Pal-Express may be affected by the increase of flight prices in the Philippines

Philippine airlines, such as Pal-Express, may need to consider raising ticket prices to compensate for rising fuel costs as the local currency takes a dive. The Philippine Peso is currently at a 12-year low and may cause Philippine Airlines to experience a lack of demand for air travel. Philippine Airlines, owned by industry giant Lucio Tan, incurs $11 million a year in additional costs for every $1 increase in the price of a barrel of fuel. For this reason, other airlines like Pal-Express may have to adjust their prices accordingly.

Philippine Airlines to launch direct flights from New York to Manila

Philippine Airlines is expanding its route capacity by adding a new non-stop flight between the capital of the USA and the Capital of the Philippines. The new route to JFK airport is part of the airline's winter schedule. At 15 hours of flight time, the new route gives passengers a choice to leave out the odd stopover (although for some people a stopover is like an extra holiday). The current Philippine Airlines service to New York, which only recommenced in 2015 after a 17 year hiatus, includes a time-sucking and inefficient stop in Vancouver. The airline—which was recently upgraded from three to four stars by Skytrax, also flies to the American cities of San Francisco, Los Angeles, as well as the Canadian capital Toronto, from Manila.
