Philippine Airlines (PAL) is returning to Guangzhou in China next month after a 17-year hiatus with weekly charter services. The carrier says flights will operate weekly, linking Subic Bay in the Philippines with the southern Chinese city via Manila.
Flights will be operated in partnership with Subic-based Legend International Resorts and Casinos. A Boeing 737-300 will be used, able to carry 148 passengers in an all-economy class configuration.
PAL already operates scheduled services to the Chinese cities of Shanghai and Xiamen, as well as regular charter services to Shenzhen near Hong Kong. It served Guangzhou between 1979 and 1985
