Philippine Flights to Brisbane halted

Philippines' largest airline Philippine Airlines (PAL) will stop flying to Brisbane, Australia due to weak demand.

Barely seven months after adding the new route to its international network, the airline announced on Thursday that flights to Brisbane will be indefinitely suspended starting Oct. 31, while flights to Melbourne will be cut to three times a week from the current five.

Flights to Sydney however were unaffected and remains to be one of PAL's most popular destinations.

"Market conditions and the onset of the lean season necessitated some changes in the number of destinations and frequency of flights the flag carrier mounts to Australia," PAL spokesperson Cielo Villaluna said.

Brisbane is the third most popular tourist destination in Australia, next to Sydney and Melbourne. It is renowned for its rich culture, architecture and landscape and is famous for its stature as a world city.
