Metro Manila (CNN Philippines, February 29) — A few airlines have called off flights to South Korea following the Philippine government's move to ban travel for tourists to the East Asian country over the spike of coronavirus (COVID-19) cases there.

Cebu Pacific said the cancellations begin from March 3 to April 30. Passengers may rebook to February 29, March 1 and March 2 depending on the availability of seats.
