Philippine Airlines launches two new international routes
Philippine Airlines launched two new international routes in the last week. On 1 May, the airline connected its main base in Manila (MNL) with Denpasar (DPS), the airport serving the Indonesian island of Bali. Flights operate twice-weekly on the route that notably never has been served non-stop before. On 5 May, the Philippine national carrier expanded its network to South Korea as Kalibo (KLO) became its third airport to be connected with South Korea’s capital airport Seoul Incheon (ICN) after Manila and Cebu. Flights operate four times weekly in competition with ZestAir’s daily flights. Both of the two new routes launched by Philippine Airlines are operated with A320 aircraft.
