PAL ready to launch Osaka, Nagoya flights in December

PHILIPPINE Airlines is all set to introduce new services to Osaka and Nagoya via Cebu.

In a product launch held last Wednesday at the Radisson Blu hotel, PAL provided travel agencies, program partners and media with an overview of the flag carrier’s latest flight offerings.

PAL will begin four-times-weekly flights (Mondays, Thursdays, Fridays and Sundays) between Cebu and Osaka via PR 410 starting on Dec. 19. Flights will depart from NAIA Terminal 2 at 9:15 a.m., arriving in Osaka at 2:40 p.m. local time. Return flights fall on the same days, departing from Osaka at 3:40 p.m. local time and arriving in Manila at 7:30 p.m.

On Dec. 20, PAL will also start operating three weekly flights (Tuesdays, Wednesdays and Saturdays) between Cebu and Nagoya via PR 480. Flights will depart from NAIA Terminal 2 at 9:10 a.m., arriving in Nagoya at 2:40 p.m. local time. Departures from Nagoya at 3:40 p.m. local time fall on the same days, with arrivals in Manila at 7:30 p.m., the airline said.

The new routes to be launched within the month will bring to 67 the total number of PAL flights to Japan per week. The carrier currently operates from Manila 11 weekly flights to Haneda (Tokyo), 14 weekly flights to Narita (Tokyo), seven weekly flights each to Nagoya, Osaka (Kansai), and Fukuoka.

From Cebu, there are 14 weekly flights to Narita (Tokyo).

Japan is the third biggest source of visitor arrivals to the country. Data from the Department of Tourism show that from January-August 2014, arrivals from Japan reached 310,901, an increase of 5.95 percent from the same period the year before. (PR)
