PINAYAGAN na ng Inter-Agency Task Force (IATF) ang pagkakaroon ng special commercial flights mula Oman, Dubai at Abu Dhabi na may travel restrictions.
Ito ay para makauwi na sa bansa ang mga stranded na Filipino sa nabanggit na mga bansa.
Gayunman, sinabi ni Presidential Spokesman Harry Roque na kinakailangan munang magkaroon ng guidelines sa special commercial flight.
“These special commercial flights are, however, subject to guidelines, such as the creation of a Special Working Group (SWG) to determine the implementing protocols for the special commercial flights, in coordination with the concerned airlines. The Department of Health, the Bureau of Quarantine, the Overseas Workers’ Welfare Administration, the Department of Foreign Affairs, the Department of Transportation and its One-Stop Shop, the Philippine Coast Guard and the Department of Tourism shall form part of the SWG,” pahayag ni Roque.
Sinabi pa ni Roque na exclusive sa mga Filipino ang special commercial flights na dapat ay may nauna nang approval mula sa SWG.
“ Also, the guidelines on the implementation of exemptions for the Philippine government and non-Philippine government repatriation shall be followed,” dagdag ni Roque. EVELYN QUIROZ
