LEGACY carrier Philippine Airlines (PAL) on Monday said it is anticipating a large volume of passengers traveling to the provinces and out of the country during this year’s Holy Week period (April 15 to 21).
“Please be advised that due to heavy traffic around Naia’s four terminals, you must allocate more time in going to the airport to ensure that you will make it in time for your flight,” Spokesman Chielo Villaluna said.
Domestic-bound passengers are advised to arrive at the airport at least 2.5 hours before their flight, while international-bound passengers must be at the airport at least 3.5 hours before flight departure. “Please check your updated flight status and terminal assignment before heading to the airport by visiting www.philippineairlines.com/#PALflightstatus, clicking the Flight Status Tab in the PAL web site or by calling  855-8888 then pressing 2 for Arrival and Departure Information,” she said. She advises passengers to take note that flight information from Flight Status Tab is available two days before and until two days after the flight departure.
“You may check in via our PAL web site www.philippineairlines.com, or myPALapp within 24 hours to one hour before your flight,” she said.
She told passengers to ensure that their passport is at least six months valid from date of travel “and that you have with you the required visa and other travel documents. Please bring a valid government ID, company or school ID.”
“To delight you during this very busy travel season, PAL has partnered with Filipino fruit juice brand Locally to give free refreshments for passengers departing from Naia Terminal 2 [International and Domestic] and Clark Airport from April 15 to 21, 2019,” she said.
PAL has also tied up with Super Delights (Brownie Bites) and Super Crunch (Corn Chips) to provide snacks for passengers departing from NAIA Terminal 2 (International and Domestic) on April 15-21.
“For any travel-related concerns, you may call PAL’s 24-hour Reservations hotline – 855-8888. Travel updates will also be posted on PAL’s Facebook page,” Villaluna said. “We wish all our countrymen a safe, peaceful and meaningful Holy Week break.”
