PAL -- the national flag carrier of the Phillipines -- is a
long-time Boeing customer, and currently operates five Boeing
747-400s and three Boeing 737-300/-400s. PAL mounted its first
flight on March 15, 1941 and has been operating longer than any
other airline in Asia. It's route network that spans 24 foreign
cities and 18 domestic destinations.
"The acquisition of the Boeing 777-300ER allows PAL to expand
direct services between the Philippines and the United States,"
said Jaime J. Bautista, president of Philippine Airlines. "Our
passengers will also benefit from the higher level of comfort and
amenities that this high-technology aircraft brings."
Separately, PAL has signed a letter of intent with GE Commercial
Aviation Services (GECAS) to lease two Boeing 777-300ER
"The Boeing 777-300ER is a great choice for Philippine Airlines,
giving Asia's first commercial airline the most efficient airplane
in the 300-to-400 seat segment, and offering its passengers the
highest levels of comfort and reliability," said Rob Laird, vice
president - Greater China Sales, Boeing Commercial Airplanes.
