Rerouted Philippine Airlines (PAL) flights carrying overseas Filipino workers (OFWs) can land at the Subic Bay International Airport (SBIA) starting Monday, according to the head of the Subic Bay Metropolitan Authority.

SBMA Chairman and Administrator Wilma Eisma said the arrangement was thanks to a government program to facilitate the return of overseas Filipinos during the Covid-19 pandemic.

Eisma said six PAL flights are expected to land at the SBIA in July carrying mostly OFWs from Dammam and Riyadh in Saudi Arabia.

The flights will arrive on July 5, 7, 15, 17, 25, and 27 with an average of 230 passengers for each trip.

“The arrival of OFWs via Subic is in line with the policy of the Civil Aeronautics Board (CAB) to impose a limit for all international airports in the country to accommodate just 1,500 passengers per day,” Eisma said.
