Travel Advisory

PHL Time: 09June2020 


We regret that we have canceled the following flights to and from the USA and Canada.  The government authorities are unable to give us an allocation for international arrival slots at Manila airport (NAIA/ MNL) because of unavoidable constraints in quarantine processing capacity in Manila:

  •    PR102/103    Manila-Los Angeles-Manila on June 10 
  •    PR104/105    Manila-San Francisco-Manila on June 10 
  •    PR116/117    Manila-Vancouver-Manila on June 10 
  •    PR126    Manila-New York JFK on June 11
  •    PR127    New York JFK-Manila on June 12

However, we plan to operate the following flights departing on June 11, 2020:  

  •    PR102    Manila-Los Angeles on June 11
  •    PR103    Los Angeles-Cebu, in lieu of Manila, on June 11 (arrival date in Cebu is June 13)

We are still working on arrangements for PR103 to land in Cebu on June 13, and will announce this once confirmed.  

Important:  Please note that our PR103 passengers will be required to undergo the mandatory COVID testing in Cebu instead of in Manila, and will be quarantined at a Cebu hotel accredited by the Department of Health until  they receive a negative test result (usually within 24 to 48 hours of the test).  Once a negative test result is confirmed, PAL will fly them from Cebu to Manila free of charge. (Please note that the cost for the COVID tests and the quarantine hotel will be borne by the traveler, whether the tests and quarantine take place in Cebu or Manila.)  


We seek the kind understanding of our passengers for these latest developments beyond our control.  Please note that we may need to make further changes to our flight schedules, including cancellations or other adjustments, based on continually evolving controls, restrictions and entry requirements set by the concerned government authorities, who are focused primarily on promoting and protecting public health during these critical times.
