Said PAL stewardess when PAL landed in Perth, “Thanks to everyone, it was a safe welcome flight to Perth.”


The launching of flights in Darwin, Brisbane and Perth are parts of  PAL’s “route expansion” which  saw additional six (6) PAL destinations in  Australia, China and the Middle East.


Last March 6, PAL president Ramon S. Ang said PAL’s new destinations are Kuala Lumpur (May 1); Brisbane, Darwin and Perth in Australia and Guangzhou, China (June 1); and Abu Dhabi, United Arab Emirates (October 1).


Ang said PAL is launching the new routes in response to the clamor for more flights to these destinations. “Australia, Kuala Lumpur and Guangzhou are major destinations for business and leisure. Abu Dhabi, on the other hand, has a large concentration of OFWs, making it a prime destination in the Middle East,” he explained.


Previous announcement said Manila-Darwin (PR 221), departs Manila every Monday, Wednesday and Saturday at 10:05PM and arrives Darwin at 4:00AM (next day); Manila-Brisbane (via Darwin) follows the same departure schedule but arrives in Brisbane at 9:20AM (next day). Manila-Perth (PR 219 via Darwin) leaves Manila every Tuesday, Thursday, Friday and Sunday at 10:25PM and arrives in Perth at 7:50AM (next day).


The addition of six new routes brings to 34 PAL’s total number of international destinations (including Manila). Aside from route expansion, fleet modernization and inflight service enhancements are the three pillars of growth earlier identified by Ang.
