Like Hidilyn Diaz, You Too Can Be a Philippine Airlines 'Forever Flyer'
Philippine Airlines has announced a promo that will give its customers the chance to be a “Forever Flyer,” the same prize it awarded the country’s first Olympic gold medalist Hidilyn Diaz.
The country’s flag carrier has launched its “Forever Flyer Raffle Promo,” which gives loyal customers a chance to win a lifetime supply of flights. A total of eight lucky passengers will win 80,000 miles per year for as long as they live, while 80 more winners will be given 8,000 miles per year, also for life.
Passengers will earn raffle entries for the promo when they book PAL flights between August 8 and December 15. Customers will need to provide their Mabuhay Miles number when booking their flights. They are still eligible to earn raffle entries even if they rebook their flights as long as the tickets are not refunded.
PAL will announce the winners of the raffle promo on its social media pages. Winners may redeem their prizes on January 1, 2022.
"We value your continued patronage,” Ria Domingo, the company’s vice president for marketing, said on Sunday. “This raffle promo is Philippine Airlines' special way of giving loyal customers the great opportunity to win these exciting prizes and fly with PAL for free for life. The sooner you book, the greater the chance to win these rewards."
PAL has reported massive losses as flights have ground to a halt since the start of the pandemic last year. In May, it was reported that the Lucio Tan-led airline might file for Chapter 11 bankruptcy in the U.S.
But the legacy carrier, which is celebrating its 80th year this year, is still standing. According to Domingo, the promo “aims to thank its passengers for their loyalty and patronage that sustained the flag carrier through eight decades of operations on a global network of flights.”
