During the delivery of its third Boeing 777-300ER last week, PAL president Ramon Ang said PAL’s growth rests on the modernization of its fleet, the expansion of its network and improvements in passenger service.
“Philippine Airlines must become known for its warm, sincere and hospitable service; we operate in a very competitive environment, but one with a wealth of opportunity, the Asia-Pacific is the fastest growing market for air travel and we need to improve our competitiveness as an airline,” Ang said.
The airline will be acquiring three more 777-300ERs until November next year, 2013, completing its fleet modernization for long haul flights and replacing the aging B747 fleet.
PAL said flight crew applicants from Metro Manila and Luzon should go to the Diamond Hotel from 8 a.m. to 5 p.m. on August 11for the Airlines Cabin Crew Recruitment Tour, which will kick off a nationwide drive. Registration ends at 10 a.m.
