PAL cancels Duba-Manila flights on these dates following new travel restrictions


- Advertisment -

Following the new travel restrictions imposed in the Philippines, Philippine Airlines has suspended its Dubai-Manila flights (PR658) for March 18 and 20. The national task force in the country said that it will limit the daily inbound passenger to 1,500 from March 18 until April 19. 

“Philippine Airlines will be announcing additional flight cancellations for the remainder of the stated period once the details are confirmed,” PAL wrote on the website. 

A PAL spokesperson was quoted as saying by Gulf News that the scheduled flights on Friday and Sunday (March 19 and 21, respectively) at 7:55pm (UAE time) will not be affected, but the number of passengers will be limited. PAL said that the restrictions are part of a series of pandemic control measures announced by the national authorities in the Philippines.

If you are covered by these flight cancellations and/or travel restrictions within this period, you have the following options:

1. Avail of unlimited rebooking (no rebooking fee) until December 31, 2021.

If you will be completing your travel by June 30, 2021 (or ticket validity, whichever comes first), there will be no fare difference charge.
