Philippine Airlines has launched a new flight
schedule to further optimize operational efficiency as the travel
sector enters the ‘lean season’.
The 'lean season' schedule will take effect
beginning today (9 August) up to 30 November 2010.
Based on the list submitted by PAL to the Civil
Aeronautics Board (CAB), routes with reduced frequencies include
those going to and from Manila and Ozamiz, Dipolog, Puerto
Princesa and Cebu. Meanwhile, there will temporarily be no
operation between Cebu and Davao. This route will be reinstated
during the peak season.
“Capacity rationalization is routinely done in
anticipation of lower passenger volume, especially tourists,
during the rainy months from August to November. It also coincides
with the reduced number of PAL pilots who left for jobs abroad,”
PAL president and chief operating officer (COO) Jaime Bautista
