PAL to Start Heathrow-Manila Non-Stop Flights from November

British travellers who are often found to b eon a quest for tickets on cheap flights between Philippines and the UK have yet another reason to smile. Philippines’ national carrier, PAL is all set to offer tickets aboard direct non-stop flights connecting UK’s capital city of London to Philippines’ colourful capital of Manila.

Philippine Airlines was banned by the European Union in 1998. And KLM remains the only European carrier that offers tickets on direct flights to the Philippines presently. But PAL is now all geared up to restart its operations to Europe. 

The airline is expected to offer tickets on direct, non-stop flights between London Heathrow and Philippines’ capital city of Manila with effect from November 4, 2013. The carrier is expected to deploy B777-300ERs aircrafts for its new route. These aircraft will be configured in two cabin classes so that the airline may offer tickets for 42 business class seats and 328 economy class seats aboard its latest European service.  

PAL is planning to offer air tickets for five weekly services. The move will provide the fastest air travel to London as well as convenient connections from the capital city of the UK to top tourist spots in Philippines and various destinations in Southeast Asia, Japan, South Korea and Australia. 

These direct, non-stop flights will depart Manila just after 0800 to offer an early afternoon arrival into London Heathrow the same day. The return service is expected to depart London in the late afternoon or early evening to provide a lunchtime or mid-afternoon arrival back in Manila.
