With movement and travel restrictions easing and more people vaccinated by the day, flag carrier Philippine Airlines sees brighter days ahead.
PAL welcomed the latest moves by major local government units in Cebu, Palawan, Iloilo, Butuan, Tacloban, Dumaguete, Cagayan de Oro and Dipolog to relax protocols.
It expects more LGUs to follow suit as the pace of vaccinations pick up.
“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,” said Dexter C. Lee, SVP of Strategy and Planning at PAL.
Bilyonaryo Lucio Tan’s PAL expects an uptake in domestic travel in the next few months especially in tourist destinations such as Boracay.
PAL continues to airlift essential vaccines to various parts of the country, To date, the airline has carried 8.7 million vaccine doses from Manila to provinces in Luzon, Visayas and Mindanao. This comprises 45% of the total number of vaccine doses flown domestically since March this year,” Lee said.
