PAL flies to Bali April 28


MANILA, Philippines–Philippine Airlines (PAL) will fly to Bali starting April 28, re-establishing direct air links between Manila and Indonesia’s prime holiday destination.

“With the new service, passengers can look forward to experiencing full-service, hassle-free trip to Bali for their vacation,” said PAL President Jaime J. Bautista in a statement sent to the media.

The new Bali service, utilizing the bi-class Airbus A320 aircraft, will operate twice weekly, departing Manila every Wednesday and Saturday at 9:45 p.m.  Arrival at Denpasar International Airport – Bali’s provincial capital is at 1:25 a.m. the following day.

The return flight, PR 538, departs Denpasar on Thursday and Sunday at 2:25 a.m. and will arrive in Manila at 6:10 a.m.

To mark the launch of the Bali flights, PAL is offering a promo fare of only US$188 for round-trip, economy tickets. Business class tickets have also been slashed to US$988. The promo fares are exclusive of government taxes, fees and surcharges.

The discounted tickets are on sale from April 1 to 30, 2012, and may be used from April 28 to Sept. 30, 2012.

Bali is PAL’s second destination in Indonesia, following Jakarta, the country’s capital, where the flag carrier flies five times a week direct from Manila and four times a week via Singapore.

Bali will become PAL’s 26th destination in its international route network. PAL flies to 20 domestic stations using an all-jet fleet. PAL is the only domestic airline offering business class service.

    With PAL opening up its next call into Indonesia’s most
    popular tourist destination for foreign visitors-Bali- Filipino holiday makers
    will be able to broaden their knowledge of another world and peoples and not
    just looking at their traditional areas of Hong Kong, Japan and the Americas.
    It saddens me to read comments of sentiments from readers (usually self-centered
    nationalist), who decry it’s wastage of revenues, prodding Filipinos of better
    beaches within the country, and spiteful of Filipinos contributing another
    nations economic growth. If such sentiments are taken with a little salt, Boracay,
    Manila, Baguio and the many cities of this country will be void of visitors and
    ‘their” hard earned money. Look at the brighter side of our world for a
    brighter life for: ourselves.

    I hope Filipinos will visit first all beautiful places around the Philippines before going to this foreign places… What Bali have is beach, we have more better beaches than Bali here in the Philippines.  Tangkilikin muna ang sariling atin para umasenso ang bansa natin instead of spending our hard earned money to other countries which will help more their economy to grow. Anyway, most of the Filipinos who spend holidays to other countries were using easy earned money like the families of government officials and employees, politicians and greedy businessmen…..

      wala rin akong balak na pumunta sa Bali. I think PAL is eyeing for foreign tourists in Bali to extend their vacation here in the PH.
