New flights to Australia are to be launched by Philippine Airlines in March next year.
Under the new timetable, the Australia-Philippine service will consist of three evening flights, and four daytime flights. The new routes to Melbourne and Sydney routes will make use of Airbus 340-300 aircrafts.
At present, Philippine Airlines operates a five-times a week service to Australia, with four flights travelling via Sydney and Melbourne and a Sydney-only service.
Brett McDougall, general manager of Philippine Airlines, said: “Not only will the new flights offer the convenience of seven departures a week, they will also provide better connections for passengers looking to travel onwards to other Asian ports or fly domestically within the Philippines.”
