PHILIPPINE AIRLINES (PAL) is adding more flights between Manila and Melbourne in June, after seeing strong passenger traffic on the route.

In a statement, the flag carrier said it will operate five weekly Manila-Melbourne frequencies beginning June 1, from the current thrice weekly service.

“Passenger loads between Melbourne and Manila have been consistently in the high 80s, while Sydney-Manila has been in the high 80s to 90s since we utilized the A330 tri-class for the equally popular route,” PAL Vice-President for Sales Ryan T. Uy was quoted as saying in a statement.

PR207 leaves Manila every Wednesday and Friday at 4:45 p.m. and arrives in Melbourne at 3 a.m. local time the following day. The return flight PR208 departs Melbourne every Thursday and Saturday at 5:40 a.m. local time and arrives in Manila at 10:55 a.m. on the same day.

PR209 departs Manila at 9:10 p.m. on Tuesdays, Thursdays and Saturdays, and lands in Melbourne at 8:30 a.m. local time the following day. On Wednesdays, Fridays and Sundays, PR210 leaves Melbourne at 10:15 a.m. local time and touches down in Manila at 3:30 p.m. on the same day.

PAL, which recently received a four-star certification from air transport rating organization Skytrax, is also shifting to a thrice weekly non-stop service between Manila and Brisbane starting March 28.

PR221 will leave Manila at 11:30 p.m. every Wednesday, Friday and Saturday, and will land in Brisbane at 9:20 a.m. local time the following day. PR222 will depart Brisbane every Thursdays, Saturdays and Sundays at 11 a.m. local time and arrive in Manila at 5 p.m. on the same day.
