Beginning Friday, March 20, all airports in Luzon will stop catering to international flights—whether outbound or inbound. Travelers, including overseas Filipino workers, planning to exit or enter the Philippines through Luzon have until March 19 or 72 hours since the start of the implementation of the expanded quarantine on Tuesday to pursue their flights.
As of the moment international flights are limited to those who will ferry foreigners that might get stuck in the Philippines.
Airports in Luzon catering international flights that will be affected by the protocol are the Ninoy Aquino International Airport in Manila, the Clark International Airport in Pampanga, and the Puerto Princesa Airport.
Government guidelines on the “enhanced community quarantine” also specified that inbound international passengers who are already in transit upon the effectivity of the enhanced community quarantine will be allowed entry subject to the quarantine procedures of health authorities.
Inbound flights throughout the quarantine period meanwhile will be limited for the repatriation efforts of Filipinos overseas.
