Special reminders to all our passengers:

 

For 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.

 

Effective July 27, 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

 

Meanwhile, 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

For 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.

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 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.
