Flag-carrier Philippine Airlines (PAL) will soon launch its newest domestic routes that aim to bridge key points within and across various regions to address the need for connectivity through air transport.
PAL on Thursday said the new routes, linking Visayas and Mindanao, will not only connect nearby cities but provide passengers fast, convenient and safe air travel.
Starting on March 29, PAL will have daily flights from Cebu to Cagayan de Oro, and Cebu to Davao, as well as four weekly flights from Cebu to Butuan, and Iloilo to General Santos.
PAL will use Airbus A320s to open these inter-domestic flights.
The airline said it is also opening routes to establish links within the Visayas with daily flights between Tacloban and Cebu, Cebu and Iloilo, as well as thrice-weekly flights between Cebu and Bacolod.
PAL added that it will have three flights a week between Zamboanga and Davao cities.
It is also set to operate thrice weekly flights from Manila to Tablas on March 20, the largest of the islands that comprise Romblon province, the country’s marble capital known for its pristine beaches and marine sanctuaries.
Ferryboat services connect Tablas Island and Caticlan.
The Q-300 is the opening fleet for the new PAL Manila-Tablas service, the airline said.
