Philippine Airlines (PAL) and Emirates have teamed up to improve flight connectivity for passengers of both air carriers using a single ticket and a common baggage policy for new points on each other’s networks via Manila and Dubai.
The partnership will provide Emirates’ passengers access to 19 Philippine domestic destinations operated by PAL, including Cotabato, Davao, Iloilo, Kalibo and more, as well as two Asian regional points via Manila.
PAL’s passengers will benefit from access to Emirates’ global network and seamlessly connect to 21 cities operated by Emirates including Cairo, Frankfurt, Casablanca and London via Dubai.
PAL currently has daily flights between Manila and Dubai, while Emirates has 25 weekly operations in Manila, Cebu and Clark.
Bud Britanico, vice president, sales, PAL commented: “We are happy to embark on this new interline partnership with Emirates that expands the choices available to Philippine Airlines passengers, who now gain easier access to more destinations across Europe, the Middle East, India and Africa via our flights to Dubai.”
“The partnership with Philippine Airlines will help open new links for trade and tourism that will drive more inbound traffic into the Philippines, and expand Emirates’ footprint in East Asia,” said Adnan Kazim, chief commercial officer, Emirates.
