The Philippines’ major airlines have all announced that their flights are canceled for the rest of May, in compliance with the government’s new quarantine guidelines.

Budget airlines AirAsia Philippines and Cebu Pacific said all domestic and international flights are canceled from May 16 until May 31.

“All Cebu Pacific and Cebgo domestic and international flights remain canceled from May 16 to 31, 2020. This is in line with the implementation of Modified Enhanced Community Quarantine over Metro Manila,” the airline announced.

Meanwhile, flag carrier Philippine Airlines canceled its domestic flights to and from hubs in Manila, Clark and Cebu.

“We confirm that all Philippine Airlines domestic and international  flights to and from our hubs in MANILA, CEBU and CLARK will remain cancelled up to May 31,” PAL said in a statement.

It added, “The continued pause in our Manila, Cebu and Clark hub operations is in compliance with the Philippine Government’s declaration of the Modified Enhanced Community Quarantine and related local restrictions for the period from May 16 to 31.”

According to PAL, it is planning to operate a reduced number of weekly flights for most domestic routes and on selected international routes by June 1, but it will depend on COVID-19 conditions, such as community quarantine restrictions, travel bans imposed by various governments and their impact on passenger demand, and above all on the public health and safety situation in each of the countries that the airline serves.

PAL also said it will announce that the list of operating flights and routes for June 2020, once the details are finalized.

“PAL will continue to operate occasional special flights to repatriate stranded passengers and to transport urgent cargo such as medical equipment and supplies to help sustain critical supply chains across the Philippines and on selected international routes,” it said.

  1. I always fly PAL from Dammam to Manila and vice versa for many years. I am supposed to fly back home last March 14, 2020 but “fate” intervene. My relief unable to come on time for some reasons. My company had changed my flight to a later date but Covid 19 forced most of the borders and airports to close down. To date I am still stuck and cannot leave Saudi just yet. I am sick, twice hospitalized during the lock down. My question is, is PAL considering Saudi as one of their international flight on June 2020 and is my ticket still valid?
