PAL mounts 4 special repatriation flight for OFWs in Kuwait

by | News

The flag carrier, Philippines Airlines, announced on Monday that it has lined up four flights from Kuwait to Manila this week to help repatriate the distressed overseas Filipino workers (OFWs).

The four flights, which are all free of charge, will be mounted in response to President Rodrigo Duterte’s request to local carriers to help the OFWs to come home.

The first of the four flights already took off last Monday wherein 220 OFWs arrived in Manila via PAL flight PR 669.

The other three flights will happen on Tuesday, Thursday, and Sunday, accordingly. The PAL planes will depart from the Kuwait International Airport at 4:00 and would arrive in Manila at 6:40 a.m. on the following morning.

PAL said that they would continue to coordinate with the Philippine Embassy in Kuwait and the DFA on identifying and selecting the OFWs to ensure an orderly process in availing of the repatriation effort.

They also said that they are ready to add more special repatriation flights if needed.

“We are here to serve our Filipino brethren. This is our assurance to the families of the affected OFWs, who are concerned about the welfare of their loved ones,” PAL chairman Lucio Tan said in a statement.

PAL first announced last Saturday that it will be mounting special flights for the repatriation of distressed overseas Filipino workers from Kuwait.

The airline announced their offer a day after President Rodrigo Duterte asked all Filipino workers in Kuwait to return to the Philippines within 72 hours or 3 days.

PAL also said that they are now coordinating with the Department of Foreign Affairs and will be sending a 363-seater plane to repatriate the workers.

On Friday, the president asked Filipinos in Kuwait to come home after the woman whose body was found inside a freezer in Kuwait City was identified as a Filipina.
