Philippine Airlines will airlift for free all relief donations intended for victims of typhoon Ondoy. All provincial PAL stations will load on flights bound for Manila any bulk cargo box containing donations addressed to reputable, non-profit, charitable organizations in Manila.
To maximize the cargo load of the aircraft, PAL station heads will be verifying and limiting the contents of the donation boxes to items of value and use, and exclude such donations as expired food and medicines, water, rice (due to weight considerations) and unusable stuff.
Complete information of the consignee organization must be supplied with the cargo box/container inscribed with "care of the PAL Foundation". Individual donations for private or personal families will not be accommodated.
Meanwhile, PAL passengers whose flights were affected by typhoon Ondoy will not be charged any penalties when rebooking for the next available flights.
PAL ticket holders with confirmed bookings from September 26 to October 4, 2009 will have all penalties waived when rebooking.
