Philippine Airlines ranks amongst top ten most improved airlines
Philippine Airlines (PAL) has been recognised as being among the World’s 10 Most Improved Airlines, a category within the Skytrax World Airline Awards.
The airline was ranked at six, and its position amongst the World’s Top 100 Airlines 2017 has also jumped to the 67th spot this year from 83 in last year’s rankings.
The flag carrier is vying to become a five-star airline by 2020 through expanding its network, acquiring new aircraft and service innovations.
PAL rolled out the first newly refurbished A330-300 on Manila-Honolulu flights last month.
Meanwhile, the other A330 tri-class planes will be used for flights between Manila and Melbourne, Sydney, Singapore, Hong Kong, Shanghai, Tokyo Haneda and Narita, and Osaka.
The airline is also set to acquire six Airbus A350-900, due for delivery in June 2018.
