Travel Advisory

Cebu arrival for Kuala Lumpur flights July

15 7月 2020


Advisory No. 96

July 15, 2020

 


Attention - Passengers departing from Kuala Lumpur (July 19 and 26)


Your PAL flight PR 526 will be re-routed to land in CEBU (Mactan Cebu International Airport - CEB) instead of in Manila, because of quarantine processing limitations at Manila airport. The rerouting to CEBU is necessary to avoid a full cancellation of your flight.

 

The flight will operate as PR 5526 (Kuala Lumpur – Cebu), departing KUL at 12:20 PM and arriving in CEB at 4:50 PM.

 

ATTENTION - ALL MANILA- BOUND PASSENGERS: WHAT TO EXPECT

 

You will undergo the required COVID testing in Cebu rather than in Manila, and quarantine at a Cebu hotel accredited by the Philippine health and tourism authorities.

 

Once you receive a negative test result (usually within 24 to 48 hours of the test), PAL will fly you from Cebu to Manila at no extra 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 (except that, for Overseas Filipino Workers - OFWs, the government will shoulder the cost of tests and accommodation).

 

BOOK YOUR HOTEL IN ADVANCE

 

Please book your Cebu hotel accommodation prior to your departure. You may choose from this list of accredited hotels. For the updated list, please click on this link --https://www.philippineairlines.com/en/~/media/files/coronavirus/accred ted%20doh%20hotels%20cebu_03jul.pdf?la=en

 

We suggest that you book your hotel for at least two (2) nights, in line with the expected 24 to 48 hours processing time to receive the COVID test results. Please show a copy of your hotel reservation as you check in for your PAL flight to the Philippines.

 

REGISTER IN ADVANCE WITH CEBU AIRPORT

 

All international passengers arriving in Cebu are required to register online not earlier than five (5) days prior to their flight departure via the Mactan Cebu International Airport (MCIA) Passenger Arrival Registration Form.  Click on this link to register: https://mactancebuairport.com/covid-19- registration

 

CEBU AIRPORT & PROVINCE ON GCQ STATUS

 

Mactan Island, the site of Mactan Cebu airport, is presently under a more relaxed GCQ or General Community Quarantine status. This includes the many hotels on Mactan Island that have been accredited by the Department of Health (DOH).

 

Mandaue City and most of the Province of Cebu are likewise under GCQ or the even more relaxed Modified GCQ status.

 

Only Cebu City proper has been classified under the stricter MECQ or Modified Enhanced Community Quarantine status. "Cebu City" refers only to the specific urban area within the central city limits, and does not include the other cities and municipalities of Metro Cebu (such as Mandaue, Danao, Lapu- Lapu, Cordova, Carcar, etc.) that are classified as GCQ or MGCQ.

 

PLEASE NOTE

 

This new option to land in Cebu is one solution (to the quarantine arrival limitations) that we have worked out with airport and health authorities, so that we can serve the thousands of travelers who have urgent and essential reasons to travel home to the Philippines.

 

Our aircraft and our crew are ready to fly you home, and we will do what we can to make this possible. Thank you for your patience and understanding in this challenging time.
