Flag carrier Philippine Airlines is looking to acquire three more Airbus A350-1000 wide-body jets, driven by a post-pandemic growth in the aviation sector, its president said on Tuesday.

The current market condition is encouraging for Philippine Airlines to get another three aircraft, and the company will decide later this year, Philippine Airlines President Stanley Ng told a press conference. The airline acquired nine of the same aircraft in June 2023.
