“After its successful flights to Cairns and Auckland, Philippines Airlines continues its expansion in the Oceania region by resuming flights to Port Moresby, Papua New Guinea,” Bautista said. “It allows PAL to be of service to the travel needs of tourists and businessmen both from Manila and Papua New Guinea.”

Philippine Airlines recently launched its flights from Manila to Auckland via Cairns earlier this month. According to Bautista, the new service to the Middle Earth will surely provide seamless travel for Filipinos and Kiwis wanting to visit the Philippines.
