The Ninoy Aquino International Airport (NAIA) has increased its daily maximum capacity for an international inbound passenger from 3,000 to 5,000 which began last February 4.
In the latest advisory from the Civil Aeronautics Board (CAB), the airlines carrying the passengers to NAIA must ensure that they will be in compliance with the entry requirements as well as the minimum health protocols for all international inbound passengers as mandated by the Inter-Agency Task Force (IATF).
CAB also reminded that passengers must ensure that they are registered to the One Health Pass before their flights.
“Airlines are directed to screen and board only those passengers who are compliant with the applicable requirements and protocols for international arriving passengers,” the agency said.
This coming February 10, the country will start receiving fully vaccinated international tourists that came from visa-free countries as long as they can provide a negative RT-PCR result.
It can be recalled that authorities have limited the number of inbound international passengers arriving in NAIA because of the lack of quarantine facilities and the limitations on the COVID-19 testing.
CAAP also minimized the number of a commercial flights from January 6 to January 10.
