Manila - Auckland Non-Stop For Philippine Airlines

Philippine Airlines will be making a major change on flights to New Zealand's 'City of Sails from December this year.  The airline is to start a direct non-stop flight to Auckland from Manila from 6th December on on of its Airbus A340 aircraft. 

The non-stop service will operate three times a week - Wednesday, Thursday and Sunday - departing Manila at 11.15pm, arriving Auckland at 2.05pm local time the following day.  The return leaves Auckland every Friday, Saturday and Tuesday at 12.30 local time and touches down in Manila at 5.45am.

Using the two class A340 on a direct non-stop flight will cut the journey time between the two cities to just 10 hours and gives passengers arriving in Manila from Auckland easy connections to PAL's domestic and international network.  Including flights to London, Asia, North America and the Middle East.

PAL currently operate to Auckland via Cairns, Australia utilizing an A320 aircraft. This service will continue until 5th December and then be replaced by the direct service. PAL say any passengers that are already booked on the service via Cairns after the 6th December will automatically be accommodated on the new direct flight.
