PAL starts direct flights to Auckland on Dec.6
Philippine Airlines will launch non-stop flights between Manila and Auckland starting Dec. 6 this year.
This means travel time to Auckland will be reduced to 10 hours from the current 12.15 hours.
PAL will be using its twin-aisle dual class 254-seater A340s from its single-aisle 156-seater A320s thus increasing capacity by 60 percent.
Passengers arriving in Manila from Auckland can conveniently connect to PAL’s domestic and international network such as Manila-London, Asia, North America and the Middle East.
