The country’s flag carrier, Philippine Airlines (PAL), was hailed as one of the top 50 airlines in the world, according to the annual Skytrax World Airline Awards in London.

PAL ranked 49th out of 335 airlines based on surveys of more than 20 million travelers. Aside from its top 50 spot, PAL was also named as the second most improved carrier after it continously rises from its 83rd rank in 2016 and 67th rank in 2017.

Speaking about the wonderful news, PAL President Jaime Bautista was quoted by Philippine Lifestyle News as saying, “I am overwhelmed with pride and joy. This latest win shows how far we have come in working to transform our airline, and this victory is especially sweet because it reflects the votes of our beloved customers.”

On July 18, PAL launched its two new Airbus jets to reclaim its status as one of the world’s best airline companies.

PAL President Jaime Bautista said the 295-seater A350 will fly PAL’s New York and London routes while the 168-seater A321neo will fly the recently-launched Brisbane and Sapporo routes.

Aside from the flag carrier, PAL Express, another airline operating under the ownership of Philippine Airlines, also ranked 99th in the said list.

Singapore Airlines took the top spot, while Dubai’s flagship airline, Emirates, remains as the top UAE-based airline company and was hailed as one of the best airlines in the world after ranking 4th in the list.
