PAL ramps up Davao-Manila services starting October 3

27 9 2020

Philippine Airlines is expanding services between Manila and Davao to cater to growing demand for essential travel out of the commercial heart of Mindanao.


Effective October 3, PAL will be increasing Davao-Manila flights to eight (8) times per week, while offering travelers a choice of three (3) Manila-Davao flights per week.


From Davao to Manila, travelers may take:
PR1810, departing at 6:30 AM every Tuesday, Wednesday, Friday, Saturday and Sunday. The flight arrives in Manila at 8:30 AM, giving travelers a convenient full day in the national capital.


PR1818, departing from Davao every Saturday at 4:00 PM and arriving in Manila at 6:00 PM.


PR1814, departing from Davao every Monday and Thursday at 1:05 PM, arriving in Manila at 2:55 PM.


From Manila to Davao, travelers may take:
PR1817, departing from Manila every Saturday at 1:25 PM and arriving in Davao at 3:20 PM. 


PR1813, which flies from Manila every Monday and Thursday at 10:15 AM, arriving in Davao at 12:05 PM.


The flag carrier will also introduce five weekly all-cargo flights from Manila to Davao. PAL's all-cargo flight, PR 1809, will transport goods and supplies every Tuesday, Wednesday, Friday, Saturday and Sunday with an early-bird departure of 3:35 AM from Manila, arriving in Davao at 5:35 AM.


Travelers bound for Davao should secure a negative RT-PCR test result issued at least 72 hours before the flight, a travel authority, a medical certificate and a valid ID. However, a passenger without RT-PCR testing can still be accepted on the flight to Davao but will need to undergo the swab test at Davao Airport upon arrival.


On the other hand, travelers bound for Manila must secure a travel authority and a medical certificate issued by the local government unit and present these upon check in for the flight.


Recently ranked among the world's top ten airlines for health and safety protections during the COVID crisis, PAL assures the flying public of its adherence to the highest safety protocols on all phases of the flight.
The flag carrier's planes are equipped with High Efficiency Particulate Air (HEPA) filters which disinfect cabin air of bacteria and viruses with 99.99% efficacy, as well as an advanced air flow system that replaces cabin air every two to three minutes. Cabin crew wear Personal Protective Equipment (PPE) on flights. Aircraft surfaces, from tray tables to walls and seat belts are thoroughly disinfected before and after every flight.
