Philippine Airlines (PAL) on Monday said it is expanding Iloilo services by relaunching routes from Iloilo to Cebu and General Santos City as well as Davao next month.
The expanded route network will increase connectivity between Visayas and Mindanao just in time for the peak holiday season, enabling more people to reunite with families in their home provinces.
Beyond the holidays, the new flights will help foster economic recovery as various parts of Visayas and Mindanao reopen for business and tourism.
“As travel restrictions ease, we are happy to reopen these prime routes to and from Iloilo City just in time to host more passengers this coming Christmas season,” Harry Inoferio, PAL senior assistant vice president for Philippine sales, said.
Inoferio said the new routes will help the airline in the urgent task of reviving domestic tourism.
“We also hope to restore more of our pre-pandemic routes and mount new services in the coming months, while strictly adhering to the latest health and safety protocols set by all Local Government Units (LGUs) involved,” he added.
