PH SUSPENDS FLIGHTS FROM UK FROM DECEMBER 24-31, 2020
Amid concerns about the new COVID-19 strain that has been spreading in Britain, the government has ordered a suspension of all flights from the United Kingdom to the Philippines.
Presidential spokesperson Harry Roque said the suspension will start on December 24, 2020 at 12:01 a.m. and end on December 31, 2020.
Roque said the suspension was approved by President Rodrigo Duterte on Tuesday night.
“All passengers who have been in the UK within fourteen (14) days immediately preceding arrival to the Philippines, including those merely in transit, are also temporarily restricted from entering the country for the same period,” Roque said.
