More flights to China from Philippine Airlines

Philippine Airlines has announced that from the 25th March 2018 it will increase the number of flights it operates to China.

The airline said today that from March it will increase the number of flights it offers from 99 to 103 a week. Part of the aim of the increase is to encourage more Chinese tourists to come to the Philippines, the airline advises.  "In support of the national campaign targeting 2 million annual Chinese tourist arrivals, Philippine Airlines is ramping up operations to China by increasing flight frequency on existing routes and opening up new destinations in China." the company said.

"The spike is due to the shift to daily Manila- Jinjiang and Manila-Guangzhou services from the current five times weekly on each route," the statement continues,  "These numbers are expected to continue surging in 2018 as PAL further expands flights in the coming months from new Chinese cities: the industrial mega-city of Tianjin in northern China, the commercial trading center of Shenzhen in the Pearl River Delta, and the southern city of Nanning that hosts the annual China-ASEAN Expo,"
