MANILA, Philippines — Local airlines will push through with their international flights to and from the Ninoy Aquino International Airport as well as their domestic flights outside Manila during the modified enhanced community quarantine (MECQ) in Metro Manila and adjacent provinces this month.

Flag carrier Philippine Airlines (PAL) said its domestic flights between Clark and Cebu, Davao and cities other than Manila are not affected and would remain operational during the two-week MECQ period.

PAL said international flights to and from Manila would continue to operate, subject to further guidelines from authorities in line with quarantine capacity and related arrangements.

Budget carrier Cebu Pacific said it would push through with its Clark-Cebu-Clark and Cebu-Davao-Cebu services every Tuesday.

The airline said it also intends to operate flights to Dubai, Seoul, Singapore from Manila, as well as flights from Tokyo and Osaka to Manila this month.

AirAsia Philippines will also continue its flights between Manila and Kuala Lumpur and Don Mueang in Bangkok while the MECQ is in place in Metro Manila.

It will also operate Clark-Davao-Clark and Cebu-Davao-Cebu services while domestic flights in Manila are suspended.

All three carriers canceled their domestic flights to and from Manila from Aug. 4 to 18 in line with the government’s classification of Metro Manila as an MECQ area.
