July 2008: Philippine Airlines (PAL) subsidiaries, (PAL) Express and Air Philippines (PHP) will launch operations at Manila Ninoy Aquino's new Terminal 3. The 2 carriers will operate a combined 131 weekly flights from the facility. The mainline (PAL) will continue to operate out of T2.

March 2010: The European Commission (EC)'s 13th update of its list of airlines banned from operating within the European Union (EU)'s borders includes all carriers from the Philippines and Sudan, as well as Iran Air (IRN). Philippine Airlines (PAL) currently operates to 5 North American destinations but neither it nor its affiliates fly to Europe, while Iran Air (IRN) does serve the continent.

The (EC) said it "acknowledges the recent efforts launched by the competent authorities to reform the civil aviation system in the Philippines" and that (PAL) and Cebu Air (CEB) have taken measures. However, it said it would "follow the principle of precaution" and impose a full operating ban. Sudan, the (EC) said, was guilty of "persistent noncompliance with international standards in the area of oversight." Ramp checks of Iran Air (IRN) airplanes serving the (EU), along with "serious incidents and accidents suffered by the carrier and insufficient oversight from the authority over the past year," led the (EC) to ban certain airplanes from operating. It said it plans a visit to Iran "over the next months" to verify safety oversight. It did not indicate which airplanes are banned.

The (EC) lifted some restrictions on (TAAG) Angola Airlines (ANG) and Air Koryo (KOY). Air Koryo (KOY), banned since March 2006, will be allowed to operate two specially equipped airplanes into the (EU), while (TAAG) (ANG) will be allowed to fly to any (EU) destination "under certain strict conditions with specific airplanes." Other Angolan airlines remain banned. The commission said it is "closely monitoring" airlines from Albania and Egypt. The blacklist still includes Ariana Afghan Airlines (AFG), Siem Reap Airways International (SRA), Silverback Cargo Freighters (VRB) and all airlines from 17 countries, including Indonesia.

October 2009: 2 A320-214s (2162, RP-C3228; 2183, RP-C3227), (GECAS) (GEF) leased.

March 2010: Low cost carrier (LCC) Air Philippines was re-branded as "airphil express" (PHP) to coincide with the introduction of 2 A320 airplanes and the resumption of services from Manila to Iloilo, Bacolod, Puerto Princesa, and Cagayan de Oro.

September 2010: Airphil Express (PHP), formerly known as Air Philippines, is adding A320s on lease and is about to expand internationally. It currently has 2 A320s, 4 Bombardier (BMB) Dash 8-Q400s and 3 Bombardier Dash 8-Q300s, and this month will add 1 A320, followed by another in October and +2 more in November, said Brian Hogan, (PHP) Chief Executive Advisor. The 4 airplanes coming in this year have been sourced from 2 leasing companies (Avolon and (GE) Commercial Aviation Services (GEF)), he said. Hogan said the company has also signed leases for 3 A320s to be delivered next year and is in the market to secure leases on another 3 A320s for delivery next year. It also wants to add 6 A320s in 2012, he said. All its A320s are powered by (CFM) International engines, and it plans to remain with this engine type, he added.

The airline's website shows that it serves 24 domestic destinations and that on October 27 it intends to start a daily service from Manila to Singapore.

(PHP) has chosen Changi Airport's Terminal 2, rather than the low-cost carrier (LCC) terminal, because passengers like the extra amenities at the full-service terminal, said Hogan. Being in that location will also help (PHP) interline with European airlines landing at Changi, he adds. Singapore is just the 1st of many international destinations planned. "We're ready to announce Hong Kong and are also looking at serving Singapore and Hong Kong from Cebu," said Hogan. Other destinations it plans to serve include Jakarta, Kuala Lumpur, and Bangkok, he said, adding that it is also eyeing services to Japan and Korea, although these are likely to be charters at 1st. Longer-term, it hopes to serve Macau, Shanghai, and Beijing, he said.

Even though (PHP) has stepped up from Bombardier turboprops to A320s, it has no plans to add A330s to its fleet, said Hogan. It also has no immediate plans to add more turboprops, he said.

October 2010: A320-214 (4475, RP-C8389), delivery.

November 2010: AirPhil Express (PHP) will launch 14x-weekly, Cebu - Singapore Changi service on December 1. It launched 14x-weekly, Manila - Singapore Changi service on October 27.

December 2010: (GECAS) (GEF) delivered 1 new A320 to Philippine Airlines (PAL), to be operated by AirPhil Express (PHP).

January 2011: Abacus International announced it will become the 1st Global Distribution System (GDS) to launch electronic ticketing with a Low Cost Carrier (LCC) in the Philippines, under an agreement reached with Airphil Express (PHP).

November 2011: (GECAS) (GEF), announced the delivery of a new A320 airplane to Philippine Airlines (PAL) that will be operated by Airphil Express (PHP) to expand its fleet. Airphil Express (PHP) operates a fleet of 14 airplanes to >25 destinations.

February 2012: AirPhil Express (PHP) has launched its domestic hub at Manila (formerly Clark AFB) airport (CRK).

(PHP) added 2 new domestic destinations from its Manila (MNL) base. It has begun flying 4x-weekly to Butuan (BXU) and also 3x-weekly to Pagadian (PAG), both routes operated by its A320s. The Pagadian route (flight numbers 2P010 and 2P011) operates on Tuesdays, Thursdays and Saturdays and competes directly with Cebu Pacific (CEB)’s daily flights. The Butuan route (flight numbers 2P967 and 2P968) operates Mondays, Wednesdays, Fridays and Sundays, and competes directly with (CEB)’s 3 daily flights, and a daily flight by Philippine Airlines (PAL). This raised to 27 the number of destinations served non-stop by (PHP) from Manila, of which 26 are domestic routes, with Singapore the only international service currently offered by (PHP) from the Philippine capital airport.

(PHP) launched 5 domestic routes out of the Philippines’ 2nd-largest city, Cebu (CEB). (PHP), which faces competition on all but 1 of the routes, will operate the services with its 76-seat Dash 8-Q400 airplanes. (PHP) now operates 14 routes from Cebu and expects to double its passenger numbers this year compared with last.

April 2012: Brewer, the San Miguel Corporation is investing $500 million in Philippine Airlines (PAL) and a sister airline for minority stakes, according to "Reuters."

(PAL), which reported losses of -$33.5 million for the quarter ended December 31, had temporarily slashed flight frequencies and restructuring to reduce costs since last fall.

(PAL) President Jaime Bautista said the investment will “help (PAL), the flag carrier in its re-fleeting program and make (PAL) more viable and competitive.”

According to "Reuters," “under the deal with Dr Lucio Tan's Trustmark Holdings, San Miguel will take indirect stakes of 40% in (PAL) and 49% in its low-cost carrier (LCC) partner, Air Philippines Corporation, also known as Air Phil (PHP). San Miguel, valued at $6.4 billion, will gain management control of (PAL), the country's biggest airline,” "Reuters" said.

May 2012: AirPhil Express (PHP) starts 1st international services from Clark to Singapore and Hong Kong.

July 2012: (GECAS) (GEF) has delivered 3 new A320 airplanes to AirPhil Express (PHP).

September 2012: (PAL) Express (based at Manila Ninoy Aquino International airport (MNL)) will be the new brand to be adopted by Philippine Airlines (PAL) owned low-cost carrier (LCC) airphilexpress (PHP) with an exact date for the re-branding yet to be announced. The "PAL Express" brand had previously been used by (PAL) for its regional operations with Dash 8-300s and Dash 8-400s before the airplanes and routes were transferred to (PHP) in March 2010.

October 2012: Philippine Airlines (PAL) and its low-cost carrier (LCC) airphilexpress (PHP) have announced a major restructuring of their domestic operations from Manila with each carrier focusing on some routes instead of the 2 carriers competing head to head in addition to competition from other (LCC) AirAsia Philippines, Cebu Pacific Air (CEB), South East Asian Airlines (SEAIR) (SRQ) and Zest Air (RIT). As of the (IATA) winter timetable starting October 28, (PAL) will exclusively operate from Manila to Bacolod (BCD), (CEB), Davao Francisco Bangoy International (DVO), General Santos Buayan (GES), Iloilo International (ILO), Laoag International (LAO), Tagbilaran (TAG) while (PHP) will exclusively operate to Butuan (BXU), Cagayan de Oro Lumbia (CGY), Cotabato (CBO), Dipolog (DPL), Dumaguete (DGT), Puerto Princesa International (PPS) and Zamboanga International (ZAM). There are some other domestic routes previously served by both carriers or one of the 2 airlines unaffected by these changes.

November 2012: airphilexpress (PHP) is expected to receive some of the A330-300s recently ordered by parent, Philippine Airlines (PAL) allowing the carrier group to compete better with low-cost carrier (LCC)s Cebu Pacific Air (CEB) and Zest Air (RIT), which both also have long-haul ambitions. The A330-300s allocated to (PHP) will be operated in a single class configuration targeting the labor travel market between the Philippines and the Middle East from as early as next year.

January 2013: airphilexpress ((IATA) Code: 2P; Manila Ninoy Aquino International airport (MNL)) (PHP) has been assigned 5 A330-300s that will be delivered to Philippine Airlines (PAL) in 2013 confirming earlier reports that the low-cost carrier (LCC) subsidiary of (PAL) will launch long-haul services next year. airphilexpress (PHP) is expected to be re-branded as (PAL) Express (Manila Ninoy Aquino International (MNL)) over the course of next year. It plans to mainly use the A330-300s on routes to the Middle East initially.

March 2013: (PAL) Express (PHP), formerly known as Airphil Express, plans to launch 2 new services in the coming months. It will operate 3x-weekly on the Zamboanga - Sandakan and Manila - Basco routes, starting April 22 and May 1, respectively, according to its network timetable.

(PAL) Express (PHP) did not specify the airplane type it will use on the 2 services. (PAL) Express was re-branded from Airphil Express on March 15, building on the alliance it has with Philippine Airlines (PAL). The re-branding will improve and align its service standards and product offerings with the country's flag carrier, said (PAL).

Basco is located in the northern province of Batanes, while Sandakan is the 2nd largest city in the eastern Malaysian state of Sabah.

May 2013: (PAL) Express (PHP) inaugurated flights on the 700 km domestic route from the Philippine capital, Manila (MNL), to Basco (BSO), located in the Batanes Islands. Beginning on May 1, (PHP) operates 3x-weekly flights on the route using Dash 8-Q400s.

November 2013: Philippine Airlines (PAL)’s regional low-cost subsidiary, (PAL) Express (PHP) has launched long-haul operations with flights between Manila and Dubai. The 5x-weekly flights will be operated using (PHP)’s new A330-300 airplanes.

(PAL) President Ramon Ang said, “Our (PHP) flights to and from Dubai will give our countrymen a direct, convenient link to their homeland, and allow them to experience the trademark Filipino service (PAL) is known for.”

Philippine Airlines (PAL) last month added Abu Dhabi to its route network, operating 5 flights a week to the United Arab Emirates (UAE) capital. Between them, (PAL) and (PHP) now operate 10x-weekly to the (UAE)’s 2 main hubs. Some 450,000 Filipino expatriates live and work in Dubai and make up the natural base market there for (PHP).

March 2015: Philippine Airlines (PAL) on March 20th introduced service on the 269 km route from Manila (MNL) to Tablas (TBH). Tablas is the largest of the islands that comprise the province of Romblon in the Philippines. The route will be served 3x-weekly with Dash 8-300s operated by PAL Express (PHP). Flights will operate on Wednesdays, Fridays and Sundays and face no competition.

August 2015: (PAL) Express ((IATA) Code: 2P, based at Manila) (PHP) is looking to replace its existing fleets of Dash 8-300s and Dash 8-400s with newer models of the same type.

Jaime Bautista the President & Chief Operating Officer (COO) of the airline's parent firm, (PAL) Holdings Inc, told "Reuters" in an interview that (PAL) Express is looking to either lease or acquire 9 of the Bombardier ((ICAO) Code: (BBA), based at Montréal Trudeau) (BMB) turboprops.

According to the ch-aviation aircraft database, (PAL) Express (PHP) operates 4 Dash 8-Q300s averaging 9.2 years of age and 5 Dash 8-Q400s, which average 13.7 years of age. (PHP) also operates 13 A320-200s and 1 A330-300.



Note: PAL EXPRESS (PHP) is listed on the latest (EU) blacklist released 03.04.2012 of airlines whose operations are subject to a ban within the (EU)*. *Airlines listed in Annex A could be permitted to exercise traffic rights by using wet-leased airplanes of an air carrier which is not subject to an operating ban, provided that the relevant safety standards are complied with.
