Philippine Airlines will be canceling additional international flights even though the government already made adjustments to its previous decision to allow Filipinos abroad in entering the country.

According to PAL, they have canceled more flights because of the 1,500/day limit on arriving passengers from international flights at the Ninoy Aquino International Airport.

The limited number of passengers per day is due to the heightened measures in line with the COVID-19 pandemic.

These are the canceled PAL flights;
