Philippine Airlines resumes flights from Manila to Damman
Philippine Airlines has resumed flights from Manila (MNL) to Dammam (DMM) in Saudi Arabia for the first time in over a decade. On 3 December the airline began thrice-weekly flights on the 7,460-kilometre sector, on which it will compete against Saudi Arabian Airlines, who also serve the market with thrice-weekly flights. The first A330-300 flight into Dammam carried 216 passengers, while the first return flight had 367 people on-board. The airline last served the route in August 2001. Last week Philippine Airlines resumed flights from Manila to Riyadh.
