Even without the recent 4-Star rating from Skytrax, every Filipino knows how premium the “fly” is when it is with Philippine Airlines (PAL). Ever since PAL’s first flight from Makati to Baguio 77 years ago, the airline had never really stopped beating their own second-to-none standards.
With its 8th Bombardier Q400 type aircraft, what are the “more” treats expected for the passengers?
Philippine Airlines is no longer just a Manila-centric airline. Our new aircraft and our new hubs are a winning combination that will help expand our market reach both domestically and worldwide. This is imperative for a global airline, and we must sustain and build on our hard-won 4-Star rating.
– PAL President and Chief Operating Officer, Dr. Jaime J. Bautista.
More Time : Faster cruise speed gives you more time to enjoy the destination.
Bombardier Q400 fleets travel 30% faster. This efficiency pleases passengers may the reason of the trip be for vacation or for work. Bask with more time at the destination or accomplish more objectives at a business meeting. Faster cruise speed also comforts the passengers that flight schedules are followed smoothly.
More In-Flight Comfort : This is why there is “Q” in “Bombardier Q400”.
The “Q” stands for quiet. Yes, the faster travel time does not compromise the sound of the aircraft’s traverse regardless of how lengthy the haul is. Is not that a conducive auditory reception to at least get a bit of prophylactic rest before reaching your destination?
In time for Holy Week, PAL opened a link from Davao to Siargao, a fast-rising destination for surfers and adventure seekers. Siargao joins Tagbilaran, Zamboanga, Manila, Clark and Cebu as destinations from Davao. PAL is now increasing the Davao-Bohol flights daily, and plan to increase Davao-Clark flights in the coming months.
Haute interior also pampers you. These are premium seats, wider windows, spacious leg room, higher ceiling and larger luggage bins. I always believe that the flight experience should be remembered like staying in a flying hotel with a “from the heart” kind of service. Flights with PAL are! Truly, a Buong Pusong Alaga.
PAL is also assessing the request of DOT Secretary Teo to launch international routes directly from Davao International Airport, possibly to BANGKOK or a point in JAPAN.
More Worth of Your Money : Consistently values you from the Heart.
It is not just about reaching point B from point A. It is about the entire memory from booking, boarding, flying and disembarking. A lot of passengers auto-destroyed their trip due to dissatisfaction from delayed flights while others from an undesirable service culture of airline staff. There is nothing more costly than bad emotions during a travel. A memory of a smooth trip is more healthy to cherish than a memory of a seat sale. That is proven and true since 1941.
Philippine Airlines is the country’s first and only 4-Star airline, joining 42 other carriers like Emirates, Japan Airlines and British Airways.
From that five-seater Beech model 18 aircraft to now’s 86-seater Bombardier Q400 NG to the luxurious, first in Southeast Asia Airbus A321neo this June, Asia’s first airline had flown literally and idiomatically, a lot. The five stars by then will just be a fortification and notoriety. We all know which airline in the Philippines really satisfies the Filipino people, from the heart.
