Etihad Airways and Emirates have announced the suspension of its flights to Manila, Philippines. It will be imposed from May 15 to 31. 

The decision was made following the decision of the Philippines government to restrict entry to "all travellers from Oman and the UAE". 

"Filipino citizens who are part of the government repatriation programme" will be exempt from this rule.

Etihad said it will "continue to operate flights to Manila carrying transiting passengers from non-restricted countries and flights from Manila with passengers travelling to Abu Dhabi and across our network".

"These passengers will be subject to acceptance and quarantine conditions," the statement from the airline said, adding, "Etihad is working closely with impacted guests to notify them of the changes to their itineraries."

Emirates Airline said: "Passengers whose journey originates from the UAE, including Filipino nationals, will not be accepted for travel to all points in the Philippines."

Harry Roque, the Philippines' presidential spokesperson announced on Thursday that all travellers from the UAE and Oman will not be allowed entry until May 31.
