Philippine Airlines Part 2: more expansion to Australia and China as A321neos arrive in 2017

Premium Analysis

Philippine Airlines (PAL) is planning more international growth over the next year or two with a focus on Australia, China, the US and potentially Europe. Nonstops for Brisbane and more capacity for Sydney are in the pipeline for Australia, while in the Chinese market PAL is looking to launch Chengdu.

In Europe PAL is considering adding a second European destination in 2018, with Frankfurt and Rome under consideration. PAL has already added capacity to Europe this year by upgrading its London Heathrow service to daily.

This is the second in a series of analysis reports on the Philippines market. The first report focused on PAL’s Middle East operation, which could be reduced in 2017 amid intensifying competition and weakening demand.
