Philippine Airlines is proud to continue
flying during our restructuring process
and looks forward to a stronger future.
On September 03, Philippine Airlines announced the voluntary decision to undergo financial restructuring under the U.S. Chapter 11 process. This step is part of a set of major agreements PAL has reached with substantially all of our stakeholders, and with one objective: to build a stronger Philippine Airlines so that we can serve our customers better and continue our mission as a full-service airline and flag carrier of the Philippines.
Chapter 11 is a globally recognized U.S. legal process that many airlines have used to reinvent themselves into more successful companies. The restructuring will enable PAL to emerge with fresh capital, lower debt and a sturdier financial foundation for the future.
We will continue to fly and to serve our customers throughout this process: it is business as usual for us. PAL continues to increase domestic and international flights as travel demand recovers with the easing of travel restrictions, and we will roll out new products and services that help make flying safer and more convenient.
Our highest priority is the safety and health of our passengers, our employees, and the communities we serve. Nothing about that will change as we undergo restructuring.
After 80 years of flying the Philippine flag, we recognize that our nation will look up to PAL to sustain the links and connections that unite our island country and bring life to our communities and economy. We pledge to work harder to earn your continuing support, to deliver buong pusong alaga (whole-hearted care) and provide a beacon of hope to Filipinos and travelers from all over the world.
Thank you for your support for PAL’s recovery and renewal.

PAL announced that the United States Chapter 11 court approved all “First Day” motions on an interim or final basis for PAL’s voluntary restructuring following petitions filed on September 3, 2021. These approvals mark an important step forward in PAL’s recovery plan, which will reduce the Company’s debt by US$2.0 Billion and help the Company recover from the impact of the global pandemic.
