PAL San Francisco moves offices to Burlingame
BURLINGAME, California – Philippine Airlines has moved to new offices in the City of Burlingame, a suburb of San Francisco and just a stone’s throw from the San Francisco Airport.
At the same time, PAL Area Manager for the San Francisco Bay Area Sol Solleza, announced the reopened PAL route to New York, which starts in March of 2015.
Solleza treated the press to a sumptuous Thanksgiving lunch last Nov. 21 at Flower Lounge in Milbrae, after which she gave a tour of PAL’s new offices.
The San Francisco PAL offices at the Philippine Center on Sutter Street closed at the end of October after several decades’ stay. The new Burlingame office offers easy access from anywhere in the Bay Area and offers free and easily available parking.
PAL last served the East Coast market in 1997, operating thrice weekly the Manila-Vancouver-Newark route. This time, the new route will fly four times a week into JFK/New York with a technical stop in Vancouver just as before.
PR 126 leaves Manila at 11:30 p.m. Tuesday, Thursday, Saturday and Sunday arriving in New York 7 a.m. the next day. PR 127 leaves JFK 11AM, Wednesday, Friday, Sunday and Monday, and arrives in Manila at 8:35 p.m. the next day.
US Federal Aviation Administration restored the Philippines’ safety rating to Category 1 level early this year. Between 2008 and 2014, PAL was prohibited from changing aircraft gauge, adjusting flight frequency and adding new destinations in the United States after the Philippines failed to comply with minimum safety standards set by the International Civil Aviation Organization (ICAO).
