PAL will also schedule replacement flights for domestic routes.
“Passengers affected by canceled flights, who have not been rebooked on replacement or alternative flights, have the option to rebook on the flight of your choice within 30 days from original travel date with rebooking service fees waived. You also have the option to refund your ticket cost within 30 days from your original flight date with refund service fees waived. Rerouting is allowed, subject to certain conditions,” PAL said.
Heavy rain and strong winds were felt in the Philippines’ capital on Tuesday and all terminals of the Ninoy Aquino International Airport (NAIA) were closed for 12 hours. Passengers are urged to monitor their flight status through advisories posted on airline companies’ official social media pages and website.
“All efforts are now being exerted to bring aircraft back to the Manila/NAIA base, operate selected replacement flights and undertake other recovery actions and operational adjustments; all these need to be phased in based on amended slot clearances at affected airports,” PAL said.
