Philippine Airlines (PAL) is upgrading flight services to Auckland with tri-class Airbus A330-300 aircraft starting on June 17, increasing the overall route capacity by 22 per cent.

The bigger A330 aircraft replaces the smaller A340 used on the non-stop route that operates three times a week. The current A340 service has 254 seats while the A330 aircraft has 309 seats.

PAL began flying nonstop from Manila to the New Zealand city of Auckland on December 6, 2017.


  1. I think A330 and A340 has the same size. But I think the A340 is much heavier though.
