Sunlight Air unveils future destinations

Aviation Updates Philippines – The newest competitor in the Philippine aviation sector, Sunlight Express Airways, has publicly announced its first domestic routes when it launches chartered operations soon.

Sunlight Air said it plans to fly from their Manila and Clark hubs to both Busuanga and Puerto Princesa. Back in February, the new airline exclusively revealed to AUP about their intentions to offer chartered flights to these destinations.

"Our main purpose is to meet the increasing demand of the Philippine tourism industry with targeted destinations, notably Busuanga and Puerto Princesa Palawan," the airline said.

Sunlight Air already has three owned ATR 72-500 aircraft. The first one, RP-C6638, arrived in the Philippines in November last year, the second one, RP-C6683, in January this year, and the third one, RP-C6386, in March.

These aircraft are fitted with 70 seats in an all-economy class configuration across the cabin.

In October 2019, Sunlight Express Airways Corp. arranged with the Civil Aeronautics Board for the issuance of a Certificate of Public Convenience and Necessity (CPCN). This was a step further in clearing the airline for take-off.
