Philippine Airlines resumed flights to Abu Dhabi (AUH) from Manila (MNL) after a 15-year gap. The airline will operate the route five times weekly using A330-300s, configured with 414 seats across two classes, though the inaugural flight appears to have been operated using an A340. Ramon S. Ang, President and COO of Philippines Airlines, said: “We have returned to Abu Dhabi after an absence of more than 15 years to serve the large Filipino community in the United Arab Emirates. Our new airplanes will complement the warm and gracious in-flight service that will hopefully earn the support and patronage of travellers to and from Abu Dhabi.” Competition is provided by Etihad Airways who already operate flights on the route twice-daily.
