Emirates, Dubai’s flag-carrier airline, announced on Thursday that it had expanded its collaboration with Philippine Airlines (PAL).
Emirates customers will soon be able to book flights to several provinces in the Philippines via the Cebu and Clark airports. The initial scope of the interline agreement between the airline and PAL was limited to just the Manila airport.
Filipinos can fly from Dubai to any destination served by Philippine Airlines (PAL) by purchasing just one ticket. They can continue their journey to Bacolod, Butuan, Cagayan de Oro, Davao, Iloilo, Caticlan, and Puerto Princesa after passing through Cebu. When departing from Clark, they can access flights to Cebu, Caticlan, and Busuanga.
This is in addition to the 19 locations in the Philippines that these travelers can reach from Manila.
Passengers flying on PAL can use the extended interline agreement to book flights operated by Emirates to Amman, Birmingham, Cape Town, Dammam, Dublin, Lisbon, Manchester, Muscat, and Riyadh. These flights must originate in Dubai.
The Philippine national airline operates many flights every day between Manila and Dubai, making it possible to connect quickly and easily to destinations in Europe, Africa, and other regions of the Middle East. Because of how the process is set up, travelers can get their boarding permits and have their bags inspected at their final destination.
It is possible to book travel itineraries by visiting websites such as emirates.com and philippineairlines.com, using the Emirates and PAL mobile applications, or contacting travel agents both online and offline.
The expansion comes several months after Emirates and Philippine Airlines announced their interline agreement for the first time. This reaffirms the commitment of both airlines to fulfill expanding demand by giving travelers more choice and flexibility, as well as superior customer experiences.
Since 1990, Emirates has been providing air transportation to the Philippines. Currently, the airline runs 25 weekly flights to Manila, Cebu, and Clark. In addition, the airline is the only one in the market to provide a First-Class service for passengers flying to Manila, catering to the needs of premium travelers.
