“As we carry out the brand promise to be a full service five star carrier of the country and be a source of pride of Filipinos everywhere, we shall continue to enhance the total travel experience along the route. We want our passengers to have the ultimate travel experience marked by comfort, inflight connectivity and the caring service of our cabin crew, embodying the Heart of the Filipino,” PAL President and Chief Operating Officer Jaime J.

“With its range and operational capability, the flag carrier will be at par with other full service carriers along the route.
