AirPhil flies to Surigao, PAL takes over Ozamiz route

Air Philippines (AirPhil), the low-cost carrier of the Lucio Tan Group, will soon fly to Surigao as it turns over its Ozamiz City operations on June 16, 2009 to its sister company, Philippine Airlines (PAL).

AirPhil decided to leave Ozamiz after observing the city's rapid economic expansion that requires bigger aircraft to accommodate the growing volume of air travelers and cargo.

With PAL's return to Ozamiz after an absence of 11 years, travelers will enjoy PAL's full-service amenities on ground and onboard its brand-new Airbus A319-100 aircraft. This includes PAL's exclusive Mabuhay class where passengers are served hot meals during the one-hour-25-minute flight from Manila and vice versa.

Meanwhile, AirPhil will start daily jet service between Manila and Surigao starting July 1, 2009. Flights from Manila will depart 8:45 am, arriving Surigao at 10:15 am. The return flight leaves Surigao airport at 10:45 am and lands in Manila 12:15 pm. AirPhil operates at the new Terminal 3.

PAL's daily flights to Ozamiz in Misamis Occidental leaves Manila at 11:45 am and departs Ozamiz for Manila at 1:50 pm. Passengers holding Air Philippines tickets for Ozamiz will be accommodated on PAL flights and are advised to check-in at NAIA Terminal 2. Likewise, well-wishers can meet passengers from Ozamiz in Terminal 2, where PAL operates all its fights.

AirPhil is yielding its lucrative Ozamiz market to PAL for the greater convenience of its loyal patrons. Passengers welcomed the move as they look forward to PAL's safe, reliable and value-for-money service. (PAL)
