These governmental regulations may change frequently and may impact the status of a passenger’s flight or the acceptance for boarding.

Passengers can visit the Departing from the Philippines page for more information on PAL’s website, said Villaluna.

For all domestic travelers: Please check with the local government offices of your origin point and your final destination on travel requirements, which may differ from province to province and are constantly revised.

For more information, visit the Traveling Within the Philippines page (PAL website).

Passengers who will take the test with one of our PAL testing partners must accomplish the form at Passenger Profile and Health Declaration (PPHD) online as early as five days before their flight departure.

Villaluna said PAL is strictly implementing Fly Safe “new normal” practices to protect passengers in compliance with international health and safety protocols.

Face masks must be worn at all times – at the airport and throughout the flight.

All PAL aircraft are equipped with high-technology systems that continuously infuse fresh air across the cabin as well as HEPA filters that trap viruses, bacteria, and other contaminants with 99.99% efficiency.

The airflow system creates a cleaner environment that is safer than most enclosed public spaces and comparable to hospital operating rooms. By Jun I. Legaspi
