Philippine Airlines today announced the launching of new flights to China.
Its newest destination on March 29 is Jinjiang, a city located in Fujian province. The city, known for its foreign-owned factories in the clothing and footwear industry, has seen the rise of migrant workers in recent years.
PAL President and Chief Operating Officer Jaime J. Bautista said, “A large number of Chinese – Filipinos trace their roots to the city of Jinjiang. In response to the clamor for links to and from the Chinese city, the flag carrier is launching the new route.”
