Manila-based Filipino flag carrier group Philippine Airlines (PAL) has finalised its long-haul schedule for the period to 30 March.

PAL will fly twice a day between Manila and Los Angeles this winter.

Elsewhere in the US, the carrier will operate a daily service to San Francisco, and four times a week to New York’s Kennedy airport.

Manila-Guam will see daily flights, while Manila-Honolulu will be five-weekly.

In Canada, PAL will fly daily to Vancouver this winter, and twice a week to Toronto.

PAL notes that on its New York, Los Angeles and Toronto flights a stopover or payload restrictions may be required on certain days due to airspace or weather conditions.

In the Australasia region, the Filipino flag carrier will serve Sydney daily, and Melbourne and Brisbane five times a week each. The airline’s recently launched flights to Perth will operate thrice-weekly.

To Papua New Guinea, PAL will retain four-weekly rotations on Manila-Port Moresby.

In the Middle East, the carrier will fly to both Dammam and Doha from Manila fives times per week, and to Dubai and Riyadh daily.

PAL operates its Airbus A350-900 and Boeing 777-300ER aircraft on flights to North America, while its comparatively shorter routes to Australia and the Middle East see A330-300 aircraft deployed.

Going forward, PAL has finalised a purchase agreement with Airbus for nine larger A350-1000 long range aircraft. These will be able to accommodate 380 passengers in a three-class layout, with separate cabins for business class, premium economy and economy class (which will go ten-abreast on the –1000s compared to nine-abreast on the two current A350-900s in the fleet).
