PAL Express (short for Philippine Airlines Express), formerly Air Philippines, is the low-cost regional airline brand of sister airline Philippine Airlines. After operating as PAL Express for a while, the airline transformed again the brand into Airphil Express. However, in March 2013, the company 's CEO announced its re-branding into PAL Express. As a brand of Philippine Airlines, PAL Express will be operating as a full service carrier with low-cost management.[1]

History[edit]

On 10 April 2008, Philippine Airlines announced the order for aircraft that will form the PAL Express fleet. It will consist of aircraft from the Bombardier Q family, three from the Q300 series and six from the Q400 series, presently manufactured by Bombardier Aerospace and currently valued at $150 million.[2] PAL announced on April 13 that the new fleet will be based mainly in Cebu City to serve regional routes, while flights from Manila will also be launched.[3]
PAL Express was formally unveiled on 14 April 2008. PAL Express will primarily fly intra-regional routes in the Visayas and Mindanao from its Cebu hub, as well as secondary routes to smaller airports in island provinces that are not able to accommodate PAL’s regular jet aircraft. Service will ramp up dramatically on 19 May when Cebu hub operations commence with flights between Cebu City and five points in the Visayas and Mindanao.[4]
On 5 May 2008, PAL Express began operations by launching flights to Malay.[5] The airline on the same day announced it will serve 22 inter-island routes, including some provincial points currently without air service.[6] Flights out of Cebu City commenced on 19 May.
On 1 July 2009, PAL Express flights began earning Mabuhay Miles. Since 27 October 2009, all PAL Express flights were being operated by Air Philippines. On 28 March 2010, PAL Express ceased operations and transferred all operations to sister airline, Airphil Express.
On March 15, 2013, Airphil Express re-branded itself as PAL Express using the familiar “sunriser” PAL livery and logo on its tail and fuselage.[1]
Incidents and Accidents[edit]

On August 11, 2008, a PAL Express Bombardier DHC-8 Q400 aircraft operating as flight PR29 with 75 passengers and 3 crew, had safely landed on runway 04 at Catarman Airport when the airplane 's nosewheel struck a soft spot in the runway 's surface during taxi, the airline reported. No injuries were reported.[8]
On November 15, 2008, Another Bombardier DHC-8 Q400, with flight number PR272, made an emergency landing at its destination, Davao International Airport, from Zamboanga International Airport due to a problem with the plane 's left landing gear. No one onboard got injured and the aircraft landed safely.
