Philippine Airlines has reported bookings for January in the UK have increased by 87% in comparison to the same month in 2017.

Following the success of its winter sale promotional campaign in December, which contributed significantly to this sales increase, the airline has extended the sale until February 28, with return economy fares to Singapore starting from £429.

Top performing destinations include London to Manila; London to Denpasar, Bali; London to Cebu; London to Hong Kong and London to Sydney.

In September 2017, the airline launched a new B777-300ER aircraft from London to Manila, which since December resumed a daily service. The aircraft was introduced to provide greater comfort for passengers along with improved entertainment facilities and upgraded menus and has increased available capacity for the airline with 328 seats available in economy and 42 available in Business Class.

David Cochrane, the airline’s country manager for UK & Ireland, said: “Not only have customers been attracted to the increased facilities and service levels offered by the new B777-300ER aircraft, but Philippine Airlines ticket prices are very competitive and the resumed daily service and reconfigured 2018 timetables have improved onward connections, significantly providing travel time savings for passengers originating in London travelling across Asia and beyond.

"For the next six months, the airline is seeing very strong demand, for Bali, Australia, New Zealand, the Philippines, Hong Kong and Japan.”
