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 in Manila of all domestic flights will be at NAIA Terminal 2.

If you are departing from the Philippines, you must accomplish the Passenger Profile and Health Declaration (PPHD) form online via https://bit.ly/PALIntPPHD as early as 5 days prior to your flight departure.  
Exempted from accomplishing the online PPHD form are travelers bound for Australia, all of whom must accomplish the paper form upon check in at the airport.  (Passengers bound for United States, Singapore and Canada are required to accomplish the PPHD paper form upon airport check-in in addition to the online registration.) 

Passengers departing on PAL international and domestic flights from Manila may undergo RT-PCR and Antigen testing at the Philippine Airlines Learning Center (PLC) located at 540 Padre Faura cor. Adriatico St. Ermita, Manila or PAL Gate 3 located at Andrews Avenue, Pasay City. This is a partnership with Detoxicare Molecular Diagnostics Laboratory. 

The PAL testing center provides drive-thru or walk-in testing from 8AM to 8PM daily at PAL Learning Center and 12NN to 8AM the next day for PAL Gate 3 (except for Mondays, operations start at 8PM).

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 and face shields 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 99.99% efficiency. The onboard air creates a cleaner environment that is safer than most enclosed public spaces and comparable to hospital operating rooms.

This is a developing situation, and it is quite possible that our plans and schedules may change in response to evolving travel restrictions and quarantine limitations at arrival airports. Kindly check our website www.philippineairlines.com, or follow our social media accounts, so that you'll be updated the moment we release advisories on new developments.


Thank you for your understanding and support. Your health and safety will always be our top concern, and we wish you safe travels.
