Flying Sportsman Plan

from the May, 2000 issue of Undercurrent   Subscribe Now

Philippine Airlines has a nifty new program that’s perfect for divers traveling with gear. Two-year enrollment in the “Flying Sportsman Program” is only $20 and entitles divers to bring along sports equipment for one (in addition to the original baggage allowance) at no extra charge. The pass is valid on all international and Philippine flights with no limitations on flight frequency. Baggage allowances vary by sport; divers are allotted 66 lbs. of dive gear in addition to their original luggage allowance. PAL offers some attractive fares as well, including a first or business class “two-fer” from SF/LA to Manila for $2,988 for two. From there, divers can connect to local and Asian dive spots as well as Continental’s flights to Palau, Yap, and Guam. Check out PAL’s program on their website at, e-mail them at, or call 800 I FLY PAL.
