PAL, CebuPac Open New Local & International Routes

Filipino travel enthusiasts now have even more options to get to where they want to go. Both Philippine Airlines (PAL) and Cebu Pacific (CebPac) have announced new flight routes to a number of destinations.

Last week, PAL resumed its daily service to Kuala Lumpur after a three-year absence. The move comes after PAL and Malaysia Airlines expanded their code-sharing agreement, which also includes 12 domestic Malaysian destinations and nine domestic Philippine destinations.

Filipinos looking to visit Kuala Lumpur can take either one of the flights below:

  • PR 525 departs Manila every Monday, Wednesday, Friday and Sunday at 7:25 AM. It leaves Kuala Lumpur on the same days at 12:10 PM local time.
  • PR 527 leaves Manila on Tuesday, Thursday and Saturday at 11:30 AM. Meanwhile, PR528 departs Kuala Lumpur on the same days at 4:00 PM local time.

The local destinations included in PAL and Malaysia Airlines code-sharing agreement are:

  • Malaysia – Alor Setar, Johor Bahru, Kota Bharu, Kota Kinabalu, Kuala Terengganu, Kuching, Labuan (Sabah), Langkawi, Miri (Sarawak), Penang, Sibu (Sarawak), Tawau (Sabah).
  • Philippines – Bacolod, Cagayan de Oro, Cebu, Davao, General Santos, Iloilo, Kalibo, Puerto Princesa, Caticlan.

New CebPac Routes

Meanwhile, CebPac is opening five new routes late next month: Cebu to Masbate, Cagayan de Oro to Zamboanga, Davao to Dumaguete, Davao to Tacloban, and Cotabato to Zamboanga. Alongside the announcement of these new routes is the move to use larger aircraft from specific domestic routes.

CebPac will be using a 180-seater Airbus A320 for flights from Manila to Cauyan. They will also be using it for flights to Legazpi and Virac. Meanwhile, a 436-seater Airbus A330 will be used for its Cebu, Davao and Hong Kong routes by July 4.
