PAL announces new routes to Asia and Europe with 99-peso seat sale



National carrier PAL is launching new routes from Manila to three Asian destinations and is also looking to increase services to Europe.

On March 31, PAL will launch four weekly flights from the capital to Hanoi in Vietnam. Then, the next day, it will start flying five times weekly to Phnom Penh in Cambodia.

At a press conference in Manila City yesterday (Tuesday, January 8), PAL president and CEO Jaime Bautista said: 

“India is the air travel growth market of the future and a new economic power. So our link to Delhi improves the Philippines’ connectivity with the global economy.

“We are enthusiastic about our New Delhi route because, for the first time, we have the right-sized aircraft for the Indian market.” He clarified that the route would be served by Airbus A321neos. 

At the same press conference, Mr Bautista said the company was also looking to new destinations in Europe.

“Our planning department is completing a study of flying to either Paris or Rome, or Munich, or Frankfurt, but no definite decision yet,” he said.

“It’s still a work in progress. We have not made any decision yet, but we continue to study the possibility of operating to another destination in Europe.”

He also announced increased flight frequencies to 13 destinations this year. These are:

Cebu-Nagoya, from 4 times a week to daily

Manila-Osaka (nonstop),  from 7 to 11 weekly flights

Manila-Bangkok, from 21 to 25 weekly flights

Manila-Kuala Lumpur, from 7 to 11 weekly flights

Manila-Jakarta, from 7 to 10 weekly flights

Manila-Los Angeles, from 14 to 17 times weekly

Manila-San Francisco, from 10 to 14 times weekly

Manila-New York, from 5 times a week to daily flights

Manila-Toronto, from 5 times a week to daily flights

Manila-Sydney, from 7 to 9 weekly flights

Manila-Brisbane, from 4 to 5 weekly flights

Manila-Taipei, from 10 to 14 weekly flights

Manila-Doha, from 4 to 5 weekly flights

Meanwhile, PAL has launched a New Year Sale for both local and international destinations, with one-way base fares starting at 99 pesos.

The sale started on Monday and will run until Sunday, January 13. Flights covered by the promo fares are from January 21 to November 30.
