MANILA (XFNews) - Philippine Airlines (PAL) will stop flying to unprofitable routes like Riyadh and Kuala Lumpur this quarter, and instead increase flights to the United States, its president Jaime Bautista said.
The flag carrier also plans to revive flights to India.
"We were trying to maintain Riyadh to give our overseas Filipino workers the seats but since the Middle Eastern carriers have been serving the route well, then we can suspend operations," Bautista said.
PAL may start flying to Mumbai this year or early 2007, Bautista said. It used to service that route until 1954.
