菲律宾航空公司(PAL)与政府进行债务重组,计划向法院寻求债权人保护

新华社马尼拉11月25日电菲律宾财政部长Carlos Dominguez 25日表示,为应对新冠肺炎疫情,菲律宾航空公司(PAL)与政府进行债务重组,计划向法院寻求债权人保护。


多明格斯说,PAL最近向菲律宾政府通报了其计划。PAL部分由日本ANA控股公司所有。然而,财政司司长并没有提供PAL需要何种政府援助的细节。


该友人尚未对该计划发表评论。


上个月,PAL宣布计划在其7,000多名员工中裁员35%,“作为一项更大的重组和复苏计划的一部分”,以减少疫情造成的损失。


PAL的上市运营商报告称,截至9月底,其租赁和长期债务达到了1980亿比索(约合41.1亿美元)。


PAL还暂停了主要用于购买新飞机的资本支出。它还安排了少量的劳动力,降低了管理层的工资和非必要的开支。


菲律宾于3月中旬对主要岛屿吕宋岛实施了封锁,以遏制冠状病毒的传播。


封锁迫使当地机场关闭,导致所有入境和出境航班暂停,除了国际和国内的清道夫航班,这些航班用于将外国人遣返菲律宾,并从国外接回滞留的菲律宾人。

 

MANILA, Nov. 25 (Xinhua) -- The Philippine Airlines (PAL) plans to seek court protection from creditors as it pursues debt restructuring with the government to survive the impact of the COVID-19 pandemic, Philippine Finance Secretary Carlos Dominguez said on Wednesday.

Dominguez said the PAL, partly owned by Japan's ANA Holdings Inc, informed the Philippine government of its plans recently. However, the finance secretary did not provide details as to what kind of government assistance PAL needs.

The PAL has not commented on the plan.

Last month, the PAL announced its plans to cut up to 35 percent of its total more than 7,000 workers "as part of a larger restructuring and recovery plan" to curtail losses brought about by the pandemic.

The listed operator of the PAL reported 198 billion pesos (roughly 4.11 billion U.S. dollars) in lease and long-term debts by end-September.

The PAL also suspended capital expenditures, which are mainly for the acquisition of new aircraft. It also put in place a skeletal workforce and reduced management salaries and non-essential expenses.

The Philippines imposed in mid-March a lockdown on the main island of Luzon to stem the spread of the coronavirus.

The lockdown forced local airport closures leading to the suspensions of all incoming and outgoing flights, except for international and domestic sweeper flights to repatriate foreigners out of the Philippines and to bring in stranded Filipinos from abroad.
