PAL Flights from Manila to Doha
Senior vice president David Lim of PAL’s Commercial Group said at a press conference in Doha “It is the conservative way of doing business and making sure the airline does not jump into the water without the necessary equipment. By doing the via Abu Dhabi, we are making sure that we are reaching our fellow Filipinos the best way we can do profitably.”
The flight to Qatar will be 5 times a week except on Wed and Sun; the flight will use an Airbus 330 plane. The PAL flight cabin has free Wifi access, entertainment to watch movies or tv shows, listen to music, or read magazines.
This is great news for Filipinos in Doha as this provides another option to fly with the national Philippine airline carrier. This also helps promote tourism in the Philippines for Qataris or other nationalities who want to visit the country.
