Philippines travel alert: UAE airlines reinstate flights


Some flights between Dubai and Manila have been reinstated after the UAE and Philippines implemented several travel restrictions to fight COVID-19.

As of Tuesday, Filipino migrant workers and foreign nationals were allowed to leave the Philippines despite the Luzon-wide "enhanced community quarantine".

From Wednesday, several airlines reinstated flights to accommodate the new ability to travel.

Philippine Airlines (PAL) will continue on with their day-to-day operations and flights between Manila and Dubai. 

Emirates Airline remains operational for their flights to and from Manila, with Cebu Pacific yet to make a statement.

Flights between Abu Dhabi and Manila on Etihad Airways currently remain suspended until further notice.

Passengers are advised to check with their airline prior to travel.
