Philippines Airlines’ cargo business resumed last weekend after one of the country’s largest cargo carriers completed the outsourcing of its operations.

Pal Cargo’s services had been suspended since the PAL Employees Association began a strike on September 27, following the carrier’s announcement to outsource about 2,600 jobs.

“We’re now accepting cargo bookings for all international flights including wide-body domestic flights that operate out of (Ninoy Aquino International Airport) Terminal 2,” said airline president Jaime Bautista,

In the last fiscal year, the carrier uplifted 139,284 tons, a 9 percent year-over-year gain.
