As air traffic begins to recover from the epidemic, Philippine Airlines said on Wednesday that it will place an order for nine wide-body Airbus A350-1000 aircraft. This will allow the airline to increase its fleet and route network.
According to a statement released by the airline, the new aircraft will be used to run non-stop flights from Manila to several locations in North America, including the east coast of the United States and Canada.
Reuters reported on Tuesday that Philippine Airlines was close to reaching an agreement to purchase 10 Airbus airplanes. This is the latest indicator of a revival in the market for wide-body jets, according to sources cited by Reuters.
