Philippine Airlines suspends Abu Dhabi – Manila service

The carrier said the change was being undertaken as it implements “operational adjustments”



Philippine Airlines had announced the temporary suspension of flights from Manila to Abu Dhabi until further notice, potentially affecting thousands of passengers.

The cancellation of PR656/657, which flies on Tuesdays, Thursdays and Saturdays, is effective from July 8.

The carrier said the change was being undertaken as it implements “operational adjustments”.

Holders of tickets dated after July 8 have been given the option of rebooking on Philippine Airlines’ Dubai service with bus transport to and from Abu Dhabi arranged by the airline.

Alternatively it is offering to refund the cost of ticket.

Passengers are being given 30 days from their original flight dates to choose an option.

Philippine Airlines gave no indication of when the service would return.

“The airline shall inform the public once the service resumes,” it said.

Abu Dhabi carrier Etihad currently offers three daily flights to Manila.
