Philippine Airlines (PAL) has taken delivery of its first A321 in what is the first of 64 new Airbus aircraft ordered by the airline under a major fleet modernisation program that includes 44 A321s and 20 A330s.
The airline will operate the A321s in a two-class configuration primarily on international routes across the Asian region as well as on selected domestic flights.
The A321 joins an Airbus fleet at PAL that already includes 22 A320-family aircraft operating on domestic and regional routes, and nine in service with its budget subsidiary PAL Express. The carrier also operates eight A330s and seven A340-300s.
PAL will take delivery of the first of its 20 new A330s this year. The carrier is also adding four A340-300s to its fleet for deployment on new nonstop services to Europe, which are scheduled to begin in September.
