Philippine Airlines (PAL) has announced that it will resume its nonstop thrice weekly service between Manila and Abu Dhabi later this year.

The carrier announced a temporary suspension of its Abu Dhabi service in May this year, effective from July 8. The temporary cancellation of the service, which operated on Tuesdays, Thursdays and Saturdays, was implemented as PAL undertook "route assessment initiatives", the airline said.

In a statement this week, the airline said it will resume the thrice weekly service between Manila and Abu Dhabi from October 31 after "experiencing increased demand for flights on the route".

The national carrier said it will provide a bi-class service (business and economy) across all its Middle East routes by the end of the year, providing passengers on board amenities, free baggage allowance and inflight entertainment.

PAL also serves Dammam (5 times weekly), Dubai (daily), Jeddah (thrice weekly), Kuwait (four times weekly) and Riyadh (daily).
