Philippine Airlines Expanding Australian Operations

Travel News Asia Latest Travel News Podcasts Videos Monday, 7 December 2009

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 PALs 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.
