Perth locals keen on discovering the diverse islands of the Philippines can now take advantage of Philippine Airlines’ (PAL) debut non-stop service from Perth to Manila.

The thrice-weekly A321neo flight will shave off four to six hours off alternate travel times.

With the new route, PAL’s total weekly flights from Australia have increased to 20, with Perth joining the airline’s existing gateways of Sydney, Melbourne, and Brisbane.

PAL’s new non-stop service from Perth to Manila marks its return to the Western Australian city after a decade-long absence.

The airline briefly served the Perth route via Darwin in 2013 before abandoning it the same year.

Although plans were previously made to commence the service in 2019 with a tentative launch date in late March 2020, the pandemic caused delays.

Now, travelers from Perth can enjoy a comfortable seven-hour flight aboard the fully flat business class-equipped A321neo.

The PAL A321neo provides three rows of flatbed business class seating in a 2-2 configuration, offering a secluded and comfortable option for travelers.

The new service, with flight number PR223, departs Manila at 12:05 am local time every Monday, Thursday, and Saturday, landing in Perth at 7:15 am.

On the return flight, PR224 leaves Perth every Monday, Thursday, and Saturday, taking off at 8:30 am from Terminal 1 and arriving in Manila at 3:50 pm local time.

In UCT’s opinion, The Philippines is a significantly underrated luxury travel destination.

The country is home to 7,641 islands with white-sand beaches and dramatic volcanic landscapes.

It offers a rich cultural mix, warm locals, sensational cuisine, and numerous opportunities for shopping.

Sadly PAL doesn’t have a partner airline in Australia or a membership with a global alliance.

Travellers can, however, join the airline’s Mabuhay Miles frequent flyer program, which is free to join.
