  • Local Airlines Resume Commercial Flights This June
  • President Rodrigo Duterte, with the recommendation of the Inter-agency Task Force (IATF), has put the National Capital Region together with Davao City, Cagayan Valley, Central Luzon, Calabarzon, Pangasinan, Albay under general community quarantine (GCQ) last June 1. The GCQ entails more relaxed quarantine measures that allow nonessential businesses to operate in the hopes of restarting the country’s economy and aiding the workers who lost their jobs with the crisis.

    With this, local airline companies will be gradually resuming their commercial flights after two months of temporary stopping operations due to the COVID-19 threat.

    In a press release, AirAsia announced that they will be resuming services in the Philippines starting June 5 with key domestic routes and will gradually increase to include international destinations by July 1.

    Select flights are open for booking via the airasia.com website and mobile app.

    Additionally, guests are informed that operations for domestic flights will be temporarily moved to Terminal 3 of the Ninoy Aquino International Airport from its previous location at Terminal 4. For more details on AirAsia’s resumption of services, you may check their Facebook page.
