In a Notice to Airmen (NOTAM), inbound international chartered flights will be allowed to land at NAIA on Mondays and Thursdays for as long as clearance is secured from the Department of Foreign Affairs (DFA) and CAAP for slotting purposes.

Inbound international commercial scheduled flights will be allowed to land at NAIA on Tuesdays, Wednesdays, Fridays, Saturdays, and Sundays. These commercial flights have to secure approval from CAAP 48 hours before the scheduled departure from the airport of origin for the necessary slotting and rescheduling of flights in order to subscribe to the 400 passengers per day capacity of NAIA.

However, not covered by the NOTAM are enroute flights experiencing emergency, ferry flights/cargo flights, air ambulance and medical supplies flights, government/military flights, weather mitigation flights, maintenance flights, and outbound ferry flights/cargo flights with passengers, as authorized.

These restrictions will be in effect from May 11 to June 10 and will only be implemented in NAIA, a statement from the Manila International Airport Authority (MIAA) said.
