Philippine Airlines first took to the skies on March 15, 1941 using a five-seater Beech model 18 aircraft amid the specter of global war. That flight earned for PAL the distinction of being Asia's first airline.

Since then, PAL etched numerous firsts in Philippine commercial aviation.

PAL is the only full-service Philippine air carrier offering a higher level of inflight and on-ground service, drawing from its long experience in airline operations for the past seven decades.

Passengers may choose to fly on Business Class, Premium Economy (selected aircraft), or Economy Class, and would enjoy generous baggage allowance, spacious legroom, inflight wireless connectivity, sumptuous inflight dishes, quality products and services, a popular frequent flyer program (Mabuhay Miles) and many more.

PAL operates an extensive network of flights out of its four (4) hub airports: Manila (Ninoy Aquino), Cebu (Mactan), Clark and Davao. Today, PAL flies to 42 international and 33 domestic destinations using 85 aircraft, one of the youngest fleets in the industry with an average age of just five years.

PAL's international route network extends as far in the east to New York and in the west to London, covering two-thirds of the globe. PAL is the first Philippine-based carrier certified safe by the International Air Transport Association (IATA), through its IATA Operational Safety Audit (IOSA) Program.

At its diamond anniversary in 2016, PAL announced a new corporate vision - to be a five-star airline by 2020. In support of this goal, a new brand identity was unveiled, embodying warm and caring service that can only come from the Heart of the Filipino. This new branding projects PAL as the showcase of the best of the Philippines and of the Filipino.

In February 2018, PAL was certified a 4-Star airline by Skytrax, the international air transport rating organisation. PAL joins the list of 40 world-class airlines around the globe also rated 4-Star. PAL is the first and only airline in the Philippines with a 4-Star Rating.

PAL is stepping up efforts to become a 5-Star airline by expanding its fleet and route network and continuously innovating its products and services.
