  • Read more 16APR2014: Philippine Airlines to deploy B777s on flights to the US
    Philippine Airlines (PR, Manila) will deploy its fleet of new B777-300(ER)s on flights to the United States following the country's re-classification to Category 1 by the US Federal Aviation Administration.

    In a statement, the Filipino national carrier said it would deploy six Boeing 777-300ERs on flights to Los Angeles Int'l and San Francisco, CA in the United States within a month’s time. Services currently operate onboard a B747-400. For its flights to Honolulu and Guam Int'l, PAL will continue to utilize its fleet of A330-300s and A320-200s.

    PAL President & Chief Operating Officer Ramon S. Ang said: “Your flag carrier welcomes the return of the country’s aviation rating to Category 1. This is a culmination of the government’s hard work, as exemplified by the efforts of the Civil Aviation Authority of the Philippines, to upgrade the country’s international aviation safety standards.”
  • Read more 13APR2014: US, European regulators lift sanctions on Filipino carriers
    Philippine Airlines (PR, Manila) and Cebu Pacific Air (5J, Manila) have been given the go-ahead to add flights to the United States after the Federal Aviation Administration promoted the south-east Asian nation to Category 1 safety status having been downgraded to Category 2 in January 2008.

    In a statement, the FAA said the Philippines' return to Category 1 status was based on a March 2014 FAA review of the Civil Aviation Authority of the Philippines (CAAP).

    "A Category 1 rating means the country’s civil aviation authority complies with ICAO standards. With the International Aviation Safety Assessment (IASA) Category 1 rating, the Filipino air carriers can add flights and service to the US and carry the code of US carriers," it said.

    Philippine Airlines currently serves Los Angeles Int'l, Honolulu, San Francisco, CA, Toronto Pearson and Vancouver Int'l and has outlined plans to add new East Coast destinations including New York JFK, Miami Int'l and Chicago O'Hare using its new fleet of B777-300(ER)s. For its part, Cebu intends to enter the Guam and Hawaiian markets in the shorterm.

    In a related development, following extensive lobbying by the CAAP, the European Commission has removed Cebu Pacific from the bloc's Banned Operator's List paving the way for it to begin flights to Europe.

    "Following last year's removal of Philippine Airlines from the safety list, this is seen as further proof of the gradual improvement in air safety in the Philippines," the Commission said its latest update.

    The bloc has, however, maintained its embargo on the country's other airlines.

    Philippine Airlines (PR, Manila) has adjusted an existing sales agreement with Airbus Industrie (AIB, Toulouse Blagnac) and ordered eight more A321neos but at the same time cancelled orders for five additional A330-300s. In 2012, the Filipino national carrier ordered ten A330-300s and 44 A321s - ten ceos and 34 neos - from Airbus. The new order was announced by the European manufacturer in its March sales round-up.
  • Read more 02APR2014: PAL, AirAsia Zest eye int'l flights using local secondary hubs
    Philippine Airlines (PR, Manila) is planning to develop new routes to Japan from its secondary hubs the Senior Vice President for Airline Operations, Ismael S. Gozon, has told the Filipino press.

    “We now fly twice daily from Cebu to Tokyo Narita, and we are studying the new destinations. There is a big demand in Davao and Cuyo and we’ll try to service these markets,” he told Business Monitor.

    Philippine Airlines launched twice daily flights from Manila to Tokyo Haneda late last month.

    In a related development, AirAsia Zest (Z2, Manila) has announced plans to develop Kalibo in a secondary hub. According to the PhilippineFlightNetwork, the AirAsia (AK, Kuala Lumpur Int'l) subsidiary intends to base an unspecified number of aircraft and air crew at the airport to operate 320 weekly flights by July.

    AirAsia Zest sees the airport as a springboard into the Chinese market with flights to Guangzhou, Wenzhou, Chengdu, Ningbo, Changsha Datuopu, Xiamen and Hangzhou planned.

    Existing domestic services to Manila will be increased as will flights to Seoul Incheon, Taipei Taoyuan, Beijing Capital, Busan, Shanghai Pudong and Wenzhou.
  • Read more 31MAR2014: Cebu Pacific pleads its case before the European Commission
    Cebu Pacific Air (5J, Manila) has once again applied to the European Commission to be struck off its Banned Operators List as it pushes to launch services to Europe.

    All Filipino airlines were banned from Europe in 2010 after various safety concerns were discovered during an assessment of the country's aviation infrastructure. By virtue of its improved track record, Philippine Airlines (PR, Manila) was struck off the list late last year paving the way for flights to London Heathrow in November.

    However, the BusinessMirror reports that Cebu representatives have now joined officials from the Civil Aviation Authority of the Philippines (CAAP) in Belgium to argue their case.

    “Cebu Pacific representatives are now with CAAP officials in Brussels to present their case before the European Union. They are applying for the lifting of their ban to fly to Europe,” CAAP Deputy Director John C. Andrews said.

    Both Cebu and Philippine Airlines are eagerly awaiting the results of a January US Federal Aviation Administration audit of the CAAP which could lead to the country's promotion to a Category 1 safety status. The attainment of Category 1 would allow both carriers to increase frequencies and launch new services to the United States.
