  1. "All foreigners can leave anytime but Filipinos are not allowed to leave unless they are OFWs, permanent residents or holders of student visa in their country of destination." This press release out today, but doesn't say how long this will be PRESS RELEASE 29 May 2020 International travel restrictions remain under GCQ - BI MANILA, Philippines - The Bureau of Immigration (BI) said it will continue to implement international flight travel restrictions at the Ninoy Aquino International Airport (NAIA) despite the lifting of the modified enhanced community quarantine in Metro Manila and its being placed under general community quarantine (GCQ). In a statement, BI Commissioner Jaime Morente said travel restrictions that existed under ECQ and MECQ are still in place unless said restrictions are eased or lifted by the government. "As a consequence, our operations at the NAIA are still downscaled and our personnel there are still on skeletal and rotational deployment," Morente said. He added that most international flights remain suspended as a result of the travel restrictions which affected Filipinos and foreigners alike who wished to enter or leave the country. "Nonetheless, we assure the public that we are always ready to resume full, normal operations in our international airports once the government decides to ease or lift these travel restrictions," the BI chief stated. According to BI acting port operations chief Grifton Medina, international flights remain limited and few since the start of the lockdown in mid-March. He further disclosed that BI officers at the NAIA currently serve an average of only 20 to 30 flights a day, a third of which are special flights that ferry medical supplies and other kinds of cargo into the country. As for the passenger flights, Medina said these are mostly repatriation flights that transport returning overseas Filipino workers (OFWs) and chartered sweeper flights that bring foreigners stranded here back to their homelands. Under existing guidelines approved by the Inter-Agency Task Force Against Infectious Diseases (IATF), only OFWs; Filipino citizens and their spouses and dependents; permanent residents; and foreign diplomats are allowed to enter the country. All foreigners can leave anytime but Filipinos are not allowed to leave unless they are OFWs, permanent residents or holders of student visa in their country of destination. https://www.facebook.com/officialbureauofimmigration/?__tn__=kCH-R&eid=ARDYTsEKt09f8A1vlWO6XVAR-kOIdkW06qjx1FISkTowNPncgZ71bQ-dkvK3ZCR7roMZ3xYKU0LUJgt7&hc_ref=ARSIb52W_sfSeW_T5PancmuGYZ5oY07UFJIOEUZj8jzoditcmF0gl2wknLgQKsNlm9M&fref=nf&__xts__[0]=68.ARDr9lmIfbZyYXyoN_lJLNEZi0w4MF_9MyYfKJgGGjAd43oLNpwfc6K_7SFmGXkRwu6Sc0g8amlvsZuDrmtHPjGw8wsTQd28SSGt6BrHHolvHb-EoiXLFpMcXk7H4c2CYMqSAS0pR2MqmSciBZdFqxpsYy2jl8jvkdwNMamoEwsvqOsfiuzyrt_gN_qmHBuzmsJJlbSgaFkPq_jU1w7ODkI0Zmt19_EHvs2VgDhEeSgxKNB-3ygyw-1VvxgI70tM2D22rzTiQsUfGlDBTUCn5Nu-YSAEFwd5Otd1UVqWFfFwAPCsZ9HDuI8ImZGp5Q
  2. The problem is if they get a case they freak out in the area or if they hear about it. Then you will have a mayor shut down and an area, and then you have barangay captains shutting down areas as well.
  3. Good to know, and will put Korean air on my high list next time I book. Grandma Flight Attendants, That is Classic...
  4. Metro Manila mayors agree to recommend shift to GCQ on June 1 Read more: https://newsinfo.inquirer.net/1281301/ncr-mayors-agree-to-shift-to-gcq-on-june-1#ixzz6NYL1OZUz Follow us: @inquirerdotnet on Twitter | inquirerdotnet on Facebook I don't know exactly what that mean, if people from other parts of the country can travel there or not. I guess they are slowly opening back up Manila.
  5. "President Rodrigo Duterte is expected to make a decision this week on whether or not Metro Manila and other high-risk areas of COVID-19 transmission will shift to more relaxed general community quarantine." https://www.philstar.com/headlines/2020/05/26/2016654/covid-19-cases-philippines-climb-14669-deaths-886?utm_campaign=COVID-19 14 669 cases&utm_content=&utm_medium=push_notifications&utm_source=izooto&utm_term=
  6. My flight always arrived in Manila around 10pm, I would never purchase a flight to Davao until I was on the ground. I would go to Terminal 4 which is the smallest Terminal there and purchase a ticket from MNL to DVO one way and it ran about $40, the first flight was around 4 am and they would let you inside the Terminal at 3pm. The flight usually had only about 20 people on it. I would lay down on the row and sleep all the way to Davao and arrive as the sun was coming up.
  7. Last I read they were only testing like 8000 people per day, and the goal was 30,000. Looks like Philippine may be the next hotspot along with some other SouthEast Asia countries: https://www.cnbc.com/2020/04/20/southeast-asia-could-be-the-next-coronavirus-hot-spot-these-charts-show-why.html
  8. That is why American is my best and fastest route there, since American Airlines is based in Dallas they have planes going all over the world from here. I had some issues with American back around 2010 on flight from to Asia and quit flying them for 5 years, Since Delta expanded and started flying to Manila I became a fan of Delta even with the extra layover. But now I am have hugged and made up with AA and flying them again. Only American and Korean Air have one stop flight from Dallas
  9. Link please: Only thing I am reading now is diplomats and Philippines citizen are the only ones they are letting in the country, and still they have like 2 week quarantine. Where are you reading tourist are able to enter on June 1st?
  10. Dallas, Texas I would like only one layover and stay on same airline or at least a travel partner. I usually take American to Japan and then to Manila, and have taken Delta a few times but usually I have to go to either Detroit or Atlanta from DFW and then onto Japan and then Manila. I am open to Korean air, I just won't fly on any plane that land in China or has China in it's name
  11. I just checked and got updated with my "boots on the ground" Davao is still under ECQ and have a curfew of 9pm till 5 am.
  12. My American Airlines flight from US to PI was cancelled 6 days ago
