Over 100 passengers on board the special flight of the Philippine Airlines (PAL) from Xiamen, China arrived in the Philippines on Monday (February 10).

PAL’s special flight arrived at around 1:00 p.m. at Ninoy Aquino International Airport (NAIA) Terminal 2. There are 120 Filipinos and Philippine passport holders on board the special flight.

PAL allotted special flights to repatriate stranded passengers after the government implemented the travel ban on China, Hong Kong, and Macau due to the novel coronavirus (2019-nCoV) threat.

PAL Spokesperson Cielo Villaluna is thankful for the pilot and cabin crew who volunteered to assist passengers in PAL’s special flight.

“Nagpapasalamat po tayo sa mga piloto at cabin crew ng Philippine Airlines (We are thankful for our pilots and cabin crew in the Philippine Airlines) for volunteering this special mission to bring back to China our stranded Chinese tourist guest and other foreign guests and of course for the return flight could bring back our kababayans,” she said.

The passengers will be under home quarantine for 14 days which will be strictly monitored by the Bureau of Quarantine.

Meanwhile, PAL will have another schedule for their special flights.—AAC
