Philippine Airlines is calling for the easing of arrival protocols for fully vaccinated travelers.
PAL said a “green lane” approach would enable easier entry of fully vaccinated travelers into the country to help revive safe tourist travel and more convenient repatriation.
The green lane concept to remove quarantine requirements for immunized travelers has been proposed by the Department of Tourism.
The IATF is currently working with the DOT, Department of Health and other government agencies to review possible changes in arrival protocols.
PAL said it is supporting ongoing efforts by the government to explore revisions in arrival protocols, such as adopting a minimal quarantine period for vaccinated travelers.
PAL president and COO Gilbert Santa Maria said, “We look forward to easier entry for fully vaccinated travelers as a way of jumpstarting the aviation, travel and tourism industries that support Filipino jobs and the economy.”
