Suspended earlier to take route assessment initiatives, Philippine Airlines will resume flights between Abu Dhabi and Manila from Oct 31.
Effective October 31, 2017, the Philippine Airlines will resume its non-stop thrice weekly service between Abu Dhabi to Manila to cope with the ever-increasing demand. In May 2017, the airline had announced temporary suspension of its service on the route to pave way for ‘route assessment initiatives’.
The airline will resume its PR656/657 flights on their same schedule as before, on Tuesdays, Thursdays and Saturdays. PR656 will depart from Manila at 11.45 am and arrive in Abu Dhabi at 5.45 pm and PR657 will leave Abu Dhabi at 7.30 pm and land in Manila at 8.50 am the next day. The largest Filipino carrier serving the UAE market also announced that by the end of the year, passengers of these flights can enjoy Business Class seats. The bi-class service (business and economy) will be available across all the Middle East routes, providing passengers on board amenities and free baggage allowance.
