Philippine Airlines (PAL) president and chief operating officer Jaime Bautista on Wednesday said the flag-carrier will add more flights to the United States to cope with an increasing number of passengers in 2015.
“By April, we will have additional flights to San Francisco and Los Angeles,” Bautista said during a Pope Francis memorabilia exhibit held at the Ninoy Aquino International Airport Terminal 2 in Pasay City (Metro Manila).
The exhibit will run until April 30.
Bautista said they are expecting a big jump in the volume of passengers with the arrival of brand new-aircraft that the airline ordered last year.
PAL ordered 38 A321 aircraft from Airbus Industrie to add to its fleet.
Bautista said the flag-carrier’s Vancouver and Toronto flights will remain as will flights to Australia.
PAL flies five times a week to London, and the airline is studying to have a new European route.
Aside from its regular scheduled flights, it has codeshare flights with other airlines–Etihad Airways, Gulf Air, Cathay Pacific, Emirates Air and Malaysia Airlines.
