We assure you that your current tickets are safe and remain valid. We have enhanced some of our polices to give you more flexibility due to the evolving COVID-19 situation, and uncertainties of travel.

Initially valid for 1 year and can be extended for another year. Travel is subject to fare rules of the redeemed ticket. Requests must be made until November 30, 2020. Click here to know more.

If your flight is not affected by cancellations or travel ban (from June 1 onwards), we’re also offering you the option to refund your ticket subject to fare rules.  The refund may be subject to applicable penalties depending on the schedule, status, and issuance date of your ticket. 

Due to the high volume of requests and limitations from the Enhanced Community Quarantine in the Philippines, there may be some delays in processing of refunds. We ask for your patience and understanding during this busy period.
