The CAB will limit its international flights to 1,500 passengers per day maximum for all airlines for 33 days starting 8 AM PST/PHT (Philippine Standard TIme) tomorrow, March 18, according to Manila Bbulletin.

Airlines also have to cancel international flights to and from Manila in order to comply with the protocol.

The airlines are required to comply with the directives of the Bureau of Immigration (BI) on the type of essential inbound travelers who will be allowed to enter the Philippines.

This would mean that certain passenger types have to cancel their Manila-bound travels until after the restriction period, which would end at April 19, 2021 8 AM.

Airlines exceeding the allowed capacity will be penalized based on the provisions of the joint memorandum circular 2021 of CAB, Manila International Airport Authority (MIAA), Clark International Airport Corp. ( CIAC) and the Civil Aviation Authority of the Philippines ( CAAP).

This was from an advisory issued by the CAB on March 15, 2021, Monday.

Based on the report, Philippine Airlines said that it will operate its full international schedule for March 18. It will also announce any flight cancellations on other days for the rest of the period.

“We await the final announcements and information from the BI and the concerned authorities,” 

“We seek your understanding as we prepare to make adjustments in our operations to comply with these latest government measures.”
