PAL brings 300,000 Filipinos closer to home


New Australian routes launched
In its continued promise to bring Filipinos from all over the world closer to home, while boosting the country’s tourism, Philippine Airlines opened new direct routes to Australia on June 1.

Known as the “Land Down Under,” Australia is apparently home to around 300,000 Filipinos, and is currently the sixth biggest source of tourists to the Philippines. The new destinations, Brisbane, Perth, and Darwin, are the latest additions to the flag carrier’s Australian routes, which already include Sydney and Melbourne.

The new frequencies, which will boost PAL’s total seat capacity to 7,400 weekly to these new points, effectively make it the most active Philippine carrier plying the Manila-Australia-Manila route.

The new flights also augur well for Filipino travelers to Australia, as well as the 15,000 Australian expatriates living in the Philippines.
