Philippine Airlines said Tuesday it will resume flights between Manila and Denpasar Bali, one of the top destinations in Indonesia, on July 1 as part of of major international expansion with the reopening of foreign travel.
“We are excited to be able to fly leisure and business travelers to Bali, one of the world’s most spectacular and beloved destinations,” said PAL vice president for sales Bud Britanico in a statement.
“Philippine Airlines is also happy to offer our Indonesian customers regular nonstop flights from Denpasar Bali to the wonders of the Philippines and to other destinations in our global network,” Britanico said.
He said PAL would fly thrice weekly services between Manila and Bali’s Ngurah Rai International Airport starting July 1.
The airline will offer two additional weekly flights from Aug. 1, 2022, increasing frequencies to five times weekly, before ramping up to daily flights by Oct. 4, 2022.
It said travelers may connect conveniently with Bali-bound flights from various domestic points in the Philippines and from overseas points served by PAL such as Tokyo, Osaka, Fukuoka, Nagoya, Bangkok and Los Angeles.
PAL serves 30 destinations in the Philippines and 29 overseas destinations in Asia, the US, Canada, Australia and the Middle East.
The flag carrier also operates daily flights between Jakarta Soekarno-Hatta and Manila.
PAL said it is keen on gradually reopening flights to key destinations in Southeast Asia, following the easing of restrictions and reopening of borders in different countries.
