Direct Flight Commences November 28
September 1, 2012
Flag carrier Philippine Airlines is re-introducing flight to Toronto direct from Manila starting November 28, 2012, says PAL president Ramon S. Ang.
PAL recently obtained authority from Canadian government to fly to Toronto, amidst FAA restriction down south of the border.
Toronto is Canada's largest City with a population of 2.6 million.
PAL will fly from Manila to Toronto thrice a week every Monday, Wednesday, and Friday, using its latest plane, the Boeing 777-300ER. Meanwhile, Vancouver will have its frequency reduce pending negotiations with Canada's Department of Transport for additional entitlements to the west coast good for daily flights.
Vancouver will have direct flights four times a week every Tuesday, Thursday, Saturday and Sunday via Boeing 777-300ER from Manila while flights to Las Vegas will fly direct starting November 2012 thrice a week using Airbus 340-300 planes.
Ang also said that they will introduce premium economy seating and full-flat seats in its business class section of its upcoming 777 and 330s. The Boeing 777 is intended for long-haul routes while Airbus 330 will be the airline's backbone in regional routes.
