The Manila International Airport Authority (MIAA) will set up screening requirements for passengers of chartered flights at Ninoy Aquino International Airport (NAIA).

MIAA has also asked operators of chartered flights to ensure passengers are going through the correct routine departure procedures, according to business.inquirer.net.

The move comes after five overseas Filipino workers (OFWs) booked on a chartered flight for East Timor were off-loaded due to discrepancies in their travel documents and overseas employment certificates (OECs).

Personnel of the NAIA Task Force Against Trafficking in Persons found two liaison officers at NAIA Terminal 1 carrying travel documents of the passengers booked on the chartered flight without the passengers themselves.

When interrogated, the two liaison officers handed over a request for special facilitation of the OFWs on the chartered flight.
