Philippine Airlines has signed a Letter of Intent (LOI) with Bombardier Commercial Aircraft to acquire up to 12 Q400 turboprops.
“For close to a decade, the Bombardier Q Series family of aircraft has been instrumental in evolving our domestic network operations,” said Jaime Bautista, president and chief operating officer, Philippine Airlines. “We are proud that our continued fleet growth now makes us the first airline to launch service with the two-class, 86-seat Q400 aircraft. As we strive to become a 5-star-rated airline, the Q400 aircraft, featuring a modern and innovative configuration, will be instrumental in providing our travellers with a world-class, inflight passenger experience.”
“We look forward to working with Philippine Airlines to reach a firm purchase agreement for Q400 aircraft,” said Fred Cromer, president, Bombardier Commercial Aircraft.
