The move came after the CAAP through the Department of Transportation (DOTr) received a letter from Inter-Agency Task Force for the Management of Emerging Infectious Diseases (IATF-EID) chief implementer Secretary Carlito Galvez, Jr. requesting the suspension.

A total of 9 international airports in the country will be covered by the NOTAM on the suspension of flights: Ninoy Aquino International Airport, Davao International Airport, Clark International Airport, Iloilo International Airport, Mactan-Cebu International Airport, Zamboanga International Airport, Kalibo International Airport, Laoag International Airport, Puerto Princesa International Airport.

Cargo flights, sweeper flights, medical flights, utility flights, and maintenance flights are exempted in the suspension and will remain in operation.
