Philippine Airlines has just received delivery of another Boeing 777-300ER aircraft. This will be the fifth Boeing 777 to join the PAL fleet out of a total six that have been ordered. The new addition brings Philippine Airlines total fleet count up to 45 aircraft.

The arrival of the new aircraft from Boeing's plant in Everett, Washington is just in time as PAL prepares to initiate its aggressive route expansion launching service to 12 new destinations in Australia, Asia, and the Middle East in 2013 alone.

Philippine Airlines is expected to launch direct service from Manila to Brisbane, Perth, and Darwin in Australia on June 1, 2013. Just one day later, Guangzhou in China will be launched on June 2, 2013. The Australian services will be operated with A320-200 aircraft.

PAL's Boeing 777-300ER features a dual-class configuration with seating for up to 370 people with 42 in Business Class and 328 in Economy Class. All seats include personal audio-video on demand entertainment units while Business Class passengers get to enjoy PAL's new full flat business seats for additional comfort.

Philippine Airlines' Boeing 777 fleet is well suited to PAL's long-haul routes to Canada and its regional destinations in Hong Kong and China. In the near future, Philippine Airlines will be introducing the first onboard iPads of any Asian airline on its services between Manila and North America. The iPad units will be available for rent to passengers for an additional fee.
