Philippine Airlines said Thursday it expects more local government units to ease travel restrictions as the government ramps up the nationwide vaccination drive and allows point-to-point travel for all ages, provided seniors, pregnant women and persons with identified health risks are fully-vaccinated.
“We welcome the latest moves by key LGUs to relax travel protocols, including those for travel to Cebu, Iloilo, Butuan, Dipolog, Tacloban, Dumaguete, Cagayan de Oro, Palawan and other areas. We are hopeful that more LGUs will follow suit in easing travel protocols,” said PAL senior vice president for strategy and planning Dexter Lee.
“The government’s intensified vaccination drive across various provinces is an important factor in these decisions to make travel more convenient while ensuring the safety of everyone,” he said.
The flag carrier urged the flying public to take advantage of their fully-vaccinated status when traveling to domestic destinations.
