Philippine Airlines (PAL) and Emirates have expanded their interline agreement, enabling Emirates’ passengers to access domestic points in Philippine Airlines’ network via Cebu and Clark, adding to the current interline connections via Manila.
PAL passengers may also fly via Dubai to connect to destinations on Emirates’ network, such as cities in Europe, Africa, and other parts of the Middle East.
Emirates’ passengers can enjoy a convenient booking process to destinations in PAL’s network including Bacolod, Butuan, Cagayan De Oro, Davao, Iloilo, Caticlan and Puerto Princesa via Cebu; as well as Cebu, Caticlan and Busuanga via Clark.
PAL passengers can also book Emirates-operated flights to Amman, Birmingham, Cape Town, Dammam, Dublin, Lisbon, Manchester, Muscat, and Riyadh via Dubai.
In addition, PAL has also signed a memorandum of understanding (MoU) with ENGIE, a global leader in low-carbon energy and services, to help the airline manage its resources more efficiently.
The MoU will specifically address four key areas of exploration and collaboration – energy risk management services, carbon credits procurement and supply, decarbonisation strategies, and decarbonisation projects related to low-carbon mobility, onsite renewable energy production, district cooling infrastructure, energy performance management and the exploration of topics around sustainable aviation fuel (SAF).
Stanley Ng, president & chief operating officer, PAL, said: “Philippine Airlines is focused strongly on connecting the Philippines to markets around the world via our network of non-stop flights. Having ENGIE as a key partner helps us manage our resources more efficiently and work towards a more sustainable world in air travel, for the benefit of our economy and the traveling public.”
