Philippine Airlines’ flag carrier PAL has been recognised as one of the top 10 airlines with the highest safety credentials for travel during COVID-19.
The flag carrier was awarded a safe travel score of 4.2 out of 5.0 by Safe Travel Barometer, which meant it tied with China Airlines, Hawaiian Airlines, AirAsia Malaysia and UAE’s Emirates.
The rating includes COVID-19-related hygiene and safety measures announced by airlines for travellers and its crew.
PAL President and Chief Operating Officer Gilbert Santa Maria said: "We are grateful for the unexpected recognition, and honoured to be recognised for doing the right thing. PAL shall continue to maintain the highest standards of safety and the protection of the health of our colleagues and all the passengers in our care."
