Philippine Airlines is preparing to launch flights to twelve new destinations in Australia, China, Malaysia and Middle East, including a new domestic service to Northern Luzon.

The airline will launch flights to Kuala Lumpur (Malaysia) on 2 May 2013; Darwin, Brisbane and Perth (Australia), 1 June; Guangzhou (China), 2 June; Abu Dhabi (United Arab Emirates), 1 October; Doha (Qatar) 1 November; Riyadh, Jeddah and Dammam (Saudi Arabia), 1 December; Dubai (United Arab Emirates), 1 November and Basco, Batanes on 1 May (the last two will be operated by PAL Express).

PAL President and COO Ramon S. Ang said PALís route expansion, particularly in the Middle East, will open strategic gateways and allow greater connectivity to more destinations in the region through PALís interline partners. ďFrom UAE, for example, overseas Filipino workers can easily connect to other key cities or countries through PALís airline partners in the Gulf,Ē Ang stressed.

Ang added that the Philippinesí robust economy, recent credit rating upgrade, exciting tourist destinations and the countryís geographical advantage as a jump off point to many Asian cities are also behind PALís aggressive expansion.

With the wider route network, Ang said foreign tourists and business travelers can fly to Manila, enjoy the Philippines for a few days, or connect directly to PALís other Asian, Australian and North American destinations.

In November last year, PAL's new management began the network expansion with the launch of non-stop flights to Toronto, Canada.

PAL's current network, operated with PAL Express, consists of 32 domestic and 28 international points.
