PAL expands technology upgrades with Ramco’s Aviation Suite


Philippine Airlines, Inc. (PAL), the flag carrier of the Philippines, has signed an agreement with Ramco Systems to implement the company’s Aviation Suite V5.9.

The cloud-based platform is expected to replace legacy systems, providing PAL with end-to-end optimization of maintenance and engineering business processes.

The software is set to support regulatory compliance and offer sustainable digital transformation through paperless operations. This move is in line with PAL’s Accelerated Initiatives for Recoveries and Full Optimization through Innovation and Leadership (AIRFOIL) program, which prioritizes technological upgrades and innovation.

Captain Stanley Ng, PAL’s president and chief operating officer, said that the upgrade will give the airline a “technological edge” and help it serve its customers better with a robust digital infrastructure. P.R. Venketrama Raja, the chairman of Ramco Systems, said that the addition of PAL to its client list is a testament to the company’s status as a leading software provider in the airlines segment.

Philippine Airlines has been strengthening its network as global air travel continues to recover. The company offers nonstop flights linking the Philippines with the US mainland, Canada, and Hawaii, as well as the largest network of flights on multiple routes to Japan, Australia, and countries in the Middle East. 

PAL is set to launch a direct flight between Manila and Perth, Australia in March 2023, as well as reopen flights to mainland Chinese destinations.

Ramco Aviation Suite is already used by over 24,000 users and manages 4,000 aircraft globally. The cloud-based system is trusted by top airlines, third-party MROs, large heli-operators, leading defense organizations, and major urban air mobility companies around the world.
