Philippine Airlines is flying back to Ozamiz City, Misamis Occidental, beginning June 16. PAL will use brand-new Airbus A319-100 on the route.
The daily Ozamiz service – PR 163 – departs Manila at 11:45, arriving Ozamiz 13:10. The return flight – PR 164 – leaves Ozamiz 13:50 to land in Manila at 15:15. Philippine Airline’s 134-seater A319-100 jet aircraft has eight Recaro seats in Mabuhay class where passengers are served hot meals.
Ozamiz City – PAL’s 19th destination in its domestic network – was first served by PAL in 1951 using the most reliable workhorse aircraft of that era, the DC-3.
Starting June 16, 2009, PAL will still honor Air Philippines tickets to Ozamiz after the low-cost carrier turns over its operations at Ozamiz to PAL. Air Philippines ticket-holders to Ozamiz should check-in at NAIA Terminal 2.
