PAL tickets for Nesthy siblings


FLAG carrier Philippine Airlines on Thursday said it will provide free airplane tickets from Tokyo to Manila to Cebu for Tokyo Olympics boxing silver medalist Nesthy Petecio’s three Japan-based siblings.

“The Filipina boxer has stated that her family has been her single biggest source of inspiration, and her fervent wish is for her two sisters working in Japan to fly home for good,” PAL Spokesperson Cielo Villaluna said.

Petecio is reportedly set to give a share (balato) of her winnings with her family.

“It will be our pleasure to fly Nesthy’s siblings to Manila and to Cebu. From our hearts to yours, consider your wish granted,” PAL Marketing Vice President Ria Domingo said.  The Petecios are flying in next month.

PAL has earlier rewarded Petecio 60,000 Mabuhay Miles per year for life as part of the windfall of bonuses after she clinched the silver medal in women’s featherweight of boxing at the Tokyo Olympics.
