New flights to Australia are to be launched by Philippine Airlines in March next year.The carrier, founded in 1941, is to increase its services between Manila and Australia to seven times a week as demand from passengers rises.

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.”
