Philippines to resume domestic flights on June 1Christian Fernsby ▼ | June 1, 2020
The Philippines will resume domestic travels beginning on June 1 as the country starts further loosening coronavirus lockdown in the capital Manila and some parts of the country, the Ninoy Aquino International Airport (NAIA) said.
Air, sea and land travels were restricted in mid-March after Philippine President Rodrigo Duterte imposed a lockdown in Metro Manila, which was later expanded to other parts of the country.
On Thursday, Duterte said restrictions in Metro Manila will be further eased from June 1, allowing most businesses and transport to reopen despite a steady rise of coronavirus cases in the country.
The Philippines now has 17,224 confirmed COVID-19 cases, including 950 deaths and 3,808 recoveries. ■
