MANILA - Philippine Airlines on Thursday said it rescheduled the resumption of its services to Caticlan to October 4 and onwards, from the originally-planned start-up today.

PAL did not give a reason for the rescheduling of flights but said that it will fly to Caticlan twice weekly, every Sunday and Friday. 

PR 2041 departs Manila at 11:10 a.m. and arrives in Caticlan at 12:10 p.m. 

PR 2042 leaves Caticlan at 12:55 p.m. and touches down in Manila at 1:55 p.m.

Passengers must log on to https://aklan.gov.ph and click the online health declaration and fill out the required fields and submit accordingly, said PAL Spokesperson Cielo Villaluna.

They must also secure a negative RT-PCR test result 48 hours before their flight and secure a confirmed booking in a DOT-accredited hotel, the airline said.
