Travel News Asia Latest Travel News Podcasts Videos Wednesday, 29 August 2012

Philippine Airlines has placed a firm order with Airbus for 34 A321ceo, 10 A321neo and 10 A330-300s.

The aircraft are being purchased under a major fleet modernisation programme at the airline, with deliveries starting in 2013.

The single aisle A321 aircraft are being purchased to enhance the airlines product offerings on domestic and regional routes, as well as to support alliances with its partner airlines.

The widebody A330s will be operated on higher demand regional routes and longer range services to the Middle East and Australia.

PAL has not yet unveiled its engine selections for the aircraft.

The orders we are placing with Airbus will play a key role in revitalising PAL and growing trade and tourism in the country, said PAL Chairman Lucio Tan and PAL President Ramon S. Ang. With these aircraft we will be able to offer more passengers the best the industry has to offer across our Asia Pacific network. At the same time, we will benefit from the low operating costs associated with new generation aircraft and the reduced impact on the environment.
