As of today, we wish to keep you updated on our plans to resume some international and domestic flights on selected routes in the coming weeks.
However, we caution you that these plans are highly subject to change, depending on a number of crucial factors related to the COVID-19 outbreak. These factors include the duration of current Philippine community quarantines, the status of relevant travel bans and restrictions imposed by various governments and their effect on passenger demand, and above all on the public health and safety situation in each of the cities and countries that PAL serves.
April 15 to 30
PAL will not operate any international routes for the rest of April 2020. However, we shall continue to consider operating ad hoc special flights to retrieve stranded passengers as well as cargo flights to keep intact critical supply chains across our islands and within the Asia/Pacific region.
May 1 to 31
We are setting plans to operate a reduced number of weekly flights on our routes to Japan, the USA, Canada, Guam, Australia, the U.K., Singapore, Thailand, Cambodia, Vietnam, Malaysia, Indonesia, mainland China, Hong Kong, Taipei, Macau, Saudi Arabia and Korea.
We will announce the list of operating flights as soon as possible, in an updated advisory, once the details are finalized.
However, we shall not be operating any flights to and from the following international destinations for the month of May: Auckland, New York JFK, Dubai, Doha, Perth, Melbourne, Port Moresby, and Sapporo. All flights on these routes have been cancelled for the month of May.
April 15 to May 31
We are readying plans to resume partial domestic operations at some point within the period from April 15 to May 31. The start date will depend on the lifting of the community quarantine restrictions vs. domestic air travel. We will await the final government decisions, and will announce the list of domestic flights to be operated once finalized. However, in any case, we shall not be operating any flights to and from Clark International Airport for the month of April.
