PAL Axed Ozamiz

Losing destination

March 25, 2012

Flag carrier Philippine Airlines (PAL) ceased flights to Ozamiz City today in what could be seen as the airline's first step to domestic route rationalization.

"Ozamiz has not been faring well for the airline" said Alfred Herrera, APX senior vice president for sales and marketing.

In contrast, Its low cost subsidiary, Airphil Express has more passengers since it started flying back to Ozamiz on August 8, 2011.

"Its really a budget market and it cannot sustain three airlines" he said.

Ozamiz will  however continue to be served by PAL through a code-share agreement with AirPhil Express.
