Domestic transport in PH is almost fully recovered

Domestic travel in the Philippines will soon reach 100%, according to Carmelo Arcilla, executive director of the Civil Aeronautics Board (CAB).

Arcilla went on to reassure us that the airlines are prepared for the rise in demand for flights.

He noted that certain nations have still not opened their markets, which is why the Philippines’ international travel recovery is only at approximately 70%.

“Because of its “zero” (coronavirus illness 2019) policy, China serves as an illustration. There used to be more than 100 flights a week between China and the Philippines. Currently, there are only six flights per week between the two nations “Arcilla said.

He claimed that the Philippines’ main market is China. 2019 saw between 1.2 million and 1.3 million Chinese immigrants arrive.

Other nations sending repeat visitors include Singapore, the United States, the Middle East, and Turkey, all of which have a substantial impact on the local labor market.

Airlines, however, are prepared for the increase in travelers, according to Arcilla.

“Because the airports and airlines in other countries were unable to keep up with the return of the passengers, you may now see in the news that flights in those countries have been canceled or delayed. Our air carriers are prepared, “Arcilla tacked on.

Despite acknowledging that there have been some flight cancellations in the nation, Arcilla claimed that things are not as severe as they are in certain other nations.
