Introductory fares have been released by Philippine Airlines to mark the carrier’s return on the Heathrow-Manila route after a gap of 15 years.
Return economy rates start at £593 based on travel between the launch date of November 4 and May 31 next year if booked by November 15.
The airline will operate five flights a week to London, the first European destination introduced by the airline after flights were discontinued in 1998.
New 370-seat Boeing 777-300ER aircraft will be deployed on the route.
Philippine Airlines president Ramon Ang will travel on the inaugural flight from Manila to London on November 4 before attending World Travel Market.
The carrier is looking at further European expansion with routes to Amsterdam, Rome and Paris soon to be introduced.
One third of the 349,000 European visitors travelling to the Philippines last year were from the UK.
