Philippine Airlines (PAL) will re-launch its business class service to Dubai on June 16 and this is for meeting the increased demand for premium leisure and corporate travel market among locals and expatriates in the region.
The daily business class service will commence from June 16 at an introductory rate of Dh2,850 ($775.7), all inclusive, coinciding with the celebration of Philippine Independence Week.
Features and benefits include 20.6-inch-wide seat which converts into full-flat bed, access to airport business class lounges, 64-kilo baggage allowance (32kg x 2 pcs), seven kilo hand carry allowance, in-flight entertainment, free on board wifi (MyPAL Player, myPAL Mobile and myPAL wifi enabled) and a business travel kit. PAL will fly its 368-seater, A330 aircraft with 18 seats for business class with a direct aisle access through a 1-2-1 seat layout. The flights leave Dubai at 5:25 am and arrive in Manila at 6:25pm.
Abu Dhabi, Kuwait, Riyadh, Jeddah and Damman will also have business class flights in the next three months.
Another factor that led to the re-launch of business class flights is President Rodrigo Duterte’s recent trip to GCC during which he was able to secure over $925 million in possible new investments for the Philippines.
PAL has been servicing the Middle East for 38 years since 1979 through flights in Bahrain, followed by Dahran, Saudi Arabia. PAL flies to 30 domestic and 44 international destinations.
