PAL launches new Premium Economy Experience

Four Star carrier Philippine Airlines is introducing a new Premium Economy experience that enables smart, practical travelers to avail of a high-value inflight alternative to full business class or mainstream economy class service.

Premium Economy is one of a series of product innovations being rolled out by the award-winning flag carrier in an ongoing program to obtain a 5-Star quality service rating.

The PAL Premium Economy product features a complete international travel experience from priority check-in to extra-comfortable premium seats and an enhanced meal service in a private cabin onboard Airbus A350 and selected A330 aircraft.  Domestic passengers may also avail of upgraded service and extra-legroom seats on flights operated by A330, A321 Classic and Bombardier Q400 Next Generation aircraft.

PAL President and Chief Operating Officer Jaime J. Bautista said, “With the new Premium Economy experience, we are inviting our customers to enjoy an elevated level of comfort and convenience. This service innovation will build on the foundation of our solid network of international and domestic routes, which in turn are made possible by a fleet of versatile, advanced and customer-friendly airplanes.”

For her part, PAL Marketing Vice President Ria C. Domingo said, “PAL’s new Premium Economy Class is a smart choice that provides the best value for passengers looking for a more comfortable flight, whether they’re traveling for business or leisure. Our goal is to address the needs of all sectors of the aviation market, and this product offers the best of both worlds – a leveled-up experience from economy class with a touch of comfort and convenience from business class.”
