PHILIPPINE AIRLINES OPERATES MILESTONE POLAR FLIGHT



PHILIPPINE AIRLINES OPERATES MILESTONE POLAR FLIGHT

Flag carrier Philippine Airlines flew its milestone 1st ultra-long polar flight from Toronto, Canada non-stop to
Manila - the first-ever crossing of the Polar region by a Filipino airline.

The state of the art 370-seater Boeing 777-300ER - with registry number RP-C7779 flew 7,200 nautical miles or
13,300 kilometers and traveled over Canada, Greenland, the Arctic Circle, Russia, Mongolia and parts of China. The flight was conducted at cruising altitudes ranging from 29,000 to 37,000 feet.

PAL decided to shift to direct non-stop service via the polar route to cut down the total traveling time between
Toronto and Manila. The carrier used to operate flights between the two points with a stopover in Vancouver, a longer routing that resulted in a combined flying and ground time of 21 hours. This new route cuts traveling time by 4.5 hours, a saving that translates to greater convenience for passengers.

PAL will be operating these nonstop Manila-Toronto and Toronto-Manila flights on a regular four times weekly schedule, with departures from Manila every Wednesday, Friday, Saturday and Sunday; and departures from Toronto every Monday, Thursday, Saturday and Sunday.
