MANILA, May 13 — Flag carrier Philippine Airlines (PAL) has further enhanced its services by bringing its flight schedules, promo fares, advisories, products and services, including mileage points to be earned by Mabuhay Miles members between flight sectors, through WAP-enabled cellphones as an alternative means of retrieving information posted on the PAL website.

Beginning May 15, PAL is introducing the first-ever airline information mobile system called PAL mobile service, which holders of WAP-enabled mobile handsets may access by logging on to philippineairlines.mobi.

The latest PAL service enhancement, that taps the latest technological advancements in GPRS/WAP and SMS, will allow people-on-the-go to easily access flight details and other basic airline information anytime, anywhere without waiting in line at PAL ticket offices or the PAL Reservations hotline,” the company said in a statement.

The PAL Mobile Service includes such information as actual flight status, travel advisories, promo fares (buy one-take one, discount privileges, etc.), Econolight and PAL Express fares and schedules, excess baggage rates, mileage points required in redeeming award tickets for Mabuhay Miles members, and other PAL products and services –all of which and more are posted at the PAL website (philippineairlines.com).

On the other hand, flight bookings/reservations still have to be completed through the PAL website, by calling PAL Reservations (855-8888) or visiting any PAL ticket office.

The innovative PAL service, the first and only mobile airline information system in the Philippines that puts PAL on the palm of one's hands, will eventually be enhanced to feature more interactive pages. (PNA)V3/MSN
