PAL EXTENDS ‘READY, SET, BOOK’ PROMO
Flag carrier Philippine Airlines ( PAL) has announced that its ongoing sale strategy to lure travelers with its “Ready, Set, Book!” promo has been extended until November 29, 2020 “to give travel aficionados the chance to avail of these special rates.”
The promo initially offered for the period from November 16 to 22, 2020 provides special deals for as low as P388 one- way for domestic flights and $ 99 roundtrip for international flights. ( The quoted prices are economy base fares.)
The travel period is from January 10 to September 30, 2021 for domestic flights and January 15 to September 30, 2021 for international flights.
The “Ready, Set, Book!” promotion for 2021 travel, along with many other initiatives of PAL, supports the government’s efforts to promote safe travel experiences and rebuild Philippine tourism, as various provinces and countries gradually reopen their borders.
Under this promotion, passengers can travel to the flag carrier’s domestic and international destinations with increased flexibility. Ticket holders are allowed unlimited rebooking seven days prior to departure date. Subject to fare differences, if applicable.
Interested travelers may book via www.philippineairlines.com or through the PAL mobile app, call PAL Reservations at (+63 2) 88558888 or visit any PAL ticketing office or partner travel agent.
PAL flyers can be assured of a worry- free travel experience under the airline’s multi- layered “New Normal, Same Heart” safety programs and practices that have earned PAL a Top Ten ranking among the world’s safest airlines for Covid- era travel.
The safety protocols include the use of signature personalized protective equipment ( PPE) by cabin crew, a rigorous disinfection regimen for aircraft before and after every flight, a high- tech cabin system that refreshes cabin air and uses high efficiency particulate air filters to protect against viruses, bacteria and impurities with 99.99 percent efficacy, and modifications to inflight food services and amenities to minimize physical contact.
PAL reminds all passengers to use face masks and shields for their protection as well.
The flag carrier recently launched its own rapid test polymerase chain reaction ( RT- PCR) testing facility for departing passengers at its Learning Center in Manila, with swab test results guaranteed within 24 hours.
Since August, PAL has also been operating a One-stop-shop facility at Ninoy Aquino International Airport Terminal 2 to cater to arriving nonOFWS and foreign travelers, also with a 24-hour test result guarantee. The airline has partnered with authorized private medical service providers for both the departure and arrival testing centers.
The carrier now offers regular non- stop flights between the Philippines and the US, Japan, Canada, Singapore, Taipei, Hong Kong, the UK and Indonesia along with occasional flights to Australia, New Zealand, Papua New Guinea and other Asia/ Pacific countries.
Additionally, the flag carrier continues to operate all- cargo flights and special repatriation services during this time of pandemic.
