Philippine Airlines, known widely as PAL, is the Philippines’ leading full-service airline.
Although not a budget airline, PAL should still be on your list of places to check for cheap flights.
Affordable fares are often easy to book. Sometimes, prices are even cheaper than budget airlines like Cebu Pacific & AirAsia.
Book cheap PAL flights during promo periods
The cheapest Philippine Airlines flights are sold during promo periods and seat sales.
Popular promos include their “PALmazing weekend sale,” “50% off” and “75% off” promo. The best ones are usually announced during a major holiday like Philippine Independence Day, PAL Anniversary Day, Christmas Day, New Year’s Day, etc.
This airline does not announce promos as frequently as budget airlines. When they do, however, these discounts are worth considering because of the airline’s generally higher service quality.

Read promo details & conditions carefully
Promo fares are only available under conditions posted on the announcement. Be mindful of these important details:
Selling period — You should book your flights before the end of the selling period.
Travel period — Promo fares are only available for dates on or within the travel period.
Is the fare for a one-way or roundtrip (return) ticket?
Booking channel where the promo can be availed.
Promo code, if available.
Check availability and book online
If a promo may be booked online, the best way to check if they are available is to do a flight search directly on their official website or mobile app.
The process of booking promo flights should be the almost same as booking regular flights. Make sure to read special conditions on the announcement to confirm this.
Keep in mind that they also offer promo fares that are not available for booking online and can only be availed when attending special events such as travel expos.
Book directly with the airline
Depending on the conditions posted on the announcement, tickets may only be reserved online through PAL’s official booking channels.
Including their official website, mobile app, call center, or at ticketing outlets.
Keep in mind that third-party travel agencies, even if they are affiliated with or accredited by Philippine Airlines, might not have access to all promo fares. These agencies would likely tell you that they cannot find the discounted fares in their system, and offer regular fares instead.
Promos are offered on a limited basis
Before calling them “FAKE,” you should know that limited promo seats are available for any given flight route. If all promo seats are sold out on your chosen flight, you will only be able to view and book the next lowest regular fare. Get ahead of other bookers by booking your flights as soon as possible. The airline also limits promo seats on certain dates and rarely offer them on “black-out dates,” which may include peak periods such as holidays, festival dates, and other busy dates for air travelers.
In case you cannot find the promo prices advertised on the announcement, you may follow these tips to confirm whether a promo is fake or not:
Make sure the promo has not yet expired.
Confirm that your chosen travel dates match the travel period posted on the announcement.
Check prices on other dates, perhaps days to months before or after your intended travel.
Check prices on other flight routes and destinations mentioned on the promo announcement.
All-in fares & base fares
Philippine Airlines usually advertises “all-in” fares on their sale announcement. The all-in fare is the lowest fare that may be booked and already includes the base fare, airport fees, and government taxes. It does not include optional add-ons like check-in baggage, meals, travel insurance and may not include fees and taxes charged on departure from certain airports.
Where to find promo codes & coupons?
Promo and coupon codes should be included in the announcement along with other important details.
Promos may be booked without a credit card
In addition to credit cards, PAL also accepts payment using selected ATM cards and offline over-the-counter at authorized payment centers.
