Philippine Airlines breaks into world’s top 50 carriers

Aug 28, 2018 | admin

The Philippines’ flag carrier is flying high after it was named one of the top 50 best airlines in the world.

The United Kingdom-based consultancy firm Skytrax released its annual list of the world’s best airlines where Philippine Airlines (PAL) cracked the top 50, now ranked 49th or 18 notches higher than its position the previous year.

PAL was also ranked by Skytrax as the number 2 most improved airline for the year. This comes five months after it was certified as the country’s first 4-star airline, also by Skytrax.

PAL recently fetched from Toulouse, France its brand new A350 900 XWB aircraft by Airbus.

“This Airbus will become the new flagship of the young and trendsetting Philippine Airlines fleet — raising the standards for cabin comfort for our beloved passengers especially for long flights,” says PAL president and COO Jaime J. Bautista.

The Skytrax rankings are based on the impressions of 20.36 million travelers from more than 100 different countries. The survey, which covered more than 335 airlines, measured 49 parameters ranging from boarding procedures to seat comfort to the quality of service.
