PAL flies to Jinjiang
Rudy Santos (The Philippine Star) - March 20, 2015 - 12:00am

MANILA, Philippines - Philippine Airlines announced the start of service on March 29 to their newest destination Jinjiang, a city in Fujian province. The city is known for its foreign-owned factories in the clothing and footwear industry and has seen the rise of migrant workers in recent years.

PAL president and chief operating officer Jaime Bautista said, “A large number of Chinese-Filipinos trace their roots to the city of Jinjiang. In response to the clamor for links to and from the Chinese city, the flag carrier is launching the new route.”

“We hope to bring PAL’s unique Filipino style of warm, friendly, caring and hospitable service to our passengers on the new route,” he added.

Jinjiang brings to seven the total number of PAL destinations in China, which includes Beijing, Guangzhou, Hong Kong, Macau, Shanghai and Xiamen.

The new service (PR 356) departs Manila Tuesdays, Thursdays and Saturdays at 11 a.m. and arrives in Jinjiang at 1:25 p.m. Its return flight (PR357) departs Jinjiang on the same days at 2:25 p.m. and arrives Manila at 4:55 p.m.
