PAL unveils new flagship

The A350-900 is to become the new flagship of Philippine Airlines’ long-haul fleet after the carrier last week finalised a purchase agreement with Airbus covering the firm order for six of the aircraft, plus six options. 

The contract follows a memorandum of understanding announced earlier this year during the Singapore Airshow.

The aircraft will have a premium three-class layout and will operate on non-stop flights to the US, as well as services to new destinations in Europe. 

PAL president and COO Jaime Bautista said: “We are now defining the final layout for the aircraft.

“With the A350, we will introduce a whole new level of comfort for long-haul flights, with more personal space in all classes, a quieter cabin and the latest on-board amenities.”

Airbus chief operating officer, customers, John Leahy added: “This order underscores the A350 XWB’s position as the aircraft of choice in the larger twin-aisle category, combining extra-long range capability with the lowest operating costs in its class. 

“It will be perfect for Philippine Airlines to reinforce its position as one of Asia’s leading premium carriers, especially on its longest intercontinental routes.”

Airbus has recorded 783 firm orders for the A350 XWB from 42 customers.  www.philippineairlines.com   www.airbus.com
