About Philippine Airlines

Philippine Airlines was founded in 1935 under the name Philippine Aerial Taxi, and took on its current name in 1941. It is the Philippine's national flag carrier and is headquartered in Pasay City in the Philippines. Its primary hub is at Ninoy Aquino International Airport with a secondary hub located at Mactan Cebu International Airport. It also has a focus city at Kaino International Airport. It has a convoy of nearly 70 airplanes, with the majority of the fleet made up of Airbus A321s.

It currently serves more than 40 destinations spread across Asia, Oceania, the Middle East, Europe and North America. Some popular routes include Philippine Airlines flights to Brisbane, Toronto, Shanghai and Paris. It has not yet joined any of the three main airline alliances, however in response to this, it has negotiated codeshare arrangements with several other carriers, such as Air Macau, Turkish Airlines, China Airlines and Malaysia Airlines to help it expand its areas of service.
