In a kick-off ceremony at Diamond Hotel, Ang unveiled the 12 new destinations – Kuala Lumpur (Malaysia), May 2; Darwin, Brisbane and Perth (Australia), June 1; Guangzhou (China), June 2; Abu Dhabi (United Arab Emirates), October 1; Doha (Qatar) November 1; Riyadh, Jeddah and Dammam (Saudi Arabia), December 1; Dubai (United Arab Emirates), November 1 and Basco, Batanes on May 1 (the last two to be operated by PAL Express).
Ang said PAL’s route expansion, particularly in the Middle East, will open strategic gateways and allow greater connectivity to more destinations in the region through PAL’s interline partners. “From UAE, for example, overseas Filipino workers can easily connect to other key cities or countries through PAL’s airline partners in the Gulf,” Ang stressed.
With the opening of its Middle East gateways, PAL would become the only Philippine carrier with the widest footprint in the region, he said.READ MORE
