BACOLOD CITY: Gov. Eugenio Jose Lacson on Wednesday granted a request of Philippine Airlines (PAL) for special flights for fully vaccinated individuals from October 18 to Nov. 29, 2021.

The governor informed PAL Manager Rene Aviles that their request dated Oct. 12, 2021, was approved.

Aviles sought the permission of Lacson to allow fully vaccinated individuals to travel from Manila to Bacolod.

All passengers can avail of a special discounted rate of P3,750 all-in-fare without undergoing an RT-PCR test.

The scheduled flights will depart from Manila around 8 a.m. and will arrive at the Bacolod-Silay International Airport around 9:20 a.m., every Monday and Friday only, starting Oct. 18, 2021, until Nov. 29, 2021.

Provincial consultant Albee Benitez said the PAL special flights will also cater to residents of Bacolod, considering that the city government will also no longer require RT-PCR test for fully vaccinated residents.

Selling of tickets for the flights will start October 14 and will be available through select travel agents and PAL direct ticket offices only and not through their website.

Aviles said the purpose of the special flights is to help promote the vaccination program of the government.
