The Special Chartered Flight tentatively scheduled on August 6 will be moved to August 5, 2020 (Wednesday) in partnership with Philippine Airlines. All kababayan who registered for the fifth chartered flight will still enjoy all the privileges and benefits of a special chartered flight. Philippine Embassy officials, Bangkok Vista Holiday and other Filipino community leaders will also be at the airport to assist and to ensure that everyone gets to fly. 

Flight details are as follows: 

Flight number: Philippine Airlines PR0731
Date: 05 August 2020 (Wednesday)
ETD: 13:30 (Suvarnabhumi International Airport, Bangkok)

ETA: 18:00 (Manila)

This upcoming flight on August 5 will be the last chartered flight for the time being due to the Modified Community Quarantine (MCQ) that will take effect in Metro Manila from August 4-18. 

Those who still want to join the flight may directly contact Bangkok Vista Holiday.

Once again, this is an initiative of a group of Filipino community and business leaders particularly of Bangkok Vista Holiday Co., Ltd. who have graciously offered their services for FREE and even assigned a Filipino staff in hopes of assisting the government in bringing home stranded Filipinos in Thailand.

Meanwhile, the quarantine procedures in Manila are as follows:

  1. Mandatory COVID-19 test (OWWA pays for OFWs, self-payment for those who are non-OFWs);
  2. Mandatory quarantine to await result of COVID-19 test (OWWA pays for quarantine for OFWs, self-payment for non-OFWs or possible free quarantine at a ship managed by the Philippine Coast Guard); and
  3. If COVID-19 test is negative, repatriates can go home. Those living in the provinces can already book a flight or ship home. If positive, repatriates will be admitted in a DOH managed facility.

Overseas Workers Welfare Administration (OWWA) will pay for the COVID-19 test, accommodation and food of OFW repatriates. OFWs need to register at http://oasis.owwa.gov.ph and Red Cross https://e-cif.redcross.org.ph before their flight.

Maraming salamat po at mabuhay!
