PHILIPPINE Airlines, Inc. (PAL) announced on Monday that it would expand its services in the Visayas and Mindanao in anticipation of increased demand during the upcoming holiday season.

The flag carrier will resume services from Iloilo to Cebu and General Santos City on Dec. 7 and from Iloilo to Davao on Dec. 8.

With various areas in the Visayas and Mindanao reopening for business and tourism, the airline anticipates that the new flights will contribute to the overall economic recovery.
