Philippine Airlines is continuing to return aircraft from storage as it looks to meet the demand across its network.
Per Cirium data, another Airbus A321 has returned from storage to active service. Now, thanks to reporting from Flightglobal, backing up continued dialogue, the airline is eyeing a new aircraft order.
Additional planes being brought back into service and potentially ordered will aid Philippine Airlines greatly in making its existing network more reliable, adding destinations and beefing up its reliability as described by the aviation publication.
75 aircraft in-service by year’s end is the company’s goal, which would be a sizeable increase in their active fleet towards the backend of 2022. Thus far, 2023 has been about reactivating aircraft, planning for the future and pushing forward regarding its recovery.
Philippine Airlines in June said it would be phasing out its Boeing 777s and were also eyeing a replacement for the A330 while confirming it would order nine A350-1000 aircraft as those 777 replacements. However, it still seeks additional capacity.
