Emirates and Philippine Airlines have announced that they have expanded their interline partnership.
Now, Emirates’ passengers will be able to access to domestic points in Philippine Airlines’ network via Cebu and Clark, adding to the previously announced interline connections via Manila. Destinations include Bacolod, Butuan, Cagayan De Oro, Davao, Iloilo, Caticlan and Puerto Princesa via Cebu; as well as Cebu, Caticlan and Busuanga via Clark.
Covering all three gateways in the Philippines served by Emirates – Manila, Cebu and Clark – this partnership expansion will provide easy connectivity for passengers to reach even more destinations in the Philippines using a single ticket and convenient baggage policy.

Philippine Airlines’ passengers can also benefit from the enhanced interline agreement and book Emirates-operated flights to Amman, Birmingham, Cape Town, Dammam, Dublin, Lisbon, Manchester, Muscat, and Riyadh via Dubai. The Philippine national carrier operates daily flights between Manila and Dubai, enabling convenient and easy connections to cities in Europe, Africa, and other parts of the Middle East.
The arrangement allows for passengers to obtain their boarding passes and check through their baggage all the way to final destination, much like in any other interline agreement.
The expansion comes months after Emirates and Philippine Airlines first announced their interline agreement. Emirates has been flying to the Philippines since 1990 and currently operates 25 weekly flights to Manila, Cebu and Clark. The airline is also the only air carrier to offer a First-Class product on flights to Manila, serving premium travellers in the market.
