PAL Express expects two more Airbus A321s to be delivered within the year.

The new aircraft will support the expansion of PAL Express.

Given congestion at the country’s main international gateway, the Ninoy Aquino International Airport, PAL Express is looking at areas outside of Manila to expand its operations.

PAL Express president Bonifacio Sam earlier said the carrier is looking at Davao, Puerto Princesa and Bacolod as potential hubs where it could offer more flights.
