Philippines Airlines to suspend Abu Dhabi-Manila flights

Philippine Airlines (PAL) will be temporarily suspending all flights between Abu Dhabi and Manila from July, the company has announced.

According to the airline, the temporary cancellation of the service is being carried out as PAL undertakes route assessment initiatives.

To ensure its Filipino passengers are not affected by the move, the airline will provide a bus service between the UAE capital and Dubai, from where they will depart. Similarly returning overseas Filipino workers who have purchased tickets are advised to either seek a refund or re-book their flight, and depart from or arrive at Dubai airport instead.

“PAL is seeking the kind understanding of affected passengers as the airline implements these operational adjustments,” the carrier said.

“Holders of PAL Manila –Abu Dhabi –Manila tickets dated July 8, 2017 and onwards may avail of any of the following options: Re-book their PAL Manila – Abu Dhabi flight to the PAL Manila – Dubai route and be transported by PAL – arranged/assisted bus from Dubai to Abu Dhabi and vice versa or refund the cost of their tickets.”

Affected flyers have been given 30 days from original travel dates to arrange for a rebooking or refund, with rebooking/refunding charges waived.

“PAL will also communicate with affected passengers via email notification and call-out.”

“The airline shall inform the public once the service resumes.”

PAL is the largest Filipino carrier serving the UAE market. It currently operates daily flights between Dubai and Manila and thrice weekly flights on the Abu Dhabi route. - TradeArabia News Service
