Philippine Airlines to Boost Australian Services
Philippine Airlines will increase its Australian services and operate non-stop flights from both Sydney and Melbourne under a new schedule to be introduced at the end of next month.
From October 28, Philippine Airlines will increase its flights to Manila from five to seven per week - four from Sydney and three from Melbourne. All flights will be non-stop in both directions, ending the current triangular service between the three cities.
Already offering more direct flights to Manila than any other carrier, Philippine Airlines will provide even greater capacity with its dedicated services for both Sydney and Melbourne travellers.
Flights from Sydney (PR212) will operate on Mondays, Tuesdays, Thursdays and Saturdays, departing 9.45am, while flights from Melbourne (PR210) will operate on Wednesdays, Fridays and Sundays, departing 9.50am.
All flights will be operated by the airline's modern flagship Boeing 777-300ER aircraft, offering the latest features including lie-flat beds in business class and seat-back entertainment systems throughout all cabins.
The B777 has met with enthusiastic response among regular travellers since its deployment on Sydney and Melbourne routes in June. It is larger, more spacious and more fuel-efficient than other aircraft used on Australian services.
As Asia's first carrier, Philippine Airlines offers the comfort and convenience of a full-service airline with an expanding network of destinations throughout the Philippines and across Asia, the Pacific and the Middle East.
