MANILA -Ahead of an expected surge in travel during the holidays, Philippine Airlines (PAL) launched a platform where passengers can book not just their flights but also their accommodation, car rentals and other activities in order to make their travel experience more convenient.
The Lucio Tan-led airline, in a statement on Monday, said it introduced PAL Holidays in partnership with Expedia Group, a one-stop travel website. The new site is now available in the Philippines, US, Canada and Australia.
Through the platform, travelers can access over 900,000 hotels, which range from budget-friendly to luxury options.
The all-in-one travel website also provides packages at discounted rates through promotional deals and exclusive offers.
“By partnering with Expedia, we are confident that our customers will enjoy unparalleled access to a superior range of great offers for hotels, experiences and transport that can go together with the Philippine Airlines flights that they book,” PAL vice president for sales Bud Britanico said.
“PAL Holidays reflects our dedication to providing exceptional travel experiences, and we look forward to serving our customers in a more convenient and efficient way,” he added.
In the coming months, air travel is expected to pick up anew due to holiday spending.
