Philippine Airlines (PAL) is known to be the leading international airline carrier in the Philippines. PAL also have their own domestic budget airline carrier, PAL Express, which flies to different local destinations. PAL is now expanding their domestic flights by having a code-sharing agreement with PAL Express. A code-sharing agreement is an agreement between two or more airlines, which have more destinations and schedules to choose from for the passengers’ convenience. Through this agreement, passengers may purchase a ticket under PAL but another airline carrier, which PAL has an agreement with, will carry their flight.

This move of PAL is for offering extra flights in order to accommodate more passengers in their domestic flights. This way, they will be able to have a stronger competition against Cebu Pacific, which is the leading domestic airline carrier in the Philippines. This could also be an advantage for PAL since they will soon be offering direct flights to 5 cities in Europe. They can focus on having more flights for domestic places through PAL Express and they can focus on more international flights through their other partner airline carriers.
