Dear our valued passengers,

We would like to inform that all PAL flights from New York JFK to Manila (PR 127) and from Toronto to Manila (PR 119) are currently being temporarily rerouted to avoid flying over Russian airspace. This is a precaution against concerns about airspace closures related to the ongoing Russian-Ukrainian conflict.

Due to their longer routes, JFK-Manila and Toronto-Manila flights will need to stop over briefly in Vancouver for refueling before proceeding to Manila.

However, eastbound flights from Manila (PR 126 and PR 118) will continue to operate nonstop Manila to New York JFK, and nonstop Manila to Toronto.  (These flights do not overfly Russian territory.)

Dear our passengers,

We would like to inform that travelers arriving in the Philippines now have the option to present upon arrival the negative result of either:

  1. A laboratory-based or clinic-based Antigen test taken within 24 hours prior to flight departure from the country of origin; or
  2. An RT-PCR test taken within 48 hours prior to flight departure from the country of origin.

This is to comply with new health requirements announced by the Philippine Inter-Agency Task Force for the Management of Emerging Infectious Diseases (IATF-EID) as part of an overall  relaxation of travel protocols in relation to Covid-19. 

Prior to this latest IATF rule, passengers entering the Philippines were required to present a negative RT-PCR test at the minimum.

Fully-vaccinated individuals who comply with mandatory requirements (proof of vaccination/negative Covid-19 test results) are no longer required to observe mandatory facility-based quarantine, but must self-monitor for any signs or symptoms for seven (7) days.

Dear our passengers,

We would like to annouce that effective January 17, 2022, airlines are only allowed to accept fully vaccinated passengers for carriage on our domestic flights to and from Manila.

Travelers are considered fully vaccinated if at least two weeks have elapsed after their second dose of a two-dose COVID vaccine, or two weeks after receiving a single-dose COVID vaccine. You are required to present physical or digital copies of a vaccine card issued by your local government unit (LGU), or a vaccine certification issued by the Department of Health (DOH), or any document prescribed by the IATF (Inter-Agency Task Force for the Management of Emerging Infectious Disease); as well as a valid government-issued identification card (ID) with your picture and address.

However, PAL can accept unvaccinated individuals, including minors, who can present: 

  1. A duly signed medical certification with the doctor's name and contact details that states that their medical condition prevents full COVID-19 vaccination; or 
  2. Appropriate proof (e.g., barangay health pass) to support that their travel is to procure essential goods and services (e.g., medicine, medical devices, medical and dental necessities, public utilities, etc).

Children 11 years old and below can be accepted on PAL flights without the need for a medical certificate, but should still present proof of essential travel, and must follow the LGU requirements for their destination. Please be ready to present proof of the child’s age if requested.

Dear our valued passengers,

Considering that Mactan Cebu airport continues to deal with electric power supply shortages and other challenges caused by the effects of Typhoon Odette (Rai), we would like to give you a few reminders for passengers who are departing on domestic flights from Cebu:

1. You will need to allot extra time to reach the airport --- target to arrive at least three (3) to four (4) hours before your flight departure time. Travel time to the Mactan Cebu airport may vary because of access road bottlenecks, road debris and cleanup efforts, non-functioning traffic lights and other obstacles.

2. It would help to bring hand fans (pamaypay), bottled water, food/snacks, power banks and other aids,  because power, water, and telecom services are still unstable.

Online check-in will be unavailable for departures from Cebu until such time power supply becomes normal. If necessary, PAL may need to adjust our schedules in coming days.

Please share with your family members in Cebu province who may not have access to internet services.

We will work closely with the airport and local government authorities to restore normal services in due course. 

Thank you for your kind understanding. We join with our countrymen in prayers and concern for all the families who are struggling because of the destructive impact of Typhoon Odette in various parts of the central and southern Philippines.

Dear our passengers,

We would like to to remind the following guidelines enforced by the Philippine governmental Inter-Agency Task Force (IATF):

 -- Passengers who have been to, or are originating from, a 'Red List' country within the last 14 days will be ALLOWED TO ENTER THE PHILIPPINES, provided that they are RETURNING FILIPINOS traveling on government-initiated, non-government-initiated, and Bayanihan repatriation flights.

 -- Returning Filipinos must undergo a fourteen (14)-day quarantine period (10 days at quarantine hotels/facilities plus home quarantine for the next days until completion). They will have to undergo an RT-PCR test on the seventh day (the date of arrival being the first day).

 -- Passengers who merely transited via a 'Red List' country (i.e., stopover at the airport only without immigration admission into a red list country) will not be deemed as having been to this 'Red List' country. Such passengers will need to present their ticket or boarding pass upon arrival to the Philippine Immigration officials.

From the period November 16 to 30, 2021, only Faroe Islands and The Netherlands respectively are included in the list of 'Red List' countries.

To be clear: Returning Filipinos who originate from a green or yellow listed country but only transit via Amsterdam airport (airport layover, no entry into the Netherlands) will be accepted for travel to the Philippines. This includes Filipinos flying via Amsterdam and Japan with final leg on a PAL Japan-Manila flight.  

We will continue to monitor and comply with any new updates from the IATF and immigration authorities in the coming days.

Dear our passengers,

The Philippine government for facilitating the use of Cebu, Davao, Subic and other airports to help more OFWs and other overseas Filipinos fly home in time for the holidays. We likewise welcomed the increase in Manila arrivals to four thousand passengers per day shared among various airlines.

The opening of more Philippine gateways and increases in arrival limits for Manila will enable Philippine Airlines to add more international flights starting this month and leading up to the peak holiday season.

While Manila remains to be PAL's main arrival hub, the airline will be rerouting certain flights as needed.  

Some of the planned flights rerouted to alternative gateways in November 2021 and beyond:

Route Flight schedule
SAN FRANCISCO - CEBU   PR 105 - Every Saturday, from November 6 to March 26
LOS ANGELES - CEBU   PR 153 - Every Wednesday and Friday, from November 5 to March 25
DUBAI - DAVAO PR 659 - November 4, 6, 9 and 10
DUBAI - CEBU   PR 659 - November 5, 7, 12 and 14

Dear our passengers,

Effective November 8, 2021, the U.S. government will require non-U.S. citizens who are not immigrants to be fully-vaccinated, and show proof of vaccination status, to be able to enter the United States.

This does not apply to U.S. citizens, U.S. nationals, U.S. lawful permanent residents and immigrants. For information on travel requirements for U.S. citizens, U.S. nationals, U.S. lawful permanent residents and immigrants, please refer to

https://www.cdc.gov/coronavirus/2019-ncov/travelers/international-travel-during-covid19.html.

One is considered fully-vaccinated for COVID-19:

  • 14 days after his or her dose of an accepted single-dose COVID-19 vaccine;
  • 14 days after his or her second dose of an accepted 2-dose series COVID-19 vaccine;
  • 14 days after he or she received the full series of an “active” (not placebo) COVID-19 vaccine in the U.S.-based AstraZeneca or Novavax COVID-19 vaccine trials; or
  • 14 days after he or she received 2 doses of any “mix-and-match” combination of accepted COVID-19 vaccines administered at least 17 days apart*

*The U.S. Centers for Disease Control & Prevention (CDC) has not recommended use of mix-and-match combinations, but will accept them for the purpose of interpreting vaccination records for entry into the U.S. because such combinations are adopted by many countries: 

https://www.cdc.gov/coronavirus/2019-ncov/travelers/proof-of-vaccination.html#covid-vaccines.

If you do not meet the above requirements, you are NOT considered fully-vaccinated and you will not be allowed to board a flight to the United States, unless you meet exemption criteria under the latest CDC regulations. Such exceptions include:

  • Persons on diplomatic or official foreign government travel
  • Children under 18 years of age
  • Persons with documented medical contraindications to receiving a COVID-19 vaccine
  • Participants in certain COVID-19 vaccine trials
  • Persons issued a humanitarian or emergency exception
  • Persons with valid visas [excluding B-1 (business) or B-2 (tourism) visas] who are citizens of a foreign country with limited COVID-19 vaccine availability
  • Members of the U.S. Armed Forces or their spouses or children (under 18 years of age)
  • Sea crew members traveling with to a C-1 and D nonimmigrant visa
  • Persons whose entry would be in the national interest, as determined by the U.S. Secretary of State, Secretary of Transportation, or Secretary of Homeland Security (or their designees)

If you travel by air to the United States under one of these exceptions, you must attest that you are exempted from the requirement to present proof of vaccination:

  • You will be tested with a COVID-19 viral test 3 to 5 days after arrival in the United States, unless you have documentation of having recovered from COVID-19 in the past 90 days;
  • You will self-quarantine for 7 days, even if the test result to the post-arrival viral test is negative, unless you have documentation of having recovered from COVID-19 in the past 90 days; and
  • You will self-isolate if the result of the post-arrival test is positive or if you develop COVID-19 symptoms.

    A parent or an authorized person should attest on behalf of a passenger who is under 18 years old or any passenger who is unable to sign their own attestation (e.g., because they are too young, or because of physical or mental impairment). Visit https://www.cdc.gov/coronavirus/2019-ncov/travelers/noncitizens-US-air-travel.html for more details.

    All types of COVID-19 Vaccination proof must show the full name of the passenger (as shown in passport), the name of official source issuing the record (public health agency, government agency, other authorized vaccine provider), the vaccine brand and the dates of inoculation.

    The following COVID-19 Vaccination proof are acceptable:

  • Verifiable records (digital or paper): Vaccination certificate with QR code*, digital pass via Smartphone application with QR code* (e.g., United Kingdom National Health Service COVID Pass, European Union Digital COVID Certificate);

Dear our passengers,

During period MAR 15 to APR 18, only domestic flights are affected by the imposed quarantine restrictions while the intenational flights to and from Manila (MNL-NAIA) will continue to be operated.

  • For passengers heading outside Manila, Point-to-Point (P2P) buses are operating between the Ninoy Aquino International Airport Terminal 3 (NAIA T3) and Clark International Airport (CRK). This will be a direct airport to airport service only (no stops within Metro Manila will be allowed).
  • Arriving passengers at NAIA T1 who are connecting to a PAL international flight out of T2 shall go through a Security Check at T1 and, once cleared, proceed to the designated airside bus gates where an airport shuttle bus shall take them to T2.  Once there, they shall proceed to the Transfer Desk and then to the departure gates for their onward international flight. (The process is similar for a connection from T2 to T1.)
  • Arriving international passengers who are not residents of Metro Manila may exit the Metro Manila area to go to their homes outside the metro region, provided that they present, at the Metro Manila border checkpoints, identification cards and proof of international travel and arrival.
  • If you are departing on an international flight from NAIA at nighttime, you should arrive NAIA terminal no later than 8PM to avoid inconvenience and any questioning at checkpoints

Travelers from outside Metro Manila may enter the Metro Manila area to take international flights departing from Manila (NAIA) to overseas countries, but will be required to present proof of their CONFIRMED flight itinerary at the Metro Manila border entry checkpoint, showing that their departure is within 12 hours of entry.
