After winning $500m investment from San Miguel Corp, Philippine Airlines (PAL) has confirmed that is in talks to invest in a foreign carrier to help its expansion goals.

PAL’s international expansion aim depends on the country improving its safety record as it is currently blacklisted by the European Union and has a Category 2 rating from the US Federal Aviation Administration.
