MANILA — Philippine Airlines (PAL) flights to and from Tacloban have been cancelled until Dec. 14, following the suspension of operations at Daniel Romualdez Airport (Tacloban Airport).

PAL made this announcement after the Civil Aviation Authority of the Philippines (CAAP) over the weekend restricted the use of the airport to military and general aviation doing relief operations.

However, as of Monday, 1:05 am, CAAP said that Tacloban Airport is no longer on limited operations and is now open for commercial flights.

The airline earlier advised passengers booked on any PAL flights to and from Tacloban from Dec. 7 to 14 to contact PAL Reservations for rebooking or refund of tickets.

PAL said that its contact centers will be calling affected passengers, particularly those who provided contact information when they booked with PAL.

Passengers may rebook for travel within 30 days from original flight date, with rebooking fees/charges waived.

If a passenger is unable to rebook on the same fare class, rebooking on a higher booking class will be allowed, with fare difference also waived.

PAL has yet to announce its next move following the resumption of Tacloban Airport’s operations.
