First direct flights between UK and the Philippines in 15 years started yesterday

For the first time in 15 years, there is now a direct flight between the Philippines and Britain. Philippine Airlines started a new service between Manila and Heathrow on November 4.
The flights will operate five times a week: Tuesday, Wednesday, Friday, Saturday, and Sunday. If there is enough demand, and more slots become available at Heathrow, PAL will extend the service to seven days a week. Slots at Heathrow are hard to come by, so this development has been in the works for quite a while: years, in fact.
KLM, the Dutch carrier, was the only carrier offering direct flights from Europe to the Philippines. PAL was previously banned from operating in British airspace. The airline was one of almost 300 airlines from 20 different countries under the ban. All other Philippine airlines are still on the blacklist.
The flights take approximately 12.5 hours.
The above article is a summary. Please see the source article at Google News.
