In an advisory posted on its Facebook page, PAL said the affected passengers may avail of unlimited rebooking until Dec. 31, with no rebooking fee. They could also convert their tickets to a travel voucher (must be requested on or before June 30).

Travelers may also opt for a refund.

The limit on the number of inbound international passengers at NAIA also prompted Cebu Pacific to cancel its Japan flights from March 18 to April 18. (PNA)
