PAL to operate domestic flights from Davao airport

By EMMIE V. ABADILLA

While Philippine Airlines (PAL) cancelled all domestic and international flights to and from its Manila, Cebu, and Clark hubs up to the end of this month, the flag carrier yesterday (May 20) announced plans to operate flights from its Davao hub to Iloilo, Siargao and General Santos to support the economic recovery of Mindanao.

PAL is coordinating with concerned government authorities and will announce any flight details once they are finalized.

In the meantime, the continued pause in its Manila, Cebu and Clark hub operations is in compliance with the government’s declaration of the Modified Enhanced Community Quarantine and related local restrictions from May 16 to 31.

From June 1, onwards, the airline plans to operate a reduced number of weekly flights on most domestic routes and on selected international routes, depending on COVID-19 conditions.

Specifically, this will depend on community quarantine restrictions, travel bans imposed by various governments and their impact on passenger demand, and the public health and safety situation in each of the countries that PAL serves.

Again, PAL stated it will announce 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.
