Starting June 28, flag carrier Philippine Airlines (PAL) will fly daily to London Heathrow (LHR).
PAL President Jaime Bautista said that “positive performance of our flights to and from London can be attributed to the direct service, competitive pricing and the on-board offerings. Having daily flights will provide passengers taking the Manila-London route the flexibility to choose the schedule most suitable to their travel plans.”
PAL relaunched direct flights to LHR in September 2013. After two years, PAL increased its flights to 5 times per week.
With the daily service, PAL said travelers have the chance to fly from London to Manila, then visit any of the domestic and international destinations the flag carrier flies to.
Starting June 28, flight PR721 will depart London daily at 22:50, arriving in Manila at 19:50 pm local time. The return leg, PR720, will leave Manila at 1:20 pm and arrive back to London at 9 pm.
This announcement comes after PAL placed an order of 6 Airbus A350-900 planes in a $1.85 billion deal with the European plane maker for long-haul flights.
