MANILA, Philippines — Philippine carriers canceled more flights on Monday after employees fell ill amid the latest COVID-19 surge. Philippine Airlines (PAL) was the latest to announce dozens of flight cancellations until Jan. 16.

The flag carrier said “an increasing number of our front-line and support personnel are unable to report for work due to precautionary quarantine or self-isolation requirements.”
