Cheap Philippine Airlines Flights (PR)


Philippine Airlines is the flag carrier of the Philippines. PAL (officially Philippine Airlines, Inc.) is known as a low-priced airline for its cheap flights all around the world.

Philippine Airlines was established on March 15, 1941 becoming Asia's first commercial airline. Earlier, in 1935 the airline appeared as Philippine Aerial Taxi Company, Incorporated (PATCO) to provide mail, cargo and passenger service particularly in the island of Luzon. Some years later, Philippine Airlines purchased a franchise of Philippine Aerial Taxi Company. At the beginning, it was named Philippine Air Lines, Inc. by a group of businessmen led by Andres Soriano, on February 26, 1941. The airline’s first flight was headed by a single Beechcraft Model 18 NPC-54 on daily services between Manila (from Nielson Field) and Baguio.

Between 1941 and 1945, during World War II, the airline ceased its operations, but on February 14, a year later, PAL resumed to operate flights to 15 domestic destinations. After the war, the Nielson Field airport was modernized and it became the official port of entry for air passengers into the Philippines. The airport was operated by Manila International Air Terminal, Inc., a wholly owned PAL subsidiary. In July of the same year, Philippine Airlines became the first Asian airline which crossed the Pacific Ocean, opening a regular service between Manila and San Francisco.

Philippine Airlines started to serve with flights to Europe in far 1947. Since then, the air company reached 19 domestic destinations and 24 international destinations in Southeast Asia, South and East Asia, Middle East, Oceania and North America, becoming one of the most respected airlines around the world with a young and modern fleet of aircraft and a route network, consisting of 31 foreign cities and 29 domestic ones. The airline is also valued for its special airline deals, including the famous low-cost tickets and off course, cheap flights to each destination purposed by the company.

In 1997, the company was critically affected by the Asian Financial Crisis. Thus, Philippine Airlines was forced to reduce its international routes until it completely closed its services to Europe and Middle East, also by diminishing its fleet size and by dismissal of thousands of employees. A year later, the airline was placed under receivership. This way, Philippine Airlines restored its flights to many of the destinations recently closed. In 2007, PAL exited receivership with great plans to further its previously serviced destinations, as well as diversify its fleet.

Philippine Airlines is headquartered in the Philippine National Bank Financial Center in Pasay City with hubs at Ninoy Aquino International Airport of Manila (MNL) and Mactan-Cebu International Airport of Cebu City (CEB).

Philippine Airlines is accredited with the IATA Operational Safety Audit (IOSA) by the International Air Transport Association (IATA) unlike the rest of the airlines in the Philippine. Also, the company has been awarded a 3-star rating by the independent research consultancy firm Skytrax.

With its fleet size of 36 aircraft, Philippine Airlines provides the best airfares for cheap flights to San Francisco, Sydney, Las Vegas, Tokyo, Beijing, Singapore and many other touristic destinations, furnishing a lot of low-cost tickets and finest flights for all interested.
