PAL Ups Fleet with Delivery of one more A330
The Philippine Airlines fleet is growing again. PAL re-acquired an Airbus A330 to beef up the flag carrier's network in time for the summer season. The A330, RP-C8786, was flown to Manila on January 31 from Nîmes-Alès-Camargue-Cévennes Airport in France via Dubai, by a 13-person team led by Captains George Gilbert Gan and Francis Isidro. Offering 18 Business Class, 24 Premium Economy and 267 Economy seats, the widebody aircraft will be deployed on routes to Hawaii, Australia, and various points in Asia. With the pandemic receding and air travel recovering, PAL plans to further expand the fleet in the coming months.
