PAL Secures LHR


Abandons Gatwick

13 September 2013

Philippine Airlines (PAL) has secured daily landing slots at London's Heathrow Airport, data from Airport Coordination Limited (ACL) disclosed.

Airport Coordination Limited (ACL)
is responsible for slot allocation, and schedules facilitation at London
Heathrow, Gatwick, Stansted, London City, London Luton and Manchester airports within the UK.

Approved slots are as follows:

LHR arrival   at 14:15
LHR departure at 17:50

PAL has applied the following winter schedules:

MNL-LHR       08:20 - 14:15
LHR-MNL       17:15 - 13:50(+1)

PAL secured the landing slots via slots trading valued between 2-5 million US dollars. Commencement of flight is expected to be launch on 4 November 2013 subject to regulatory approvals.


Following the recent LHR slot grant, PAL scrapped its earlier plan to fly Gatwick and code share deals with Etihad Airways to Manila. Instead, the airline will fly direct to the Philippines. It is expected to dock at Terminal 4.

  5. Interesting read. Their application to LHR was made way way back. Even before the EU blacklist went into effect.
