FLYING SAFELY IN THE ‘NEW NORMAL’
PAL is strictly implementing Fly Safe “new normal” practices to protect our passengers, in compliance with international health and safety protocols.

Please bring your own face masks and face shields and wear them at all times – at the airport and throughout your flight. 

We encourage you to check-in online and arrive early at the airport to allocate extra time for new safety procedures– at least 3 hours prior to departure for domestic flights; and 4 hours prior to departure for international flights.  

Our cabin crew will be wearing full Personal Protective Equipment (PPE) for your protection on board 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 air flow system creates a cleaner environment that is safer than most enclosed public spaces and comparable to hospital operating rooms.  

For more information, please see here: https://bit.ly/PALKeepsYouSafe 

TRAZE CONTACT TRACING APP REQUIREMENT 

All passengers flying to, from, or within the Philippines must download and register through Traze Contact Tracing, a unified and automated contact tracing app, before proceeding to the airport.

Passengers who do not have mobile phones or any other mobile gadgets may go to the Traze Helpdesk, located near the terminal entrance in all Philippine airports and at the arrival area of international airports, for registration assistance and QR code printing. Passengers traveling to the Philippines from overseas countries are advised to download the app before they embark on their trip.

Please visit the Traze website to download and know more about the app: https://www.traze.ph.

SPECIAL REMINDER TO CHECK ON UPDATES:  

This is a developing situation, and it is quite possible that our plans and schedules may change in response to evolving travel restrictions and quarantine limitations at arrival airports. Kindly check our website www.philippineairlines.com, or follow our social media accounts, so that you’ll be updated the moment we release advisories on new developments.  


OUR THANKS AND APPRECIATION
  

Thank you for your understanding and support. Your health and safety will always be our top concern, and we wish you safe travels.
