Notes for travel to Davao, Zamboanga, Clark:

 Note: Passengers traveling to Davao City are recommended to submit, prior to check in, a negative COVID-19 RT-PCR test result issued within 72 hours before departure. This is to avoid any inconvenience of having to undergo the required COVID test upon arrival at Davao airport, and waiting for the test result at the airport.(Passengers will not be allowed to leave the airport holding area until the results are released, which may usually take from 8 to 12 hours.) Children under the age of 12 are exempted provided that the accompanying adult presents a negative RT-PCR result.

 

Note: Passengers traveling to Zamboanga are required to undergo a COVID-19 RT-PCR test upon arrival in Zamboanga, and to quarantine for 14 days after arrival, to comply with requirements of local authorities. (Locally stranded individuals are now allowed by local authorities to board Zamboanga-bound flights regardless of their final destination.)

 

Clark-bound passengers who plan to enter Angeles City must present negative COVID-19 test results (RT-PCR testing) at the city boundary checkpoints.

We plan to increase the number of routes and flights in the coming weeks and months, if allowed by aviation authorities, global public health conditions and the travel environment.
