DAVAO CITY – A total of 272 foreign nationals, who have been stranded in the Davao Region for more than a month because of the lockdown enforced to arrest the spread of the coronavirus disease 2019 (COVID-19), were finally flown to Manila from the Davao International Airport (DIA) here Saturday, April 18.

City Tourism Office head Generose Tecson said in a text message on Sunday that a sweeper flight from the Philippine Airlines (PAL), deployed by the Australian Embassy, arrived in the city to fetch not only the stranded Australian, but also the Canadian, American, Japanese, and Norwegian nationals.

She said the aircraft left for Manila around 2 p.m.

“They all had forwarding tickets to their international destinations…This is outbound only and passengers must have connecting flights going to Australia or other countries,” she said.
