Philippine Airlines has launched some short-term promotional fares on flights to key destinations in Southeast Asia and China, as the flag carrier ramps up its services for the busy summer travel period.
Round-trip fares for Singapore and Bangkok have been slashed to $115 (for travel until April 30) while return flights to Jakarta are now only $88 (for travel until November 30).
All fares are applicable only on PAL’s newly introduced late-night flights to the three points, which are among the most popular tourist destinations in Asia.
The new frequencies were recently added to PAL’s summer timetable, which boasts augmented services to most major international and domestic points.
The $115 round-trip promo fare is valid on the following flights:
– PR 505, which departs Manila everyday at 7:35 p.m. and arrives in Singapore at 11:15 p.m., and PR 506, which departs Singapore at 12:15 a.m. and arrives back in Manila at 4:00 a.m.; and
– PR 732, which departs Manila every Tuesday, Wednesday, Friday and Sunday at 7:30 p.m. and arrives in Bangkok at 9:50 p.m., and PR 733, which departs Bangkok on the same days at 11:10 p.m. and arrives back in Manila at 3:40 a.m. the following day.
On the other hand, the $88 round-trip special fare between Manila and Jakarta covers the following flights:
– PR 535, which departs Manila every Tuesday, Friday and Sunday at 9:00 p.m. and arrives in Jakarta at midnight; and the return service, PR 536, which departs Jakarta every Wednesday, Saturday and Monday at 12:50 a.m. and arrives in Manila at 5:45 a.m.
All other PAL flights to the three destinations follow a different fare structure.
Meanwhile, to mark its recently launched services to Chongqing and Chengdu in southwestern China, PAL is offering an introductory round-trip fare of $88 to either point until November 30, 2008.
