Philippine Airlines offers cheaper fares for Southeast Asian destinations

Philippine Airlines (PAL) is bringing down further its fares. It announced Wednesday that a round-trip fare to Bangkok, Singapore and Jakarta will cost only $118 for ticketing until October 31.

While the reduced rate is valid on all PAL flights between Manila and Bangkok, only specific flights to Singapore (PR 501/PR 502 and PR 505 / PR 506) and Jakarta (PR 535 / PR 536) are covered by the promo.

The Bangkok promo is valid for travel until November 25 while for Singapore and Jakarta, travel must be completed by December 5, 2008.

A companion promotion is also being offered for Mabuhay Class service to Jakarta. For a special rate of $550 on the late-evening and early morning flights PR 535 / PR 536, the traveler enjoys business-class service at a hefty discount over the regular fare.

This promo fare is available for both ticketing and travel until March 31, 2009.
