After putting off a much-awaited sale a few days ago, Philippine Airlines (PAL) kicks off this week with its New Year Sale 2020, with flights from the Philippines starting as low as ₱20!
Similar to its flight deals in December 2019, PAL’s New Year Sale lets you enjoy cheap flights good for more than one person to the carrier’s domestic and international routes. One-way domestic base fares go as low as ₱20 per passenger, while round-trip international base fares start as low as US$20. All flights require a minimum of two passengers, and are available for Economy, Premium Economy, and Business classes.
Booking period: 20 Jan to 2 Feb 2020
Travel period: 1 Feb to 10 Dec 2020

Is this a good deal?
Other than putting solo travellers at a disadvantage, PAL’s New Year Sale 2020 hasn’t let us down so far and has been well worth the wait. Normally, anything under ₱1,000 for a round-trip domestic flight ticket is a great bargain. We’re definitely not complaining about the ₱2,280 (or ₱1,140) all-in fare good for two persons, either — and with Boracay as the destination, especially!
On the other hand, while the cheapest available overseas flights are limited to hardly accessible and visited routes (Davao to Manado and Zamboanga to Kota Kinabalu), the rest of the international options aren’t bad all the same. Manila to Taipei for US$89.50 each, anyone? And in case you need a little refresher, you’ll be enjoying these flights with the country’s only four-star airline.
