Philippine Airlines A321 SR Business Class

Philippine Airlines takes delivery of new Airbus A321neo

Philippine Airlines has introduced a new Airbus A321neo SR aircraft to serve as the primary single-aisle jetliner for Asian regional flights.

The new PAL A321neo SR joined the fleet last July after completing flight tests at the Airbus A320/A321 assembly plant in Hamburg's Finkenwerder Airport.

It is the first of a batch of 15 that will be progressively introduced into the fleet over the next few years. It is powered by two Pratt & Whitney PurePower PW1100G-JM geared turbofan engines and features Airbus 'cabin flex' configuration designed for short-range regional flights between the Philippines and East Asian destinations, including airports in greater China, central Japan, Korea, Guam and the rest of ASEAN.

Passengers will be able to enjoy enhancements in seat comfort and entertainment options onboard.

Outfitted with just 195 seats in a two-class layout, namely 12 seats in Business Class and 183 seats in Economy, the A321neo SR offers a roomier cabin than the existing 199-seater A321 Classics, with more generous legroom and personal space.

Every seat in Business and Economy sections has embedded personal video screens offering movies, TV shows and music. The myPALeSuite system allows passengers to stay connected inflight through their own personal mobile devices with myPAL Wi-Fi for free, or they may opt to surf longer with upgrade plans.

Gilbert F. Santa Maria, president of the airline, said: "Our passengers will appreciate the more comfortable layout of the aircraft.

“The A321neo’s new engines, ‘sharklet’ wingtips and other innovations also make the airplane quieter, more efficient and kinder to the environment, which is good news for the planet.”
Added Santa Maria: "Our newest A321neo will become the single-aisle mainstay for regional routes, helping PAL in our mission to boost tourism from the high-producing tourist countries in the region such as China, Japan, Korea and our ASEAN neighbours."
