Another list that proves nothing more than the number of flights.

Why not bring in the list sorted by passengers carried? What were you trying to proof?

PAL flies daily to Vancouver; boosts US, domestic services

MANILA – Philippine Airlines will ramp up services to major international and domestic destinations during the upcoming peak summer travel period, highlighted by the upgrading of its Vancouver service to a daily frequency and the addition of flights to local tourist hotspots Boracay and Busuanga.

From March 23, PAL will operate a direct flight to Vancouver every Monday and Wednesday, filling the only two days of the week when the service does not operate.

Unlike the other five days, however, the new service will not continue on to Las Vegas and will operate simply on a turnaround basis.

It injects much-needed capacity into PAL’s Vancouver route, the only direct link between Canada and the Philippines, and has long been sought by the sizeable Filipino migrant community in Canada as well as by the business and leisure segments of the market.

PR 116 departs Manila every Monday and Wednesday at 1:05 p.m., arriving in Vancouver at 10:20 a.m. the same day. The return service, PR 117, departs Vancouver at 1:00 p.m. and arrives in Manila at 5:50 p.m. the next day.

Widebody Airbus A340-300 aircraft, which seats 264 passengers in a bi-class layout, will continued to be deployed on the route.

The existing five-times-a-week service from Manila to Vancouver, onward to Las Vegas and vice-versa, operated every Tuesday, Thursday, Friday, Saturday and Sunday, will be maintained.

Meanwhile, PAL will add one weekly flight each to its popular trans-Pacific services to the U.S. West Coast gateways of Los Angeles and San Francisco for the duration of the summer.

An extra Airbus A340-300 flight will operate to Los Angeles every Friday from April 10 to June 19 while another A340-300 flight will serve San Francisco every Sunday from April 12 to June 21.

The additional flights increase total frequency to Los Angeles to ten times weekly and to San Francisco to eight times weekly for the summer.

In the domestic sector, the flag carrier’s low-fares, turbo-propeller unit PAL Express will mount more flights across its network of secondary domestic routes, particularly to island destinations that are huge tourist draws during the summer months.

From March 20, PAL Express will add one daily flight between Manila and Caticlan, gateway to the resort island of Boracay, boosting total frequency on the busy route to 11 flights daily.

On the same day, PAL Express will operate a second daily frequency between Manila and Busuanga, the largest of the Calamian group of islands in northern Palawan that host the country’s most exclusive beach resorts.

The new frequency is an afternoon service that complements the current morning flight. PR 033 departs Manila at 1:00 p.m. and arrives in Busuanga at 2:05 p.m. Return flight PR 034 departs Busuanga at 2:30 p.m. and arrives in Manila at 3:35 p.m.

PAL Express will also add two weekly flights between Cebu and Cagayan de Oro to increase total frequency to five times weekly.

Likewise, PAL will augment its regular jet services between Manila and Bacolod, Butuan, Cagayan de Oro, Iloilo, Kalibo, Legazpi, Puerto Princesa and Tacloban with additional flights of varying frequency throughout the summer season.

PAL adds local, foreign flights to attract more passengers this summer

MANILA, Philippines - Philippine Airlines (PAL) will serve more local and foreign routes to attract more passengers this summer.

Besides offering a daily service to Vancouver, the flag carrier controlled by liquor and tobacco tycoon Lucio Tan will also add more flights to and from tourist spots such as Boracay in the Visayas and Busuanga in Luzon.

Starting March 23, PAL will fly daily to Vancouver, including Monday and Wednesday, the carrier said in a statement. Previously, Mondays and Wednesdays were the only days in which PAL didn’t mount a flight to the Canadian city. These flights will utilize the entitlements the Philippines received during last year’s air talks with Canada.

Unlike flights mounted on five other days, the service will not proceed to Las Vegas but will immediately head back to Manila.

By increasing passenger capacity in the only direct flight between Canada and the Philippines, the route will accommodate more Filipino visitors to the North American country and at the same time, allow more Vancouver-based Filipinos to come home.

Flight PR 116 will depart Manila every Monday and Wednesday at 1:05 PM and arrive in Vancouver at 10:20 AM of the same day. The return flight – PR 117 – will leave Vancouver at 1:00 PM and arrive in Manila at 5:50 PM the next day.

Airbus A340-300 aircraft, which seats 264 passengers, will be used to serve the route.

The current five times a week service to Vancouver onward to Las Vegas and vice-versa every Tuesday, Thursday, Friday, Saturday, and Sunday will be kept.

Similarly, a weekly service will be added to PAL’s trans-Pacific flight to
to Los Angeles and San Francisco for the summer.

From April 10 to June 19, an extra Airbus A340-300 will fly to Los Angeles every Friday, bringing total flights to ten times a week.

The airline will also mount flights to San Francisco every Sunday from April 12 to June 21, bringing frequency to eight times weekly.

Does anybody know when PAL is going to get the first one 777-300ER?

Other question, about PR: Are they thinking to come back to serve some airports within the European Union? I mean, I find a bit odd Moscow can be the first city to be served by Philippine Airlines in Europe.

Yeah, I think the Philippines is the only former Spanish colony that doesn't get a direct link to a Spanish city. I really hope they introduce flights to Madrid or Barcelona.

Anyway, I think the most feasable EU city for PAL is London.

I'd like to see a MAD-MNL direct, but that is not going to happen anytime soon.

PR will fly before to LHR/LGW, AMS o FRA where there are many daily non-stop flights to MAD.

That's because of the distance and lack of direct business contacts between the two countries. As far leisure is concern, there are other world class destinations that is close to Europe and for this matter, Spain. Mediterranian destinations are a big market considering Spain is a destination for leisure travels in itself.

When I was travelling through France, I was surpised at the size of the Filipino community there. Would PR service to CDG be possible considering KLM/AF already offers the AMS-MNL route?

it is possible considering the number of filipinos across all europe. im thinking after the recession.

PAL now offers chartered flights to and fro moscow. this is a good start.

London, Rome and Milan would be the most feasible for PAL as of now.
