spaces and comparable to hospital operating rooms.

GUIDELINES FOR AFFECTED PASSENGERS:

If your flight is cancelled, we wish to assure you that your current tickets are safe and remain valid. For details on your options, please see here: https://tinyurl.com/s9vp82n.


SPECIAL REMINDER TO CHECK ON UPDATES:

This is a developing situation, and it is quite possible that our plans and schedules may change in response to evolving travel restrictions and quarantine limitations at arrival airports. Kindly check our website www.philippineairlines.com, or follow our social media accounts, so that you'll be updated the moment we release advisories on new developments.
