The Civil Aviation Authority of the Philippines (Caap) on Friday said it has been given approval by the National Task Force against COVID-19 to increase the number of inbound international passengers arriving at Ninoy Aquino International Airport (Naia) and at the airports in Cebu and Clark.

In a letter addressed to Caap director general Jim Sydiongco, Defense Secretary Delfin Lorenzana said a gradual increase of daily passenger capacity restrictions of Naia, Mactan-Cebu International Airport (MCIA) and Clark International Airport (CIA), would be allowed, “taking into consideration the respective airports’ COVID-19 testing capacities, and subject to close and full coordination with airport authorities.”


From 2,000 a day, Naia would now be allowed to accept an additional 3,000 inbound international passengers daily. MCIA and CIA will have a 1,500-daily international passenger restriction.
