PAL Cancels Special Flights from the US Due to Suspension of All International Flights to and from PHL

Philippine Airlines (PAL) is cancelling all its special flights departing on May 4 to May 8 from the United States due to a directive from the Philippine government suspending all international passenger flights to and from the Philippines for a duration of one week beginning May 3.

PAL originally scheduled special flights from Los Angeles to Manila from May 4 to 8.

However, all cargo flights, sweeper flights, medical flights, utility flights, and maintenance flights are exempted in the suspension and will remain unhampered.

In a statement, the National Task Force Chief Implementer Secretary Carlito Galvez Jr. said, "the National Task Force (NTF) Against COVID-19 has made the decision to temporarily restrict flight operations at the Ninoy Aquino International Airport (NAIA) in Manila and all other international airports in the country except for the following: (1) Emergencies while enroute; (2) Cargo Flights; (3) Air Ambulance and medical supplies flights; (4) Weather Mitigation Flights; and (5) Maintenance Flights. Also allowed to continue are sweeper flights for foreign nationals repatriating back to their respective countries. All domestic air arrivals and departures at the NAIA will remain suspended."
