SkyJet Airlines started commercial flights into Basco, Batanes on December 14, 2012, the long-awaited event for the province that has been virtually isolated in the past from mainland Luzon because of lack of air transport.
SkyJet Airlines, owned by Magnum Air Inc., started flying the Manila into Basco and Basco into Manila routes in 2012 following the issuance of the Air Operator’s Certificate by the Civil Aviation Authority of the Philippines. Flights to Basco and back to Manila started several times a week: Mondays, Wednesdays, and Fridays flying from Terminal 4 of the Manila Domestic Airport.
Dr. Joel Mendoza, CEO of Magnum Air Inc., said SkyJet was envisioned to be a benchmark in the aviation industry in terms of safety standards, customer care, and service. By serving niche destinations, regardless of passenger traffic, “we endeavor to contribute to the country’s economy by boosting local tourism while advocating for the preservation of natural resources and cultural heritage, like that of Batanes, a province declared by the government as a protected area during the time of former Governor Telesforo Castillejos and now a candida for the elite National Cultural Heritage of the Philippines.
In these destinations, Skyjet added a 76 seater 100 jet airplane with four engines for added security and faster flights. The British jet plane has sizable cargo capacities to accommodate passengers extra luggage like surf-board, scuba gears along with other water sporting fittings for vacation, and two flight attendants to serve passengers’ demands like snacks and beverages.
