Philippine Airlines rolled out a one-stop-shop center at Terminal 2 of the Ninoy Aquino International Airport to perform the mandatory RT PCR swab testing for returning overseas Filipinos and authorized foreign nationals.
Starting Aug. 1, the PAL OSS will augment the Manila airport’s capacity to screen travelers and process quarantine requirements for passengers who fly into the Philippines’ biggest gateway on PAL flights from North America, the Middle East, Europe, Oceania and all over Asia.
Accredited by the NTF, IATF and the Department of Health, PAL’s one-stop-shop is capable of testing 1,200 passengers in a day and producing test results within 48 hours.
The new PAL facility will operate in tandem with the existing government-run IATF one-stop-shop facility that will now exclusively serve arriving overseas Filipino workers.
“The flag carrier set up this new one-stop-shop, dedicated to non-OFW travelers, to complement the government’s current one-stop-shop for OFWs. This is industry and government working in unison with a common goal: to ensure ease and convenience of passengers as they go through testing protocols on arrival,” PAL said.
