Flight Resumption Canceled After CAB Announced IATF Had Yet To Approve Flight Routes

The Civil Aeronautics Board (CAB) advised the airlines in the country to cancel the flight resumption starting June 1, 2020.

CAB executive director Carmelo Arcilla announced that the Inter-Agency Task Force on Emerging Infectious Diseases had not yet approved the travel routes for local flights. Airline firms were also ordered to stop selling tickets this week.

The Philippine government urged the airline companies to stay put amid the loosening of the community quarantine in the National Capital Regions and other parts of the country. Local airlines are already working with the government agencies before releasing the flight schedules.

“Consequently, airlines are hereby advised to cancel their flights [for] June 1, 2020, and to stop selling tickets for [that] date,” Arcilla said.

CAB also asked the IATF that only overseas Filipino workers, stranded local passengers, and cargo would be allowed into the provinces as a part of precautionary measure against the coronavirus disease. The government also prohibits leisure travel during this period.

Meanwhile, Philippine Airlines also announced that operations for international flights would be only limited to United States, Canada, Guam, Vietnam, mainland China, Malaysia, Indonesia, Hong Kong, Taipei, Singapore, Japan, United Arab Emirates, and Saudi Arabia.
