AFL Europe announces Phillipine Airlines as Official Airline Partner

Today Philippine Airlines (PAL) was announced as the Official Airline Partner of AFL Europe. This partnership is going to assist the ongoing development of Australian Football in Europe, whilst supporting PAL’s ongoing growth of its UK & European networks.

David Cochrane, Country Manager UK & Ireland of Philippine Airlines and Ryan Davey, AFL Europe General Manager, were thrilled to announce the partnership.

Cochrane said, “Australian Football unites not only the UK and Australia but also people from all walks of life around the world. AFL Europe’s motto of ‘Structured, United & Respectful In Everything We Do’ embodies the same values we share at PAL. Therefore, we are very proud to be the Official Airline Partner of AFL Europe and we look forward to connecting their players, umpires, administrators and fans with the rest of the world.

Davey echoed Cochrane’s sentiments saying, “AFL Europe is excited to be partnering with Philippine Airlines for the 2017 Season. With their help, we can continue to provide more support to our Australian Football Community throughout Europe and ensure that we can continue to grow this great game of ours.”

PAL currently serves Sydney, Darwin, Brisbane, Cairns and Melbourne via Manila. Non-stop daily flights from London Heathrow to Manila allow passengers to connect seamlessly to PAL’s Australian destinations via its dedicated terminal.

Philippine Airlines brings the best of the Philippines and the best of the Filipino to their flights – the friendliness of the people, the beauty of the islands, the splendour of the sunset, the wonderful variety of their delicious food, the richness of their history and culture, the fun in their everyday life, the Heart of the Filipino.
