Friday took delivery of its second A330-300 long-range plane manufactured by France-based Airbus S.A.S. amid expectations of faster growth—and competition—in the air travel sector coming out of emerging markets, led by Asia Pacific, officials of PAL and Airbus said.

The 414-seat A330-300, the first of as many as 20 planes within this model ordered by PAL as part of a $9.5-billion, 65-plane refleeting strategy through 2019, would serve the carrier’s Manila-Abu Dhabi route on Oct 1. This will also mark the airline’s return to the Middle East, one of the biggest employers of Filipino workers overseas.
