The need for LGUs to cooperate with national government

Even if the national government's Inter Agency Task Force have set the guidelines with regards to air travel under General Community Quarantine status, some LGUs have decided to create their own rules and policies with regards to the resumption of air travel in their area with some making last minute decisions. 

These sudden changes have caused airlines to cancel their flights last minute which in effect have inconvenienced passengers.

Majority of passengers are OFWs returning to their home provinces after taking commercial and repatriation flights to Manila. Some have been stranded for days and weeks in Manila after undergoing quarantine procedures as many LGUs still do not allow flights to enter.
