Philippine Airlines (PAL) reopened a regular service between Manila and Guam this week after a nine-year hiatus.

PAL president, Mr Avelino L Zapanta, said: "We are always keen to grow our markets in the regional arena and Guam, with its rising tourism-based economy, presents us with a major opportunity to do so."

The service will operate three times a week, with departures from Manila every Monday, Wednesday and Friday at 22.00. Arrival at Guam"s Antonio B Won Pat International Airport is at 04.00 the following day.

The return flight departs Guam every Tuesday, Thursday and Saturday at 06.40, arriving in Manila at 08.50.

PAL will field new-generation Airbus A320-200 aircraft, which seat 12 in Mabuhay (business) class and 138 in economy, for the four-hour-and-ten-minute journey.

Guam is now PAL's fourth destination in the US (after Los Angeles, San Francisco and Honolulu) and 21st overall.

Guam draws more than one million visitors a year, mainly from Japan and Korea including about 10,000 Filipinos, who are attracted to Guam"s status as a duty-free port and the closest American outpost to the country.
