MANILA, Philippines — Posibleng bumaba ang pasahe sa eroplano sa mga susunod na araw.

Ito’y matapos ipag-utos ng Civil Aeronautics Board ang pag-aalis sa fuel surcharge na ipinapataw sa presyo ng ticket sa eroplano depende sa destinasyon.

Ayon kay Board Executive Director Atty. Carmelo Arcilla, noong Biyernes pa nila ibinaba ang utos na tanggalin na ang surcharge sa lahat ng flight dahil sa significant decrease o malaking pagbaba sa presyo ng mga produktong petrolyo.

Posibleng ngayong araw ay pormal na lagdaan ang resolusyon na agad din namang ipatutupad kapag naisilbi na sa airline companies. (UNTV News)

CAB halts domestic flights in first week of GCQ

Marje Pelayo   •   June 1, 2020

MANILA, Philippines — The Civil Aeronautics Board (CAB) has suspended the operation of all domestic flights previously scheduled for the first week of June.

The agency made it clear in a memorandum that it has not approved any domestic air flights set for the first week of the relaxed restrictions under the general community quarantine 

The Civil Aeronautics Board ordered all airline companies to cancel all of their scheduled flights for this week and temporarily stop selling plane tickets. 

Presidential Spokesperson Secretary Harry Roque announced that flight schedules are being reviewed.

He also assured that the Civil Aviation Authority of the Philippines will issue guidelines on the matter soon. 

“Theoretically po, ang lahat ng flights ng GCQ to GCQ ay papayagan na, [Theoretically, GCQ to GCQ flights are already allowed],” Roque said.

“Pero aantayin po natin ang CAAP na sila po ang mag-provide ng guidelines at kinakailangan din ng panahon ng ating mga airline companies para maghanda po sa resumption ng kanilang operations, [However, we need to wait for CAAP to provide the guidelines and airline companies also need time to prepare for the resumption of their operations],” he added.

The Manila International Airport Authority (MIAA) has yet to identify which terminals will reopen. 

Meanwhile, several airline companies have already submitted their respective flight schedules to MIAA and CAAP for review. 

The Philippine Airlines (PAL) has previously announced the resumption of operations for both international and local flights though the company also advised its clients of possible changes depending on the situation relative to the existing quarantine restrictions. 

Cebu Pacific was supposed to resume domestic flights on June 2 and Air Asia on June 3.

International flights are now operating at NAIA Terminal 1 limited to only 400 passengers daily capacity based on the IATF order.

Meanwhile, Terminal 2 only caters to repatriation, sweeper flights and commercial flights by PAL. 

Terminal 3, on the other hand, will serve as a flight station for Cebu Pacific and Air Asia. 

Terminal 4, still remains closed. MNP (with reports from Joan Nano)
