Philippines reopens its skies to incoming international flights

この記事を書いている人 - WRITER -

International flights can land in the Philippine capital again after the government reopened its airport.
Flights were stopped last week after the country could not cope with thousands of workers returning from overseas.
There have been more than 10,000 confirmed cases and 700 deaths in the country.
Al Jazeera’s Jamela Alindogan reports from Manila, Philippines.

    • Avatar migzzy 022 says:

      reopen to incoming filipino and outgoing stranded country are in good shape right now to laugh about.except to the one how started this and intentionally opening pandora’s box to infect the whole world.

    that wont end well

    • Avatar Mini M says:

      What? 400 people a day in an airport that usually has 30,000+ passengers a day?

    • Avatar Trekkie_ _0802 says:

      it’s really only to make sure no one gets stranded, only Filipino Citizens & permanent residents will be allowed in, and non-resident foreigners allowed out. Flying for non-repatriation purposes are still a no go.

  3. Avatar Marcus Zoe13 says:

    They are taking a high risk with this maneuver

    • Avatar Mini M says:

      It’s only for repatriated Filipinos and for stranded foreigners trying to go home. These are not tourist flights. Only 400 people a day in the airport, when there are usually 30,000 people a day there.

    • Avatar Hum phrey says:

      @Mini M Still, these repatriated Filipinos are most likely carrying different mutations of COVID. We’ll see. As I keep on saying. Monsoon season is here.

    Corona virus 🦠 Will soon be history

    • Avatar Rolman80 80 says:

      Obviously when is the key WHEN?

    • Avatar Hum phrey says:

      It will be part of our history and it is here to stay. I guess, the governments are really succeeding in making people ignorant.

    • Avatar soar highhashid says:

      Maybe the end of the history.

    That’s returning sea ferer and Filipino ofw back in Philippines and foreigners out of Philippines back to their home countries because so many foreigners here are studying and working here as call centers…..
    Thats essential flights for repatriation…..
    Sometimes aljazeera when you broadcast make the details clear. Watchers are getting confuse..

  7. Avatar lei feng says:

    so when foreigners in Philippines can fly out????

    • Avatar Kyle Panuncillon says:

      It depends on their own country if they’ll allow their citizens back home

    • Avatar lei feng says:

      @Kyle Panuncillon Every country will allow their citizen back home! Australia government will always let citizens in if only PAL reopen for outbound flight..

    • Avatar Darius A says:

      @wow i am lost you still don’t get it.
      Sleep on it.
      Focus on the reward that’s promised to you by religions then you will be able to connect the dots why death should be wonderful for religious folks… Since the best prize of eternal life awaits you…

  10. Avatar 2ne1blink87 Jack says:

    Are foreigners allowed in the country now? I want to go home so bad. American citizen but Filipino by birth

    • Avatar 2ne1blink87 Jack says:

      Trekkie_ _0802 do you think they will eventually allow foreign nationals in around June/July?

    • Avatar Trekkie_ _0802 says:

      2ne1blink87 Jack it’s too early to tell, but the general consensus is that anything earlier than Q4 of 2020 will be next to impossible.

    • Avatar Trekkie_ _0802 says:

      2ne1blink87 Jack even if flights start up again, the visa waivers suspension still won’t be lifted and PH embassies still can’t issue new visas without Congressional approval, and I highly doubt they’re in any rush to reopen the borders, so unless you already have a valid yellow or bronze ACR I-card. I’m afraid you’ll have to wait awhile.

    • Avatar 2ne1blink87 Jack says:

      Trekkie_ _0802 😭😭😭

    • Avatar Mini M says:

      if you’re a Filipino by birth, then aren’t you a Filipino citizen? You can travel there

    Please open temporary domestic flights and ports for citizens isolated in the provinces. It has already been isolated for more than two months, but the government has no support.Due to the continued extension of the ECQ, many citizens are unable to return to their homes in the provinces. I hope you give me enough time to go back. Covid wants us to consider the people who are isolated without knowing when it will end. We are afraid because there is no guarantee to return home after May 31st.

    Swabbing must be sterile with strict precautions. One set of PPE per every patient to be swab to prevent cross infection and contamination of the specimen.
