I was wondering what PR was going to do with the allowances from the scrapped flights to LAS.

it will be transferred to either LAX, SFO, or to the new flight to YYZ. So far, the decision has been to transfer the allocations to YYZ, but I'm surprised about flight allocations transferred (or added) to LAX.

All right, here they are:

- PAL drops flights to Vegas, eyes expansion in Toronto

- Philippine Airline Destinations: Los Angeles (note text that says "more flights may be added depending on market requirement)

The article does not mention any allocation transfer of LAS to as you put it "it will be transferred to either LAX, SFO, or to the new flight to YYZ."

The same article points out that to expand to YYZ, PR will use its YVR entitlement (which makes sense since YXX is a Canadian Territory while LAS is an American territory).

It also points out that PR will still maintain a presence in LAS via a codeshare.

So again, please point out any other sources you may have indicating that (it was also my suspicion but have not seen one publicly confirming this) that LAS allocation is transferred to LAX.

And PAL is also looking at a backdoor into Europe.

Philippine Airlines hopes to set foot in Europe in 2013

"Phillippine Airlines is officially looking at serving Istanbul in 2013 but also Kuwait and Phnom Penh."

"thrice weekly services on the Manila-Istanbul route from 5 August 2013."


Turkey is of half European and half Asian but not part of the European Union therefor it doesn't fall under the EU legislation that has currently banned PAL to fly in the EU.

I have seen such reports of it already from the local papers in my country, and hopefully, once PAL gets into Istanbul, it will open more doors later into negotiating to return to Europe, contingent of compliance with EU Aviation regulations. I mean, the Philippines has been languishing with FAA Category 2 since 2008 and the EU Blacklist since 2010... When will it ever recover?

AirAsia opens doors to Taipei

Quote:
TAIPEI—AirAsia is opening more doors for overseas Filipino workers as well as tourists this holiday season by offering low cost flights to Singapore and Taiwan from Clark, Pampanga.

According to Maan Hontiveros, AirAsia CEO in the Philippines, the move is not only envisioned to provide low fare air travel to OFWs but also drive tourist traffic to the Philippines.

A joint venture between Filipino investors Hontiveros, Antonio Cojuangco and Michael Romero, and Malaysia’s AirAsia International Ltd., AirAsia in the Philippines now provides four weekly flights to Taipei and daily flights to Singapore. The airline is flying brand new Airbus A320s.

Latest data culled from the Philippine Embassy pegged the number of Filipinos working in Singapore at 177,600, while some 100,000 work in Taiwan.

“Taipei is a very important route for us right now. We are the only airline flying this route right now,” says Hontiveros.

I hope that route will stay as it is until it can find demand to upgrade it to daily.

More news on the scrapping of the gross Philippine billings tax (GPBT) and the common carriers’ tax (CCT)...

Quote:

MANILA, Philippines - With the law abolishing the gross Philippine billings tax (GPBT) and the common carriers’ tax (CCT) nearing enactment, at least seven foreign airlines have signified intention to fly into the country by early next year, travel industry groups revealed.

Aileen Clemente, interim president of the Federation of Tourism Industries of the Philippines (FTIP), said those that are keen on designating flights to Manila by the first quarter of 2013 are Cathay Pacific, Delta Airlines, Etihad, KLM, Kuwait Airlines, Lufthansa/Swiss Airlines, Qatar Airlines and Singapore Airlines.

And once the GPBT and CCT have been removed, Clemente said these carriers would surely increase the frequency of their flights to the Philippines by the middle of the year.

“It will signal to the world that we are getting our act together and that all the components that will boost Philippine tourism are being addressed,” Clemente said.

John Paul Cabalza, Philippine Travel Agencies Association president, said the group supported the calls of various local and foreign associations, including the Board of Airline Representatives (BAR), to fix the onerous taxation on airlines the last two years after foreign airlines withdrew from the country one after another.

“We have seen the dwindling number of seats available to the Philippines because of the GPBT and CCT and this is not good for us since the different parts of the country are largely only reachable by air,” Cabalza said.

Clemente added that more international airlines flying into the country means higher tourism numbers for the country.

The Senate has already voted for the passage of a Malacaρang-backed bill conditionally waiving P2.50 billion in combined revenues from the GPBT and CCT; the House of Representatives has long passed its own version of the bill.

The two houses of Congress will meet in a bicameral committee to reconcile the differences of their bills and pass the final version of the law.


With these positive developments on the policy front, Cabalza said all the tourism-related subsectors should now start preparing for the entry of more foreign tourists to the country.

“We have to find the right balance in terms of supply of hotels, seats, pricing, and airport capacity. More training must also be provided to travel agencies and tour operators. Our tour guides should also become multilingual,” Cabalza said.

According to data presented at the Senate hearings, about 3.5 million tourists are expected to visit the country this year, higher by 9.18 percent compared to last year. The government’s target is to attract 10 million tourists by 2016.

To meet the target, 15 million seats should be made available.

Currently, the Philippines only has 6 million seats available with about 369 flights weekly, second lowest in Asia and just ahead of Cambodia.

One factor that is going against the Philippines is that it is the only country levying taxes on airlines.

GPBT would be replaced by 20 million seats by 2016 and lower airfares by at least 8 percent.

There is also a projected strong growth in tourist arrivals from 5.54 million in 2013, 6.75 million in 2014, 8.21 million in 2015 and 10 million in 2016.

Expected jobs to be created are currently being seen at 6 million, with revenues to be generated estimated to reach P455 billion by 2016.

See, the rewards are coming our way now thanks to the repeal of the GPBT and CCT. Finally, our country is on its way to making (or exceeding) the 10-million-visitor mark by 2016 as envisioned by PNoy, and it would mean added revenue for needed airport projects. Bravo!

Flew MNL HKG this morning on PR's newest 77W, RP-C7776. Looking at the schedule, after it returns to MNL, it could well be on its way to Toronto at 15:00.

And that's the same aircraft used on its maiden flight from Manila to Toronto.

All right, here's something that might excite you: Cebu Pacific to launch its first long-haul flight to Dubai from October 2013! Cebu Pacific will use its Airbus A330-300, configured in an all-economy seating (perhaps around 400 passengers), for its daily Manila-Dubai service starting 7 October 2013. Reservations for this flight has started today, 17 January 2013. Schedule:

5J7944 MNL1640 – 2140DXB 333 D
5J7945 DXB2310 – 1140+1MNL 333 D

I know, right? That somehow reminds me of Thomas Cook or AirAsiaX (or even rouge for that matter) that use a similar format of all-Y cabin on their aircraft. And being a daily flight, it'd mean hundreds of passengers will queue up just to buy a ticket, and I'll guarantee that there will always be standby passengers for this flight.
