PAL Takes Hajj Flight Again

28 July 2016

After almost ten years of hiatus service, flag carrier Philippine Airlines (PAL) has agreed to ferry special flights to the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia to serve the travel needs of Muslims taking part in the Hajj pilgrimage to Mecca on August 15 – 24, 2016 with mono-class Airbus A330-300 aircraft.

PAL President and COO Jaime J. Bautista said, “We are heeding the clamor of our Muslim brothers and sisters for a convenient link to a destination in the Middle East which will serve as their gateway to Mecca. PAL looks forward to be their official carrier as they fulfill this annual religious tradition.”

Special PAL flight to the KSA shall depart from Manila non-stop to Medina, from where pilgrims will travel to Mecca (KSA) , Islam’s holiest city. Return services will fly from Jeddah via Dubai to Manila.

  1. How about Hajj flights between Davao and Medina. It's good for Filipino Muslims in Mindanao. And also, it can prevent Muslims in Mindanao make stopovers in congested NAIA.
