In an advisory the Philippine Airlines on Tuesday asked the passengers of its international flights to be at the airport up to five hours ahead of departure in anticipation of long lines at immigration counters.
“Please come early in anticipation of long immigration lines,” the flag carrier said.
Immigration officers have gone on mass leave to protest alleged non-payment of overtime work.
Manila International Aviation Authority (MIAA) General Manager Ed Monreal insisted, however, that they have a “contingency plan” to ensure normal operation despite the mass leave.
Justice Secretary Vitaliano Aguirre, who said more than 30 personnel have resigned and 50 others are on leave, admitted that the problem may extend until the Holy Week.
