Philippine Airlines (PAL) is hoping it can resume international and domestic operations in limited capacity flights on May 16.
“We are preparing and identifying routes for possible bookings, but we still need the go-signal from the government to operate our commercial flights,” said PAL spokesperson Cielo Villaluna. “We have complete sets of masks, gloves, goggles, and personal protective equipment (PPE) which our crew will wear during and every flight for the protection of everyone on board.”
On the other hand, Cebu Pacific Corporate Communication Director Charo Lagamon said they have been coordinating with the Department of Tourism (DOT) and other organizations to mount sweeper and repatriation flights.
“We have finalized sweeper flights with the DOT, starting May 1, between Manila and key domestic destinations to fly stranded passengers,” Lagamon said.
Cebu Pacific continues to operate all-cargo flights to keep vital goods moving across the country during the enhanced community quarantine.
