Philippine Airlines (PAL) and Emirates have expanded their interline agreement, enabling Emirates’ passengers to access domestic points in PAL’s network via Cebu and Clark adding to the previously announced interline connections via Manila, PAL said in a statement.

Passengers may also fly on PAL flights via Dubai to connect seamlessly to Emirates’ network to cities in Europe, Africa, and other parts of the Middle East.

Covering all three gateways in the Philippines served by Emirates – Manila, Cebu and Clark – this partnership expansion will provide seamless connectivity for passengers to reach even more destinations in the Philippines using a single ticket and a convenient baggage policy.

Emirates’ passengers can enjoy a convenient booking process to destinations in PAL’s network including Bacolod, Butuan, Cagayan De Oro, Davao, Iloilo, Caticlan and Puerto Princesa via Cebu; as well as Cebu, Caticlan and Busuanga via Clark.

PAL passengers will benefit from the enhanced interline agreement and book Emirates-operated flights to Amman, Birmingham, Cape Town, Dammam, Dublin, Lisbon, Manchester, Muscat, and Riyadh via Dubai.

PAL operates daily flights between Manila and Dubai, enabling convenient connections to European, African and Middle Eastern destinations. The arrangement allows for passengers to obtain their boarding passes and check through their baggage all the way to final destination.

The expansion comes months after PAL and Emirates first announced their interline agreement, reaffirming the commitment of both airlines to serve growing demand by providing travelers with more choice and flexibility, as well as enhanced customer experiences.

PAL first served the Middle East in 1947 and has been serving the United Arab Emirates since 1982. It now operates 24 weekly flights to three countries in the Middle East, along with the nonstop services across the Pacific Ocean to gateways in the East and West Coasts of both Canada and the United States.

Emirates has been flying to the Philippines since 1990 and currently operates 25 weekly flights to Manila, Cebu and Clark. With 29 codeshare and 110 interline partners, Emirates’ global footprint encompasses destinations far beyond its own network, offering increased connectivity and convenient options for travelers.
