PAL assures MassKara
of flights amid spin off


A Philippine Airlines official yesterday explained that PAL’s spin-off or outsourcing of its non-core businesses set to take effect on October 1 is necessary to ensure PAL’s survival and enhance its efficiency and competitiveness.

Airlines around the world have already outsourced their non-core business units as a result of the global financial crisis, PAL is among the last to implement such measure, Glenn Vallecera, PAL assistant vice president for Visayas sales and services, said.

PAL is temporarily reducing the number of its flights during the spin off transition, including 50 percent of those flying to the Bacolod-Silay Airport, except during the peak dates of Bacolod’s MassKara Festival in October, he said.moremoremore
