CAB won't allow domestic flights in first week of June
The Civil Aeronautics Board (CAB) said it will not allow domestic flights yet in the first week of June.
In a text message to the Philippine News Agency (PNA), CAB chief legal officer Wyrlou Samodio said no domestic flight was approved yet as these need to wait for clearance from the Inter-Agency Task Force (IATF).
In an advisory dated May 30, CAB said the IATF "has yet to approve the routes for domestic air services proposed by airlines for the resumption of domestic operations in the first week of June."
The CAB added that it advised airlines to cancel their flights on June 1 and to stop selling tickets for the said date.
