MANILA -- Philippine Airlines will add more than 1,500 international and domestic flights this month, the flag carrier says, as the nation begins receiving tourists from abroad again following a decline in COVID-19 cases.

Scheduled flights will increase by more than 50%. The airline said it will step up flights serving North America, Southeast Asia, Japan, the Middle East and elsewhere while bolstering domestic service, including connections between Manila and Cebu in the central Philippines, Davao in the south and the resort island of Boracay.
