21 October 2015

Flag carrier Philippine Airlines (PAL) is celebrating its 50th year in Australia by boosting flight services between Sydney and Manila.

PAL first flew to Sydney in October 6, 1965 on state-of-the-art DC-8 aircraft twice a week. The route has since grown covering Melbourne, Brisbane, Darwin, and in December soon Cairns which flight services will be extending to Auckland in New Zealand.

“A daily frequency with a choice of departure and arrival times provides our passengers the flexibility to seamlessly connect to many cities on our domestic and international network,” explained PAL President & Chief Operating Officer Jaime J. Bautista.

“Upon arrival in Manila, Australian business and leisure travelers 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 and international points,” he added.

The morning flight from Sydney will connect flights towards London, re-activating the once Kangaroo network it once flew.

From October 25, flights depart Manila at 10:05 p.m. via PR 211 every Tuesday, Thursday, Friday and Saturday, arriving Sydney at 9:30 a.m. (AUS time) the following day. London will be connected to this flight via PR 721 which depart London Heathrow at 10:50 p.m. arriving Manila at 7:30 p.m. equivalent to three hours lay over time.

PR 213 departs Manila at 11 a.m. every Monday, Wednesday and Sunday, arriving Sydney at 10:25 p.m. (AUS time).

Flights from Sydney depart at 6:10 a.m. (AUS time) every Monday, Tuesday and Thursday via PR 214 arriving in Manila at 11:25 a.m. This flight connects to London via PR 720 departing at 01:00 p.m. arriving the British capital at 8:55 p.m.
