The ‘no vax, no ride’ approach is supported by local airlines.

Philippine Airlines (PAL) and AirAsia Philippines are backing the government’s “no vaccination, no ride” policy, which goes into force on January 17.

AirAsia Philippines declared on Friday that it will follow the directive and continue to fly both fully vaccinated and unvaccinated passengers who need to travel urgently.

“AirAsia Philippines views the DOTr’s (Department of Transportation) proposal as an effective instrument to urge every Filipino to receive the vaccine and get an extra layer of protection against any developing Covid-19 variant,” said the airline. Ricardo Isla, the CEO of AirAsia Philippines, stated.

Persons with medical issues that prevent them from receiving the vaccine must produce a medical certificate that includes the physician’s name and contact information.

Others who are going for needed products or services should show a barangay health permit or other proof of necessity.

PAL said in a statement Thursday night that it “strongly supports the Department of Transportation’s (DOTr) activities to promote safe travel during the ongoing Omicron influx.”

It also stated that in its local and international flying operations, it would adhere to the “strictest” safety regulations and health protocols.

Only fully vaccinated individuals are permitted to travel by public transit to, from, and within the National Capital Region, which is now under Alert Level 3 until January 31 due to an increase in coronavirus infections.
