Airphil gets new Airbus

/ 10:01 PM August 23, 2011

Airphil Express recently got itself a new 180-seater Airbus A320, increasing its fleet of this aircraft to seven.

The new Airbus A320 recently taxied into the Ninoy Aquino International airport from Toulouse, France, with the airline’s own pilots in command.

The additional aircraft will enable the airline to bring more customers to more destinations in a shorter time at an affordable price, said Alfredo Herrera, AirPhil SVP for marketing and sales.


“We aim to play a dominant role in the industry by bringing more tourists around the country while beefing up our presence in the region,” Herrera said.

Airphil Express has mapped out a $250-million expansion plan and is scheduled to purchase two more A320 units later in the year.

Apart from the seven Airbus A320, AirPhil Express also has three Q300s and five Q400.
