To help bring displaced Marawi City residents back home, flag-carrier Philippine Airlines (PAL) will offer 1,000 seats on a P1 fare each in three routes to Cagayan de Oro, which has the closest airport to the conflict-torn city. 

Dubbed the "Rebuild Marawi Fares," the seats will be available on flights from Manila to Cagayan, Cebu to Cagayan, and Davao to Cagayan until Dec. 14, 2017.

Tickets may be booked on the PAL website on Saturday, Oct. 28.

Low-priced fares will also be available at the PAL website and ticketing offices from Oct. 29 until Nov. 10 from Manila to Cagayan for P988, Cebu to Cagayan for P788, and Davao to Cagayan for P688. Travel dates are from Oct. 29 to Dec. 14, 2017.

PAL is also offering to airlift for free to Cagayan de Oro critical supplies and relief goods for Marawi evacuees. 

Once there, the goods will be transported by land to Marawi City through government agencies, accredited foundations, and other non-profit, religious, and civic groups.

Donors may email the PAL Foundation at [email protected] for inquiries.
