Philippine Airlines (PAL) carried a total of 1.06 million passengers in Q1 2011 – up 7% from 942,144 passengers in the same period last year.

First quarter figures from the Civil Aeronautics Board (CAB) show that PAL’s inbound passengers stood at 477,039 and outbound, 529,212.

Translated into Revenue Passenger Kilometers (RPK) or number of passengers multiplied by distance traveled, PAL registered a total of 5-billion RPKs for the first three months of 2011. Of this number, 4.25-billion RPKs accounted for PAL’s international traffic, while the balance of 750-million RPKs represent the domestic sector.

PAL’s most traveled destinations in the region are Singapore, Bangkok, Hong Kong and South Korea, among others. The United States also contributed a large chunk of the airline’s revenues while other sectors added to the carrier’s positive passenger numbers.

Earlier, the authoritative Airline Business magazine ranked PAL as the world’s 61st largest airline. The ranking is based on RPK, which is considered the true measure of airline passenger traffic. For the last two years, PAL recorded an average of 17.8 billion RPKs in the World Airline Rankings.
