Flag carrier Philippine Airlines (PAL) on Thursday launched its “Hiraya Flight Pass” which allows passengers to pre-purchase flights with open travel dates for all domestic routes.
According to PAL, passengers can avail of up to 50% savings through the Hiraya Flight Pass, which can be used for up to a year in economy, premium economy, and business classes.
PAL said the price of the passes will depend on the features they select, such as destination and travel zones, preferred number of flights, length of travel period, cabin class, fare types, advance booking parameters, and booking class availability.
“The Hiraya Flight Pass is the first and only customizable and shareable travel pass in the domestic travel industry, and offers the biggest savings, the most flexibility, and the widest network of available destinations,” the carrier said.
Travelers can choose multiple passengers, and share the pass with family, friends, and co-workers. They will also be given last-minute booking privileges, and manage their flight requests and changes online.
PAL over the weekend said it filed for bankruptcy in the United States, as part of its restructuring plan. The first day of hearings is scheduled on Thursday.
The company is confident it will exit the corporate restructuring process by the end of the year, but revenues are unlikely to return to pre-COVID-19 levels until after 2025.
PAL’s competitor budget carrier Cebu Pacific on Thursday also announced the one-week sale of its Super pass which allows passengers to book local flights at one-way base fares of P99, without a fixed date and destination.—LDF, GMA News
