UPDATE: PAL flights on November 17 & 24 changed to Bangkok-Bohol

Due to the arrival capacity set by the Philippine government at Ninoy Aquino International Airport in Manila, we regret to advise you that your flight PR731 from Bangkok (BKK) to Manila (MNL) on November 17 and 24, 2021 will land in Bohol-Panglao International Airport (TAG) instead. This is an alternative option you can take, so you can continue with your travel to the Philippines. 

You will undergo the mandatory RT-PCR testing in Bohol rather than in Manila. You will also be required to undergo quarantine at a Bohol hotel accredited by tourism and health agencies until you receive a negative test result. Once a negative test result is received, a flight to Manila will be arranged by PAL for Non-OFWs and by OWWA for OFWs, free of charge.
