PAL Group Update
Philippine Airlines president Jaime Bautista discusses the performance of PAL’s seven destinations in the Middle East, all of which have been added since 2013, and new daily service to London. PAL is now planning to increase capacity to the US and China and is looking at potential new destinations in Europe. PAL is expanding and modernizing its fleet over the next few years with the delivery of A321neos, A350-900s and Dash 8-Q400s. PAL now faces capacity constraints at its main hub in Manila but has been pursuing expansion at Cebu and other secondary cities and is confident potential projects to squeeze more capacity out of Manila will eventually be implemented.
