MANILA – The Philippine Airlines (PAL) would temporarily suspend flights to and from Brisbane in Australia starting October 31 this year due to “marketing considerations.”

PAL spokesperson Cielo Villaluna said its five times a week flights to Melbourne will be adjusted to thrice weekly, while flights to Sydney – one of PAL’s most popular Australian destinations – remains unaffected with five times weekly services.

Villaluna added that Australia remains an important market for PAL although they have to make some necessary changes due to weak demand during the lean season.

“Passengers to be affected by the flight realignments shall be properly notified by PAL’s contact center and advised on the best options on their respective destinations,” said Villaluna. (Virgil Lopez/Sunnex)
