Flag carrier Philippine Airlines (PAL) on Tuesday issued reminders for international travel as the government gradually eases restrictions on air travel.
It said passengers leaving the Philippines must accomplish the Passenger Profile and Health Declaration (PPHD) form online five days before the flight departure.
“The online portal will be open for registration on November 10, 2020, for flights starting November 12, 2020,” the airline said.
Meanwhile, travelers bound for the US, Canada, and Australia are exempted from accomplishing the PPHD, but they “must accomplish the paper form upon airport check-in.”
Passengers going to Singapore are required to accomplish the PPHD paper form upon airport check-in, aside from the online registration.
It said that local manning agencies (LMAs) might register on behalf of their passengers.
