PAL cargo back on track

FOLLOWING almost two weeks of disruption Philippine Airlines (PAL) has resumed cargo services operating out of Ninoy Aquino International Airport Terminal 2 in Manila.
PAL cargo operations were suspended on 27 September when the ground crew union staged protests after PAL’s plans to implement a wide-ranging corporate restructuring programme involved the outsourcing, among others, of PAL Cargo.
“We’re now accepting cargo bookings for all international flights, including wide-body domestic flights that operate out of Terminal 2,” PAL president Jaime Bautista said. “It’s another concrete sign that PAL has turned the corner towards normalising our operations after the transition phase of our outsourcing programme.”
PAL airlifted 139,284 metric tonnes of cargo last fiscal year (2010/2011), a nine per cent increase over the previous financial year.
