I read the link Bidrod posted. Maybe I am reading this wrong but my understanding is that the Philippine locals won't be able to fly out of the country but international travel would be accepted there from other countries. It would depend on the country of origin and requirements for travel.

Am I understanding this right?

That's how I read it. I believe OFWs can still travel out.

Domestic flights will be allowed between GCQ areas —CAAP
Published May 4, 2020 9:12am

The Civil Aviation Authority of the Philippines (CAAP) on Monday said domestic flights will be allowed between areas under the general community quarantine (GCQ).

Inteviewed on Dobol B sa News TV, CAAP spokesperson Eric Apolonio said the procedures for the gradual opening of domestic airports were submitted to the Department of Transportation (DOTr).

“Puwede lang po mag-operate sa GCQ. Kung ang flights galing GCQ, ‘yung airport na pupuntahan nila ay under enhanced community quarantine, may problema,” he said.

“Dapat parehong GCQ,” he added.

Apolonio said DOTr Secretary Arthur Tugade ordered CAAP Director General Jim Sydiongco to consider the gradual opening of domestic airports amid the threat of coronavirus disease 2019 (COVID-19).

He added that health protocols will be considered in the opening of the operations such as wearing necessary protective equipment and observing social distancing.

Due to the threat of COVID-19, some flights in the country were suspended since the implementation of community quarantine in March. —Joviland Rita/KG, GMA News

I had thought of going to Canada for the spring school break, my daughter is a teacher and my son worjks for the government and has to use up his time off so they both would have been off last week of March.

Glad I ddn't go as it looks like I would had to stay in Canada until restrictions lifted. Unless SRRV can be accepted as a perminant resident (PRA made applicatin and was denied)

Arriving flights with Pinoy repatriates allowed at NAIA starting May 11, but on select days

Arriving international charter and commercial flights can land at the Ninoy Aquino International Airport (NAIA) but only on specific dates starting May 11, the Civil Aviation Authority of the Philippines (CAAP) announced on Saturday.

Inbound international chartered flights will only be allowed to land on Mondays and Thursdays, provided they secure a clearance from the Department of Foreign Affairs (DFA) and CAAP for slotting purposes, according to a Notice to Airmen (NOTAM) released by the CAAP.

Meanwhile, inbound international commercial flights will be allowed on Tuesdays, Wednesdays, Fridays, Saturdays, and Sundays. However they need to secure approval from the CAAP 48 hours before the scheduled departure from the airport of origin for the necessary slotting and rescheduling of flights in order to subscribe to the 400 passengers per day capacity of NAIA.

“Enroute flights experiencing emergency, ferry flights/cargo flights, air ambulance and medical supplies flights, government/military flights, weather mitigation flights, maintenance flights, and outbound ferry flights/cargo flights with passengers, as authorized, are unrestricted and are not covered by the NOTAM,” the CAAP said.

“The restrictions, which will last a month, from May 11 to June 10, is going to be implemented in NAIA only, with other international airports in the country having their separate restrictions,” it said.

CAAP recently issued a NOTAM suspending commercial flights in NAIA and eight other airports starting May 3 and lasting for a week. —Ted Cordero/KG, GMA News

If I fly into manila at Ninoy then can I get a domestic flight to say Davao city or Mactan airport in cebu?

What about the return flight to the states? I am not sure if I understand the restrictions.

Art, Just my thoughts on what you want to do. The number of travelers is to be restricted to 400 per day through NAIA, so if you compare this # to the normal amount of travelers through, it is going to be severely restricted and I doubt you will be able to complete any travel plan. You would also have to consider when & where you may be quarantined while trying to get to any destination as no one is allowed to go about freely as we used to do.

Another thought on this is that with all this 'social distancing'. It will still cost the airlines xx amount of dollars to conduct a flight from A to B and the necessity to carry fewer passengers, the per seat cost has to increase somewhat and one can only presume they will make the most of it.

Just a couple things for you to consider.
