PAL, PAL Express grand domestic seat sale
Philippine Airlines and domestic partner carrier PAL Express have launched their first joint promotion – a grand seat sale that slashes fares by as much as 75% on all PAL domestic routes and all PAL Express services out of Manila.
Going on sale from March 22 until April 22, 2013, the promo drops base fares to a flat rate of P360 for one-way, economy-class travel on PAL flights between Manila and Laoag, Bacolod, Cebu, Iloilo, Kalibo and Tagbilaran, as well as between General Santos and Iloilo. For PAL flights between Manila and Davao, and Manila-General Santos, the one-way promo fare is P686.
These special fares are up to 75% cheaper than PAL’s lowest economy-class offers.
For business class, the promo cuts base fares to P3,600 for one-way travel on PAL flights between Manila and Laoag, Bacolod, Cebu, Iloilo, Kalibo and Tagbilaran, plus the Gen. Santos-Iloilo sector. On two PAL Mindanao routes, Manila-Davao and Manila-General Santos, the one-way promo fare is P4,399.
These fares represent a markdown of as much as 50% off PAL’s lowest business-class rates on these routes.
Passengers on PAL Express will also enjoy the bounty. The carrier is offering a flat rate of P360 for one-way travel on flights between Manila and Busuanga, Legazpi, Masbate, Naga, Puerto Princesa, Tuguegarao, Calbayog, Catarman, Dumaguete, Kalibo, Roxas and Tacloban.
For one-way travel between Manila and seven Mindanao points – Butuan, Cagayan de Oro, Cotabato, Dipolog, Ozamiz, Surigao and Zamboanga – the fare is P686.
Notwithstanding the budget fares, both carriers do not scrimp on perks. PAL and PAL Express passengers can look forward to inflight service that makes them feel “at home,” as PAL’s new tagline puts it.
These include complimentary snacks, drinks, periodicals and other amenities typically dispensed by full-service carriers like PAL. The benefits of membership in Mabuhay Miles, PAL’s popular frequent-flyer program, have also been extended to PAL Express passengers.
Tickets bought on all promo fares are valid for travel from June 16 to October 15, 2013. Other terms and conditions on refunds and re-routing as approved by the Civil Aeronautics Board (CAB) are also applicable.
PAL accepts cash payments at select Petron gasoline stations, specifically at Petron Bel Air, Makati Ave., Bluewave EDSA-Macapagal, Pasay; Sucat, Paranaque; Filinvest in Alabang, Muntinlupa; Wack Wack and Connecticut, Green Hills, Mandaluyong; Petron Sierra Madre; and at Diego Silang, along C-5 Road, Taguig City.
Customers can also pay for their promo tickets at over 766 convenience stores of the 7-11 retail chain nationwide. This mode of payment is applicable only to passengers who book online. Those who book via the reservations numbers should proceed to ticket offices.
