[PHILIPPINES TRAVEL ADVISORY] Philippine Airlines Change in Arrivals of Some International Flights to Cebu

Due to the opening of processing and quarantine facilities at the Mactan Cebu International Airport for International arrivals, Philippine Airlines would like to advise that some international flights will be changed to land in Cebu, instead of in Manila. The rerouting to Cebu is necessary to avoid a full cancellation of international flights and to help find ways to bring passengers home to the Philippines as early as possible. 

  1. 1. Passengers whose flights are rerouted to land in Cebu will receive an advanced notice through their updated Contact information. This notice contains their recommended flight details, as well as options for their Booking. 

  1. 2. They shall undergo the mandatory COVID testing in Cebu rather than in Manila. Passengers will also be required to undergo quarantine at a Cebu hotel accredited by the Department of Health (DOH) until they receive a negative test result. Once a negative test result is confirmed, PAL will fly them from Cebu to Manila (or their final point of arrival) free of charge. 

  1. 3. Because of an additional domestic flight from Cebu, an airport terminal fee (or Passenger Service Charge / PSC) amounting to PHP 345.00 will be collected for all passengers EXCEPT Overseas Filipino Workers in Mactan Cebu Airport upon check-in. This is a fee charged by the Philippine Government or Philippine airport authorities for the use of airport terminal facilities, and in this case, the use of Mactan Cebu Airport for your domestic flight. The PSC is then remitted to the government or airport authorities upon the passengers’ flight departure from the airport. To avoid inconvenience, passengers are requested to prepare the said PSC Amount in Philippine Peso currency. Please refer to the following page for procedures on collection of PSC. 

  1. 4. In case passengers do not accept this flight change, they may also opt to: 

  • Convert their original ticket value (from original board point) to a Travel Voucher (no bonus) 
  • Rebook or reroute to a later flight (30 days from original date of travel), or 
  • Refund their booking (without penalties)

  • Wash your hands with soap or use a hand sanitizer that contains alcohol with at least 70% solution. 
  • Sneeze and cough into tissues or the crook of your elbow. If you get mucus or spit on your skin, clean it off right away. Avoid touching your face with unwashed hands. 
  • Avoid close contact with people who are sick, especially people exhibiting respiratory symptoms and fever. 
  • Stay home when you're sick. 
  • Regularly and thoroughly clean surfaces, such as countertops and doorknobs, with a disinfectant.  
  • If you are sick:  You should wear a facemask when you are around other people and practice distancing yourself.   
  • For healthy people wear a mask only if you are caring for someone who is sick or a person with suspected COVID-19 infection. Facemasks may be in short supply and they should be saved for the caregivers. 
  • If you choose to wear a facemask make sure it is covering your mouth and nose and leave no gaps between your face and the mask.
