What is the status of PAL flights?

All Philippine Airlines international and domestic flights to and from our hubs in Manila, Cebu, and Clark are cancelled until May 31, 2020 due to the quarantine restrictions extended by the Philippine Government for specific locations. 

We continue to carry cargo shipments to keep intact critical supply chains across the Philippines and within the Asia/Pacific region.

When will PAL resume operations?

We plan to resume our operations in by June 01, 2020, if the situation allows. We will be operating flights to and from our Manila, Cebu, Davao, and Iloilo hubs. 

However, we caution you that these plans are highly subject to change, depending on COVID-19 conditions: the duration of community quarantines, the status of travel bans and restrictions imposed by various governments and their impact on passenger demand, and above all on the public health and safety situation in each of the countries that PAL serves.
