Philippine Airlines to launch Vancouver-JFK flights March 15

VANCOUVER — Philippine Airlines will launch four times weekly service between Vancouver and New York March 15.

An introductory fare of Can$549.85 including taxes and fees is being offered through Nov. 6 for the flights that leave Vancouver Tuesdays, Thursdays, Saturdays and Sundays and return from New York JFK on Wednesdays, Fridays, Sundays and Mondays.

There will also be four new flights from Manila to Vancouver effective March 15 on Tuesdays, Thursdays, Saturdays and Sundays. Vancouver-Manila flights are on Wednesdays, Fridays, Sundays and Mondays.

PAL will use the Airbus A340-300 jets, which seat 36 passengers in business class and 218 in economy.

On board, passengers can expect business class seats that convert to full-flat beds; inflight entertainment system such as audio-video on demand in business and gourmet cuisine designed by top international guest chefs.

The New York service will have the added benefit of boosting PAL’s Canadian operation. From March 15, 2015, the current daily service between Manila and Vancouver will spike to 11 flights weekly with three departure times from Manila – mid-afternoon, early evening and late evening – providing wider schedule choices to passengers.

Manila-Toronto will add a fourth weekly frequency, increasing capacity on this long-haul route in time for the peak summer travel period out of Manila.
