Philippine Airlines said it will offer a new cargo service, targeting small and medium enterprises as part of its strategy to boost its revenues in the coming years.
“We continue to strengthen our cargo business, which helped keep us afloat during the pandemic. We will soon roll out a new feature called Port-to-Door Service, where cargo customers can have their shipments delivered to them, hassle free,” said PAL president and chief operating officer Capt. Stanley Ng.
“We are proud of this innovation, because it will be very useful for SMEs. This will make shipment and last mile delivery seamless and convenient,” he said.
Data from the Civil Aeronautics Board showed that PAL carried 22.96 million kilograms of domestic cargo and 55.46 million kg. of international cargo last year.
PAL director Lucio Tan III said the airline would also open a new Mabuhay Lounge later this year for international passengers at Terminal 1. “The Lounge will also have a younger, trendier vibe that echoes our new look,” Tan said. Darwin G. Amojelar
