Philippine Airlines is planning to expand its
Australian operations when it returns to Brisbane in March 2010.
PAL is eyeing a twice-weekly service to Brisbane in the Australian
State of Queensland, and twice a week via Melbourne, utilizing the
302-seater Airbus 330-300 aircraft.
PAL will continue to fly to Sydney and Melbourne
five times a week. Sydney will be served exclusively by PAL's new
Boeing 777-300ER aircraft which features the latest Recaro
full-flat seats in Business Class and Weber seats with in-seat
videos in Economy.
“The addition of Brisbane service, our third
destination in the country, is expected to boost PAL’s market
performance as the Australian economy remains resilient amidst the
crippling worldwide recession,” said PAL President Jaime J.
Bautista. “With the Brisbane service, we expect to make the
existing Australian routes more profitable as we cater to more
passengers flying to and from the country including the Filipino
migrant community, tourists and businessmen considering its
constantly growing market.”
