la Cie envisage une renovation de sa flotte avec un achat de +/-100 machines en MC & LC
http://www.air-cosmos.com/a-la-une/phil ... vions.html

Actuellement
- MC c'est exclusivement Airbus (inclus pour filliale low cost Air Phil Express)
- LC un mixe Airbus 330/340 ( majoritaire en nombre) et Boeing 747/777, mis a part les B777 récents c'est du materiel +/- ancien

A suivre belle bagarre en vue entre les 2 avionneurs et a la clé une virginité pour revenir en Europe ... avant que Cebu Pacific s'y positionne ;) et bien sur aux USA ou il y a un tres tres gros marché a (re)prendre, c'est incroyable le Nb de personnes que j'ai vu a MNL s'enregistrer pour les USA, cote Ouest, avec China Southern via CAN !

Une expansion sur l'Europe dont Paris

PAL Sets New Western Destinations

MANILA, Philippines — Flag carrier Philippine Airlines (PAL) will add direct flights to Toronto, Canada by end of this year and service New York, Paris, France, Rome and other destinations in Europe by February, 2013, declared new President Ramon S. Ang.

He made the announcement as he welcomed PAL’s third Boeing 777-300ER, the latest addition to the airline’s fleet, the other night (July 23, 2012) in Makati City.

In the months ahead, three more Boeing 777s, the aircraft of choice for long-haul flights worth around USD$300 million each, will be delivered to PAL, he added.

The first three were already delivered in November, 2009, January, 2012 and June, 2012. The 370-seater B777s currently fly to Vancouver, Japan, Hong Kong, Australia and Japan (via Cebu).

While to date, PAL has no alloca-

tions for the Canadian, American and European destinations it targets to serve, Ang is confident. “The Civil Aviation Authority of the Philippines (CAAP) will help us,” he said by way of explanation but declined to elaborate.

At present, “Our number one priority is to turn around PAL by tapping into the strengths of San Miguel Corporation (which recently took management control of the airline) and the Lucio Tan Group of Companies. As PAL President, I am committed to transforming our airline’s business operations.”

“Our growth strategy for Philippine Airlines is simple: modernization of its fleet, the expansion of its network, and improvements in passenger service,” the President enumerated.

“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.”

Laying the ground for its re-fleeting and route expansion plans, PAL also launched major customer-oriented innovations resulting from its initial collaboration with SMC, such as Book & Buy ticketing kiosks to be installed at selected Petron gas stations, Apple inflight iPads for entertainment onboard trans-Pacific flights and new in-flight dishes from five top-rated guest chefs.

The "Book and Buy" ticketing kiosks at selected Petron gas stations will allow passengers on-the-go to book a PAL or AirPhil Express flight to any domestic destination. They operate using wireless accessibility powered by Wi-Tribe 4G technology and Eastern Communications.

Future system upgrades of the kiosks will enable motorists to buy regional and international tickets as well.

Each electronic kiosk has a touch-screen panel for easy browsing through the travel routes and dates. Passengers may opt to have their itinerary emailed directly to their personal email account or for printing on the spot. Ticket payment may be through credit card (Visa or MasterCard) or any automated teller machine (ATM).

Cash or credit card payments may also be made at the Petron San Miguel Food Avenue (SMFA) cashier.

The pilot kiosk were online starting yesterday (July 24) at Petron Bel-Air Square in Makati. Other Metro Manila Petron stations to have the kiosks are Connecticut Greenhills, C-5 McKinley and Filinvest. More will follow in the coming months.

10 - A321 NEO,
10 - A330-300,
... tout ça est livrable entre 2013 et 2015.

Philippine Airlines to resume London Gatwick from December


Philippine Airlines has reportedly set December 1 as the date it will resume its Manila to London Gatwick flights following its recent extrication from the EU Banned Operators List. The flights will likely be operated, at least initially, with a fleet of recently acquired ex-Iberia (IB, Madrid Barajas) A340-300s. The Philippines will hold discussions with Rome and Paris in the next six months for the resumption of flights between Manila and Rome Fiumicino and Paris CDG. Filipino Civil Aeronautics Board executive director, Carmelo Arcilla, said discussions with Rome are set for September 4-5, and that with France in January.


J'espère qu'AirFrance ne va pas encore mettre des battons dans les roues!! :twisted:

PAL puts European expansion on hold

Philippine Airlines has decided to indefinitely defer its European expansion plans less than a year after starting flights into London.

Perhaps it's not surprising. General manager Jaime Bautista told Reuters that PAL intends to focus on more profitable North Anerican routes. It could also be the fact that businessman Lucio Tan returned to PAL a few weeks ago.

PAL decided to return to Europe in November last year (see news, September 2013) after an absence of 15 years caused by financial problems and an EU blacklist (see news, July 2013).

The loss-making carrier amazed everyone by announcing it would fly into London Heathrow from day one. Normally, newcomers opt for a less convenient London airport and bide their time until a Heathrow slot becomes available. And that was what PAL did when it last served London in the 1980s.

After London, PAL had intended to expand over the course of 2014. Amsterdam, Frankfurt, Paris and Rome were all cited as future destinations by the carrier's then president Ramon Ang. But it never happened.

Indeed, the London route didn't get off to the best of starts as PAL has a shortage of long-haul aircraft. So, the service was started with an overly large (for the initial demand) B777-300ER.

The onboard accommodation featured business and economy class. But there were no fully-flat beds in the business cabin, while economy passengers found themselves sitting tightly in a ten-across layout.

But that wasn't the only minus point. PAL never secured a faster route across Russia; a situation that remains to this day.

It meant that its Manila to London flight takes an extra two hours using the "long and slow route to Europe" (see news, November 2013).

PAL's newish B777-300ERs soon proved to be too large for available demand and the route was later downgraded to a smaller A340-300.

Even though Europe has a strong Filipino community and there are trade, business and tourism links, PAL has not succeeded as it originally thought.

As Business Traveller noted last year, PAL faces intense competition — not just from KLM (the only European airline serving Manila) and Cathay Pacific (and other Asian carriers), but primarily from the Gulf airlines who operate many, many flights to the Philippines.

Indeed, only yesterday Emirates took its A380 into Manila as a "one-off" (see news, October 1). But as we all know, Emirates' A380 one-offs tend to be followed by a regular superjumbo service.

It is true that the Gulf carriers operate indirectly but, as we have pointed out many times, they operate from destinations across Europe and Scandinavia which compensates for the Gulf transit stop.

In the final analysis, PAL is a loss-making carrier. It appears to lack sufficient long-haul planes and cash reserves to fund European expansion.
