Grab and Uber news

Uber has been one of the most frequently used transport network vehicle service (TNVS) in the country until it stopped operations last week.



The warm weather continues, with transportation updates adding to the heat. Uber has finally halted its operations in the country, while up in the air, new flights will be pushed by the Philippine Airlines (PAL) as a way to recover from the loss in tourism now that Boracay is set to close its gates to the public.


Weather: Summer heat continues



Expect the sizzling summer heat to drag on as the temperature reaches a maximum of 35 °C and a minimum of 34 °C. [1] Since the heat might be unbearable, make sure to only wear clothing made from light fabrics such as cotton. Also, make sure to stay hydrated by drinking tons of water. Before heading outside, bring an umbrella for UV ray protection and put on sunscreen to protect your skin.


Traffic news: Uber stops its operations, while DOTr strictly implements MRT rules



Uber has officially stopped its operations in the country last April 16 following orders from the Land Transportation Franchising and Regulatory Board (LTFRB). The company has entered in a merger with Grab, and even as Uber has closed, the deal is still undergoing review by authorities [2].

Meanwhile, for commuters taking the Metro Rail Transit (MRT), make sure to behave. The Department of Transportation (DOTr) announced that they will press civil criminal charges against riders who will disrupt train operations [3]. Prohibited actions include leaning or forcibly opening the doors.


Travel Updates



PAL adds new flights to tourists spots

Major airline companies anticipate a slow down on tourism now that Boracay, one of the most sought-after destinations in the country, will be closed for six months. To compensate, Philippine Airlines (PAL) announced that they will be increasing their flights to other tourist spots in the country such as Siargao, Coron, Camiguin, and Butuan. Under the plan, PAL will also prioritize their new hubs in Davao, Cebu, and Clark by increasing flights to the said areas [4].


NAIA prepares for summer

The Ninoy Aquino International Airport (NAIA) is now ready for summer vacationers. In a press release, they announced that they have taken the necessary precautions to ensure that they are well-equipped in accommodating customers this season. Besides having the capacity to assist the expected influx of customers, they also repaired defective coils and installed stand-alone air conditioner units at NAIA Terminal 3. [5]


Cebu Pacific secures IATA accreditation

Meanwhile, Cebu Pacific secured an International Air Transport Association (IATA) operational safety accreditation after fully complying with the Operational Safety Audit. IATA’s accreditation is considered as one of the highest standards for safety in the airline industry [6].
