The Philippines’ flag carrier, Philippine Airlines (PAL) and the first airline in Asia, celebrated its 75th year last Tuesday (March 15).

On their diamond anniversary celebration, the airline has introduced new routes from Manila to Auckland, New Zealand and Cairns, Australia, as well as added domestic routes from Cebu.

PAL also launched last Tuesday its first direct flight from Cebu to Los Angeles. The Cebu-LA flights are on Tuesdays, Thursdays, and Saturdays, departing at 6:25 p.m. and arriving at 6 p.m. on the same day because of the international date line.

Return flights are scheduled on the same day, leaving at 8:40 p.m. and arriving in Cebu at 4:40 p.m., two days later due to the time difference.

And as a treat for its customers, the airline is also offering a 75-percent-off seat sale on both domestic and international flights until Saturday (March 19).

PAL was established in 1941 by a group of businessmen led by Andres Soriano. In September of the same year, the Philippine government invested in PAL and later nationalized the airline.
