MANILA—Flag carrier Philippine Airlines (PAL) on Monday warned the public against a fake advertisement circulating online.

The fake advertisment has been circulating on Facebook recently, saying that PAL will give away free tickets in line with its anniversary.

“Get 2 of 268 FREE Philippines Airline Tickets on their 28th Anniversary!” the advertisement read when the Philippine News Agency searched for it in some Facebook posts.

Some Facebook users have typed “Thank you PAL for the free tickets” upon sharing the ad.

The carrier noted that this false advertising through the misuse of Facebook will not be tolerated.

PAL said it has already reported to concerned authorities the said false ad.

“The full force of the law shall be applied to those found guilty of carrying out fake ads,” the airline said in a statement.

Meanwhile, PAL reminded the public that its advertisements and promotional materials are only released via its official Facebook page, and through its website, www.philippineairlines.com.

The airline also uses traditional platforms such as print, radio, television, it added.
