Flag carrier Philippine Airlines recently boosted services between Manila and Sydney by shifting to daily flights from five weekly frequencies
Starting October 25, 2015, flights depart Manila at 10:05PM via PR 211 every Tuesday, Thursday, Friday and Saturday, arriving Sydney at 9:30AM (AUS time) the following day. PR 213 departs Manila at 11AM every Monday, Wednesday and Sunday, arriving Sydney at 10:25PM (AUS time).
Flights from Sydney depart at 6:10AM (AUS time) every Monday, Tuesday and Thursday via PR 214 arriving in Manila at 11:25AM. During the rest of the week - Wednesday, Friday, Saturday and Sunday - flights from Sydney depart at 11:15AM (AUS time) via PR 212, arriving in Manila at 4:30PM.
PAL President & Chief Operating Officer Jaime J. Bautista said, “A daily frequency with a choice of departure and arrival times provides our passengers the flexibility to seamlessly connect to many cities on PAL’s domestic and international network.”
“Upon arrival in Manila, Australian business and leisure travellers can enjoy a Manila stopover for several days or make a same-day connection on PAL flights to the many travel spots within the Philippine archipelago,” he added.
The flag carrier celebrated the 50th anniversary of its Sydney operations last October. PAL’s Manila – based and Australia-based officials led a set of anniversary activities to celebrate one of PAL’s longest – running operations, which began on October 6, 1965.
Aside from Sydney, PAL’s presence in Australia covers Darwin, Brisbane and Melbourne. Flights to Cairns and Auckland, which will be launched in December this year, marks the expansion of PAL flights in the Oceania region.
