Philippine Airlines will begin flying to Brisbane, Darwin and Perth from June 1.
PAL's daily Darwin-Manila service leaves Darwin at 3pm, with the return flight out of Manila at 10.05pm.
The Brisbane-Manila and Perth-Manila flights are routed through Darwin. The Brisbane-Manila service departs Brisbane at 10.10am on Tuesdays, Thursdays and Saturdays; flights from Perth leave at 8.50am on Mondays, Wednesdays, Fridays and Saturdays.
The flights will run on an Airbus A320 with 12 business class recliner seats of 21" width and 36" pitch, an airline spokesman advised Australian Business Traveller.
PAL already offers four nonstop Boeing 777-300ER flights per week between Sydney and Manila and three weekly directs from Melbourne, having last year replaced 'triangular service' which saw each flight stop in both Sydney and Melbourne.
Tickets for these new Australian routes are now on sale, with PAL offering special promotional rates.
Existing services from Sydney and Melbourne are operated by Philippine Airlines’ flagship Boeing 777-300ER, flying non-stop from Sydney on Mondays, Tuesdays, Thursdays and Saturdays, and non-stop from Melbourne on Wednesdays, Fridays and Sundays.
Other additions to Philippine Airlines' route map include Kuala Lumpur, from May 1; Guangzhou from June 1; and Abu Dhabi, from October 1.
