Where does Philippine Airlines fly?
As well as flying to the Philippines, the flagship airline goes to many international destinations.These destinations include Brisbane, Darwin, Melbourne, Toronto, Vancouver, Shanghai, Xiamen, General Santos, Davao, Kalibo, Manila, Puerto Princesa, Dammam, Busan, Seoul, Taipei and many others. Philippine Airlines has codeshare agreements with All Nippon Airways, Cathay Pacific, Etihad Airways, Gulf Air, Hawaiian Airlines, Malaysia Airlines, Turkish Airlines and WestJet.
Philippine Airlines is the only airline that flies non-stop from Manila to London and flies 5x weekly, making it the only airline flying to the philippines from London directly. They currently has the strong objective of becoming a five-star airline, following a 29 month administration that favoured cost efficiency over passenger comfort in five years with service innovations, route network expansion and fleet modernisation as its flagship initiatives, guided by a new brand philosophy -"Heart of the Filipino".
Restoring the prestige to be at the level of a legacy carrier will be beneficial both for the company and the country as it will increase passenger count going in the Philippines and will leave a good image of the country where ever the carrier flies. The shift in direction comes at a perfect moment in time, as the Philippines' economy has been one of the fastest growing in Asia over the last couple of years.
The economic prosperity will be further improved by the carrier's new course of action, as they will create more jobs both directly and indirectly and help serve a larger amount of passengers worldwide.

Philippine Airlines’ new Airbus A350 takes first flight
The first of six Airbus A350-900 aircraft set to be delivered to Philippine Airlines has taken its maiden flight from Airbus’s industrial facility in Toulouse, France.
Philippine Airlines aims to take delivery of four of its A350s within this year. Where exactly the aircraft will fly, the airline has yet to formally announce, though it has stated in the past the aircraft will operate on new routes to North America – notably the US East Coast – and Europe.
That being said, despite recently announcing that its flights between Manila and New York would be switching to non-stop this October – a route the A350 would be ideally placed to operate – the airline’s Boeing 777-300ER aircraft is currently earmarked to fly the route.
The aircraft will be three-class, offering Airspace cabins that Philippine Airlines describes as being its “most luxurious business class, premium economy and economy class cabins to date”.
Philippine Airlines has been on a mission to upgrade its cabin offerings over the past year, including by retrofitting its A330-300 with a new three-class configuration that notably features a Thompson Vantage XL business class seat.
Meanwhile, the carrier has also begun taking delivery of its medium-range A321neo aircraft, which will be available on its Manila-Brisbane route next month. These notably include 12 fully flat business class seats, making Philippine Airlines the first Asian carrier to offer such seating on a narrow-body aircraft to Australia.

Philippine Airlines may be affected by the increase of flight prices in the Philippines
Airlines in the Philippines, such as Philippine Airlines, 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 expereience 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 airlines 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.

Philippine Airlines is looking at Seattle-Manila flights with new aircraft
Philippine Airlines is expanding its fleet, was accepted for the TSE-Pre expedited security screening program at U.S. airports, and earned a coveted SkyTrax four-star rating for great customer service. As well as this, Philippine Airlines is planing on launching a Davao-Siargao route this month. The new route will begin on March 25, flying on Mondays, Wednesdays, Fridays, and Sundays, said PAL in a statement on Monday, March 5. "We envision Davao to become a major hub in our network in the years to come that will spur tremendous economic and tourism activities in the region," said PAL senior assistant vice president for Visayas and Mindanao Harry Inoferio.

Philippine Airlines to be Southeast Asia’s first long haul narrowbody operator
The longest A321neo route from Southeast Asia will be operated by PAL. As CAPA has previously highlighted, PAL is planning to use its first six A321neos on routes of up to eight hours, connecting Manila with Australia and India.
See related report: Philippine Airlines plans Australia and India expansion using A321neos with auxiliary fuel tanks
PAL president Jamie Bautista told CAPA in Oct-2017 that Manila-Brisbane will likely be PAL’s first long haul narrowbody route. The new nonstop route is expected to be launched in Mar-2017, following delivery of PAL’s first A321neo. PAL currently uses A320ceos to serve Brisbane via Darwin. Nonstop, the nearly 6000km route is too long for A320ceos or A321ceos.
Mr Bautista said that after Manila-Brisbane PAL plans to introduce the A321neo on the slightly longer Manila-Sydney and Manila-Melbourne routes, which are currently served with A330-300s. Manila-Delhi is the last route planned for the six A321neos, which are slated to be delivered to PAL in 2018.
PAL has 21 A321neos on order, but only the first six aircraft will be used for long haul operations. The remaining 15 aircraft will be used on regional routes, and be delivered in a higher density configuration. PAL’s first six A321neos will be in a low density 176-seat configuration, and feature lie-flat sets in business class.

The carrier will fly the 777-300ER directly from Everett, Wash. to Vancouver, British Columbia where the airplanes will enter revenue service to Manila.

Philippine Airlines long haul strategy: new nonstop routes to New York JFK and Toronto
Philippine Airlines (PAL) plans to begin a new phase of trans-Pacific expansion in Aug-2018 with the launch of nonstop flights from Manila to New York following delivery of its first two A350s. Manila-New York is expected to be the first of at least four trans-Pacific routes PAL adds by the end of 2019 as part of an ambitious strategy to improve its position in the highly competitive North American market.
PAL has opted for a 295 seat three class configuration for its A350s, providing lie flat business and premium economy products in the North American market for the first time. The airline has six A350s on order, which will be used to launch at least three new US routes.
PAL is also planning to expand in Canada by upgrading Toronto to nonstop using the 777-300ER. PAL will continue operating the 777 in its three biggest trans-Pacific routes – Manila to Los Angeles, San Francisco and Vancouver – and to Toronto while the smaller A350 will be used in thinner markets.

Philippine Airlines announces non-stop service from Auckland to Manila
Passengers travelling to the Philippines from New Zealand will no longer have to stop off in Australia when flying with Philippine Airlines. The airline announced it was introducing a direct flight on its Auckland to Manila route, cutting flying times for Kiwis heading to the increasingly popular country in Southeast Asia. Philippine Airlines already flies from Auckland but will no longer stop off in Cairns on the new route, due to start in December. The national carrier will operate a a 254-seat Airbus A340 on the new direct route, the only one from New Zealand. In 2016 Air NZ announced it would start direct flights to the Philippines but later deferred it until further notice. It could also act as a stop-off destination for people travelling to other destinations on the airline's network, including the United Kingdom, Asia, North America and the Middle East, he said. In 2016, travellers voted the Palawan archipelago in the Philippines "Best Island in the World" in the annual Travel + Leisure awards for the second time.

Philippine Airlines is all set to boost its operations between Manila and London Heathrow with the deployment of its state-of-the-art 370 seater Boeing 777-300s on the route beginning September 19.
The triple7, considered the airline's flagship aircraft on US transpacific route, will soon serve MNL-UK operations to provide passengers a premium travel experience. By December, PAL will increase frequencies between the two cities from four times weekly to daily giving passengers the flexibility to choose from a wide selection of flight schedules. The B777 replaces the A340s which have served as workhorses between Manila and London Heathrow since 2013. At present, PAL has a total of 82 planes, made up of A320s, A321s, A330s, A340s and B777s as well as Bombardier Q300s and Q400s.

From October 31, Philippine Airlines will operate PR 656 (Tuesdays, Thursdays and Saturdays) departing Manila at 11:45 a.m. and PR 657 which departs from Abu Dhabi at 7:30 p.m. on the same day, the flag carrier said in a statement.
By the end of the year, Philippine Airlines said it would be offering both economy and business class seats on all Middle East flights.
The carrier flies to the following Middle East cities: 5 times weekly to Dammam, daily to Dubai, thrice weekly to Jeddah, 4 times weekly to Kuwait and daily to Riyadh.
27th June 2017
Philippine Airlines on 22 June commenced daily, domestic flights between Cebu and Tagbilaran
The short 72-kilometre hop between neighbouring islands is not served by any other airline. The route will be flown by the flag carrier with its A320s and becomes the shortest route anywhere in the world to be served at least daily by an Airbus narrow-body aircraft. The airline now operates a total of 46 domestic routes in the Philippines including 15 from Cebu. This new link means that Philippine Airlines now has a 33% share of the domestic market as measured by weekly seats compared with 43% for Cebu Pacific Air and 14% for Philippines AirAsia.
Philippine Airlines announced it had firmed seven options for the Bombardier Q400, taking its orderbook for the turboprop type to 12
Dating from a purchase agreement signed in October 2016, the Q400s will be used to replace older turboprops in the Manila-based carrier's fleet, as well as for growth. PAL's Q400s will be configured in a two-class, 86-seat layout, for which it is the launch customer. Its premium-economy seats will have a 33in pitch, while the economy-class seats are at 29in. Deliveries are due to begin next month, with the initial five aircraft all arriving this year. Another five will be handed over from March 2018, with the remainder arriving in the latter part of 2019.
Philippine Airlines in recent schedule update has filed seasonal service reduction for Manila – Honolulu route, currently served 5 times a week. From 18AUG17 to 25NOV17, service will be reduced to 4 weekly, on board Airbus A330 aircraft.

Philippines Airlines announced it was launching 5 new routes on its domestic network
Four of these involved Cebu with all new services from there operated daily. The airline is using a mix of its own A320s and turboprop aircraft flown by its subsidiary PAL Express. On three of the five new routes the national flag carrier will face competition from its main rival Cebu Pacific Air and its subsidiary CebGo. The average sector length of these new routes is 467 kilometres.
Philippine Airlines was having advanced talks with potential investors, who could acquire as much as 50% of the flag carrier
Since tycoon Lucio Tan bought back his majority stake in PAL in 2014, the airline has been searching for a strategic investor to help fund its fleet and route expansion. The airline is interested in “less than 40 percent” of PAL. The law limits foreigners to 40-percent ownership of Philippine companies.
Philippine Airlines announced it will "temporarily suspend" its Cebu-Los Angeles service effective May 30. PAL said passengers with tickets of the Cebu-Los Angeles flights dated May 30 and onwards may re-route and/or rebook their flights to Cebu-Manila-Los Angeles flights. Those with Los Angeles-Cebu flights may re-route and/or rebok their flights to Los Angeles-Manila-Cebu.

In May 2017, Philippine Airlines announced it was gradually ending domestic wide-body service on serveral key domestic routes, served by Airbus A330 and A340 aircraft. Affected routes as follow.
Manila – Cebu Last A340-300 flight operating on 27MAY17 from MNL, 29MAY17 from CEB. Last A330 flight operating on 31MAY17
Manila – Davao Last A330-300 flight operating on 31MAY17
Manila – Puerto Princesa Last A330-300 flight operating on 30MAY17
By 01JUN17, the sole domestic wide-body operation will be Manila – General Santos, served by Airbus A330-300 once a day.
Philippine Airlines adds second Singapore route from Cebu, including a direct connection to Singapore. The national carrier has confirmed that its non-stop Cebu-Singapore route will take off on 16 December 2016, operating four times a week. Flights will depart the Philippine city every Monday, Wednesday, Friday and Sunday evening and return the following morning. All services will be operated using the airline’s new 199-seat Airbus A321 aircraft. PAL already offers four daily flights between Manila and Singapore. Also launching on 16 December will be a new daily domestic service connecting Cebu with Caticlan and Clark. Caticlan is a gateway to the resort island of Boracay while Clark is an alternative option for travellers to Manila.
PAL currently has a three-star rating, sitting behind Thai Airways International with four stars, but ahead of Bangladesh Biman with two. North Korea's Air Koryo sits at the bottom of the rankings with just one star. In March, Philippine Airlines said it was targeting a five-star rating from Skytrax, the consultancy which ranks airlines and airports, by 2020 to bolster its global profile and put it on a par with larger Asian carriers like Japan's All Nippon Airways and Hong Kong's Cathay Pacific Airways. Philippine Airlines has outlined its proposed Clark hub operations as part of government's overall plan to decongest Manila Ninoy Aquino Int'l, located just 90 kilometres away. Beginning December 16, Philippine Airlines will offer a 7x weekly return service from Clark to Caticlan using Dash 8-400 equipment. The flights will benefit residents in Northern Metro Manila and Luzon due to the proximity of Clark International Airport to these areas.
