Emirates and Philippine Airlines (PAL) have recently signed an interline agreement, but what does it mean for travelers?
The new deal will allow a reciprocal one-ticket, one-bag policy. This means that Philippine Airlines’ passengers can check in once with checked baggage, and then move to their final destination within the Emirates network. The same policy applies to Emirates’ passengers, who can check in once and move to their final destination within the Philippine Airlines’ network.
The interline partnership provides Emirates’ passengers access to 19 Philippine domestic destinations operated by Philippine Airlines, including Bacolod, Cebu, Cagayan de Oro, Cotabato, Davao, Iloilo, Kalibo and more, as well as two Asian regional points via Manila.
Philippine Airlines’ passengers also benefit from access to Emirates’ global network and connect to 21 cities operated by Emirates beyond Dubai to European destinations such as London, Rome, Frankfurt, Barcelona, Paris and Kuwait, as well as to Jeddah and other points in the Middle East, Africa and India.
Travel itineraries can be booked on emirates.com, philippineairlines.com, the Emirates and PAL mobile apps, or via both online and offline travel agents.
“The partnership with Philippine Airlines will help open new links for trade and tourism that will drive more inbound traffic into the market, and expand Emirates’ footprint in East Asia,” said Adnan Kazim, Emirates’ Chief Commercial Officer.
“We are happy to embark on this new interline partnership with Emirates that expands the choices available to Philippine Airlines passengers, who now gain easier access to more destinations across Europe, the Middle East, India and Africa via our flights to Dubai,” said Bud Britanico, Philippine Airlines Vice President for Sales.
