Philippine Airlines in the UAE held a night of gratitude and recognition of their partners in their journey to achieve a good revenue over the past year. The full-fledged flag carrier of the Philippines was founded in 1941 and its UAE operations began in 1982, first serving Dubai on 7 August. It was part of a growing Middle East route network that also connected flights between Manila and Doha in Qatar, Riyadh and Dammam in Kingdom of Saudi Arabia. Today, Middle East has become one of the most important regions for Philippine Airlines and their collaboration with all stakeholders in the region promises a whole gamut of opportunities.

Over the years, travel agents have become the most important partners for Philippine Airlines. At a recent event in the UAE, titled ‘Mabuhay Night’, leading travel agents from across the UAE were invited to partake in celebrations on their journey to success over the past year. With travel once again hitting normal to exceeding levels, more travellers opt to explore destinations which they have not visited prior to the pandemic.

Josh Vasquez, Regional Head – EMEA Region, Philippine Airlines, said, “We are celebrating Philippine Airlines UAE Mabuhay Night, this is the second installment of this event, we will be recognising our top travel agents who have contributed to Philippine Airlines UAE passenger sales for 2023, we have also invited our Filipino community partners and our media friends.”
