Lucio Tan’s PAL takes steps to normalize operations and address disruptions

Bilyonaryo Lucio Tan’s Philippine Airlines (PAL) has unveiled its strategic measures to counter the effects of supply chain delays and unexpected technical problems, aiming to restore normal operations and minimize disruptions.

Cielo Villaluna, PAL’s spokesperson, emphasized the airline’s commitment to optimizing flight schedules through operational adjustments.

Villaluna emphasized that PAL is actively working to enhance efficiency and reduce aircraft servicing time while upholding safety standards and ensuring aircraft reliability. By making changes to maintenance procedures, the airline aims to streamline operations without compromising on safety protocols.

IN addition to this, PAL is regularly reviewing flight capacity to ensure timely compliance with maintenance schedules. PAL is also seeking new sources of critical parts suppliers to diversify its options and improve resilience.

To bolster its fleet and address operational requirements, PAL is pursuing various initiatives.

Villaluna said the airline is in the process of acquiring an additional A321CEO, which is expected to join the PAL fleet in early July.

Lease arrangements for an extra Q400 and one A330 are also being finalized. Furthermore, PAL anticipates the return of one A320 from storage during the first week of August.

In line with its growth plans, PAL recently signed a purchase agreement for nine A350-1000 aircraft from Airbus.

These aircraft will be part of PAL’s Ultra Long Haul Fleet project, catering to non-stop services from Manila to North America, including the East Coast of the United States and Canada.

The acquisition of these A350-1000s will complement PAL’s existing fleet, which already includes two A350-900s.
