Amidst public demand for direct non-stop flights from Asian destinations to the Philippines’ Central Visayas Region, flag carrier Philippine Airlines has opened a thrice weekly Bangkok-Cebu service last December 3.
Free baggage allowance and new inflight meals are among the offerings passengers will enjoy on board the 3.45 hour journey. Passengers may also enjoy music, movies and TV shows through their mobile devices by simply downloading the myPAL Player app before their flight.
The new flights are utilizing PAL’s 156-seater Airbus A320 which has Business and Economy seats.
