PAL restarts Saudi Arabia flights

Aviation Updates Philippines – In an advisory released on Monday, national flag carrier Philippine Airlines announced it is now accepting passengers on its flights to Saudi Arabia beginning January 4, 2021, as Saudi Arabian authorities gradually opened up for international flights.

For flights to Saudi Arabia, PAL released the following guidelines as of January 4, 2021:
  • Upon arrival in the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia (KSA), all non - Saudi citizens who are more than 8 years old must submit a negative RT-PCR test result from an accredited laboratory in their home-countries. The said tests must have been carried out within 72 hours before departure for Saudi Arabia. They will need to carry out a 7-day home quarantine after their arrival in KSA.
  • Non-Saudi citizens who had been in any country identified as having the new covid variant strain must spend no less than 14 days in another country (such as the Philippines) BEFORE entering KSA. (Saudi nationals and certain humanitarian and urgent cases are exempted from this requirement but will be required to undergo a 14-day home quarantine after arrival in KSA.)
