MANILA, Philippines - Philippine Airlines (PAL) said it will increase flights to Iloilo to twice daily starting on Saturday, October 15.

This came after the airline suspended flight operations to Iloilo from September 28 to October 2 in connection with the transition process of the spin-off/outsourcing program, PAL said in a statement released Saturday.

It resumed flights to and from the Visayan province last October 3.

"The flag carrier aims to further increase its frequencies to Iloilo and other domestic destinations once manpower requirements are fully met by the third-party service providers," the airline said.

PAL implemented an outsourcing program last October 1, affecting some 2,300 airline workers involved in its airport services, catering and call center reservations.

The Philippine Airlines Employees Association has continued its protest against the outsourcing program.
