We regret to advise that all remaining Philippine Airlines international flights will be suspended temporarily, starting from 26 March 2020, Thursday until 14 April 2020. All domestic flights had ceased as of March 17, 2020.
After careful consideration, we concluded that PAL could no longer sustain
even a limited number of international flights for the following compelling
a) The strict travel and entry restrictions imposed by more and more countries;
b) The resulting collapse in demand for travel; and
c) Continuing challenges in staffing our Manila airport hub during the ongoing lockdown.
Accordingly, our last flight to depart from Manila this week will be PR 104 bound for San Francisco at 10:10 PM on March 25. Several flights will continue to arrive in Manila on March 26 from Los Angeles, Tokyo Narita and Jakarta, and on March 27 from New York JFK, San Francisco and Los Angeles.
Our firm goal is to resume operations starting 15 April 2020, if warranted by Philippine and international authorities, global public health conditions and the travel environment.
Due to the novel coronavirus (COVID-19) outbreak, Korean Air has reduced or suspended some of its routes.
Click the link below for the overview of Suspended/Reduced Routes (as of Mar.24 07:00 GMT). Please be reminded that flight schedules and routes are subject to change.
