THE Philippine Consulate General in Macau SAR successfully conducted its 26th repatriation mission from Macau carrying 191 Filipinos back home to the Philippines in time for the Christmas holidays. With the flight, the Consulate has brought a total of 5,152 Filipinos back home to the Philippines since the onset of the Covid-19 pandemic in early 2020.
Philippine Consul General to Macau SAR, Porfirio M. Mayo, Jr., led the Consulate’s Team at the airport to assist passengers on the flight. He told the passengers, “Masaya po kami na makakapiling ninyo ang inyong pamilya ngayong Pasko.”
Among those who joined the repatriation flight is a 44-year old male patient whose medical condition required him to fly home as a stretcher case. Another Filipino who joined the flight is a 75-year old lady whose case was endorsed to the Consulate by immigration authorities.
Consul General Mayo thanked the Government of Macau SAR, particularly the Government Headquarters Affairs Bureau, the Public Security Police Force – Immigration Department, the Civil Aviation Authority of Macau, and the Macau Health Bureau for their cooperation and assistance in making all repatriation flights to date a success.
Mayo likewise thanked Philippine Airlines (PAL) and China Travel Services (CTS) for facilitating the repatriation flights. “The Consulate’s repatriation program will not be possible without your help,” said Consul General Mayo.
