Bookings for Philippine Airlines in the UK increased by 87 per cent in January compared to the same month in 2017.
In September 2017, Philippine Airlines launched a new aircraft – the B777-300ER – from London to Manila, which since December resumed a daily service.
This aircraft not only provides greater comfort for passengers, with generous seat pitches (78 inches in business and 34 inches in economy), improved entertainment facilities and upgraded menus, but it has increased available capacity for the airline with 328 seats available in economy and 42 available in business.
David Cochrane, country manager, UK & Ireland, Philippine Airlines, said: “Not only have customers been attracted to the increased facilities and service levels offered by the new B777-300ER aircraft, but Philippine Airlines ticket prices are fantastically competitive and the resumed daily service and reconfigured 2018 timetables have improved onward connections, significantly providing travel time savings for passengers originating in London travelling across Asia and beyond.
“For the next six months, the airline is seeing very strong demand, for Bali, Australia, New Zealand, the Philippines, Hong Kong and Japan.”
