PAL delays resumption of flights until Monday


Philippine Airlines has postponed its resumption of flights to Guam by 3 days.

The airline initially hoped to resume service to Guam today, June 12.

However Guam International Airport Marketing Administrator Rolenda Faasuamalie confirmed for PNC News that PAL won’t resume flights here until Monday, June 15.

Philippine Airline flights PR110 & 111 from Manila to Guam, and the return from Guam to Manila, are now scheduled to operate on June 15 &16, June 19 & 20 and June 25 & June 27.

Faasuamalie said flights will leave Manila at 10:55 p.m. and arrive on Guam at 04:45 a.m. the next day. They’ll then depart back to Manila 2 hours later at 06:45 a.m.

The airline did not provide Guam airport officials with a reason for the delay.

Adelup officials say Guam is expecting around 1,600 travelers from PI to come to Guam, either as returning residents or as transiting passengers.

The Philippines is considered a “hot-spot” under GovGuam’s updated quarantine procedures, meaning any Guam resident returning from PI will have to quarantine at a government facility for 14-days.

Having a negative COVID-19 test result will not exempt residents returning from the Philippines from mandatory hotel-quarantine.
