Through their Facebook account, Philippine Airlines announced that they'll be sending special flights to China on Monday, February 10, 2020 to "assist passengers stranded as a result of the cancellation of all PAL flights to and from mainland China for the month of February, amidst the ongoing coronavirus (nCoV ARD) situation."


In case you didn't know, PAL canceled all flights to and from mainland ChinaHong Kong, and Macau over the threat of the novel coronavirus on February 2, 2020. 

The special PAL flights will all be staffed with volunteer pilots and cabin crew, following the routes: Manila-Xiamen and Xiamen-Manila.

According to their advisory, the flight from Xiamen will let "Filipino citizens and holders of Philippine permanent resident visas to fly back to the Philippines" while the flight "from Manila will allow Chinese and other non-Filipino nationals to return to mainland China via Xiamen Gaoqi International Airport, which is a gateway to other points."

An important factor: These special flights are still subject to government approval. They'll also need "the waiver of the Filipino travel ban for concerned pilots and cabin crew, who will have to submit to home quarantine for 14 days after their return to the Philippines."
