PAL resumes flights to K.L.

Flag carrier Philippine Airlines will resume flights to Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia, on Sunday, October 26, five years after operational and financial problems forced it to suspend the service, a PAL official said Saturday.

"PAL is gradually returning to its core markets and K.L. is an important part of that modest expansion,'' PAL president Avelino Zapanta said in a statement.

The company said the planned resumption of flights in May was postponed because of the severe acute respiratory syndrome that led to a dramatic drop in air travel across Asia.

The airline said there will be flights from Manila to Kuala Lumpur every Monday, Wednesday, Friday and Sunday with a return flight the next day. Boeing 737-300 jets will be used.

Kuala Lumpur is the airline's 23rd international destination and the fifth in Southeast Asia.
