Philippine Airlines will pull out of Darwin in March 2018 but plans to continue its Brisbane-Manila route to a non-stop service. Darwin currently serves as a stopover on the Brisbane-Manila flights,  which run four times each week, but airline CEO James Batista has confirmed in an email that the Darwin-Manila services will be axed from March 24, 2018.  Batista cited "modest passenger loads" which "coupled with no yield, makes the service to Darwin economically unsustainable." The move comes as PAL shifts to direct flights between Brisbane and Manila on its new Airbus A321neo jets, which are expected to join the fleet from the end of March. "PAL will commence non-stop MNL-BNE services as soon as our A321neos are delivered and ready for operation.
