PAL suspends Cebu-Singapore flights

By Louella Desiderio | The Philippine Star

MANILA, Philippines — Philippine Airlines (PAL) is suspending its Cebu-Singapore flight operations in March, but increasing the frequency of the Cebu-Bangkok service as part of rationalization of routes.

“Effective March 25, as part of the airline’s route rationalization moves, PAL will suspend its Cebu-Singapore operations and increase its Cebu-Bangkok flight frequency from thrice weekly to daily,” PAL said in a statement.

Passengers with tickets for the Cebu-Singapore flights from March 25, onwards may rebook to get Cebu-Manila-Singapore or Singapore-Manila-Cebu flights within 30 days from the original flight date without penalties or charges.

Affected passengers may also opt to refund the cost of their tickets within 30 days from original flight date with refunding charges waived.

“The airline is seeking the understanding of its passengers in view of the inconvenience brought about by this latest development on their original travel plans,” PAL said.

While it is suspending the Cebu-Singapore service, March 25 would mark the start of PAL’s daily service between Cebu and Bangkok.

Flight PR738 will leave Cebu at 9:10 p.m. and arrive in Bangkok at 12:10 a.m.  (local time) the following day.

Meanwhile, flight PR739 will depart Bangkok at 1:30 a.m. (local time) and be in Cebu at 6:30 a.m.

Earlier this month, PAL suspended services on the Kalibo-Guangzhou-Kalibo route in line with the restructuring of the flight network in the region.

While it stopped operating services on that route, PAL would mount an additional Manila-Guangzhou flight every Saturday effective Feb.1.

“In consideration of the current market conditions, the additional Manila-Guangzhou operation will ensure that efficient air transport services are continuously provided between points in the Philippines and Guangzhou,” PAL said.

PAL is also set to expand services in different cities in China to promote tourist and business travel.

The carrier is looking to expand operations in the cities of Beijing, Shanghai, Quanzhou (Jinjiang), Chengdu, Xiamen and Guangzhou from various Philippine destinations.
