Philippine Airlines has announced that it will be upgrading its equipment for Manila-Iloilo route with an Airbus A330-300 aircraft in one of its three daily flights.
PAL on Tuesday conducted a commercial probing flight (PR 141) on the Iloilo route using the A330.
The airline said the twin-aisle aircraft can seat up to 302 passengers or almost twice the capacity of their Airbus A320 fleet, a company statement said on Tuesday.
The A330 can also carry up to 22 tons of cargo, enough to accommodate Iloilo’s fresh produce and other freight regularly bound for Manila and other international destinations.
