MANILA, Philippines – The low cost unit of Philippine Airlines (PAL) is increasing its Dubai flights by the end of this month.
In a statement, PAL Express said it would fly 6 times weekly to Dubai from Manila starting March 30. It would fly to the Middle Eastern country using its Airbus 330-300 aircraft everyday, except Thursday.
The additional flight would cater to growing passenger demand. Dubai is a major destination for overseas Filipino workers.
PAL Express also announced that it would temporarily land at the Al Maktoum International Airport (airport code: DWC) beginning May to give way to the refurbishment of the runway of the Dubai International Airport (airport code: DXB).
DWC is less than 45 minutes away from DXB and the emirate’s tourist and commercial districts. Arriving passengers at DWC can take the RTA bus to IBN Battuta Metro Station, which easily connects to Dubai’s Metro Rail System. PAL Express said it would resume landing at DXB on July 20.
