Philippine Airlines has debuted its new Airbus A321neo aircraft on its Manila-Brisbane route, arriving yesterday.
The new single-aisle jet increases PAL’s services to the Queensland capital to four times weekly.
The flag carrier now flies from MNL to BNE on Monday, Wednesday, Friday and Saturday, and brings the airline’s total number of weekly flights to ports Sydney, Melbourne and Brisbane to 16.
The new plane represents an enhancement on services to Brisbane. As well as making the flight between Brisbane and Manila in less than eight hours, thanks to its two powerful Pratt & Whitney engines, the new plane features 12 full-flat Business Class seats, 156 Economy seats with more legroom, back-of-seat screens for all flyers, free wifi (subject to time and volume limits), reduced noise levels and myPAL eSuite for greater inflight entertainment selections.
On its debut flight, PAL flew 151 passengers to BNE and followed it up with 155 Manila-bound passengers.
Philippine Airlines operates more flights between the Philippines and Australia than any other carrier.
