Philippine Airlines (PAL) Back to Saudi Arabia
Once more Philippine AirlinesÂ also known as “PAL” have decided to have their service available to Filipinos in Middle East, especially in Saudi Arabia. Philippine Airline decided long time ago not to be available in Saudi Arabia due to profitability issues. It is good for Filipinos and other traveler to Philippines to have the flag carrierâ€™s availability once again in Saudi Arabia. Philippine Airlines will be available in Saudi air space starting December 1, 2013. I have been told that airfare is in the range of SAR 2,000 to SAR 2,500, which is part of their promotion.
Flight will also available in Dammam on December 2 while Jeddah and Riyadh will start on December 1.
My colleague bought his ticket at a cost of SAR 2,130 from Riyadh Saudi Arabia with its return ticket.
I would suggest to contact your preferred travel agency so that you can get good discounts for your vacation this December. Normally the website gives a higher rate compared to those rates that an agency can give. (It is based on experience).
Normally Philippine Airlines ticket cost is higher than any other Airlines in Saudi Arabia, but this time I believe they are the cheapest.
