PAL reiterates its commitment to strengthening Filipino representation by bringing Filipino cuisine and its unique flavors around the world.
Philippine Airlines (PAL) continues to elevate their in-flight experiences with the introduction of the halo-halo, an iconic Filipino dessert, as a snack option for their Business Class passengers flying to the US mainland and Canada. This makes PAL the first airline to offer halo-halo in-flight.
First offered only on flights from Manila to San Francisco last September 2023, the dessert became a mainstay for PAL passengers flying Business Class to North America beginning December 2023.
Considered the unofficial national dessert of the Philippines, the halo-halo, which literally translates to “mix-mix,” refers not only to the combination of ingredients that it has, but also to the mixing required to combine all the flavors and textures together. A mainstay in every corner and city in the country, the halo-halo now gets elevated into a special in-flight treat, offered only by Philippine Airlines.
PAL’s halo-halo includes classic ingredients, but made with a few special tweaks. Certain ingredients are already prepared inside the glass, and the sweet treat is finished off in the skies. Its sinkers include banana, jackfruit, jelly, beans, and coconut; the ubehalaya, leche flan, vanilla ice cream, pinipig, and shaved milk are added by the cabin crew during in-flight service. Upon serving, PAL’s Business Class passengers can simply combine everything to create a sweet, fresh, and delicious mix.
