Philippine Airlines (PAL) is gearing up for two consecutive long weekends, when the country celebrates both Christian and Muslim holidays.
Thousands of passengers are expected to flock to the country’s airports this coming weekend to get away for All Saints Day and All Souls Day on 1-2 November. A similar passenger influx is expected the following weekend for Eid’l Adha, which will see a public holiday on 7 November.
To cater for the extra traffic, PAL is increasing frequencies to 11 domestic and two international destinations. More flights will be added on routes from Manila to the Philippine hubs of Bacolod, Cagayan de Oro, Cebu, Cotabato, Davao, Dumaguete, Iloilo, Kalibo, Ozamiz, Tagbilaran and Zamboanga, as well as Hong Kong and Singapore.
