PH start-up cargo airline to lease Airbus A321P2F planes


Philippine start-up cargo airline, Aero Bleu Airways, has announced a significant step in its expansion by signing a letter of intent (LOI) to lease two Airbus A321P2F (passenger-to-freighter) aircraft.

The deal, struck with Singaporean multinational technology and engineering group ST Engineering, will bolster Aero Bleu’s capabilities and offer a more sustainable approach to regional air cargo.

Aero Bleu Airways’ acquisition of these freighter jets marks a move towards lower carbon emissions and enhanced regional cargo connectivity, according to ST Engineering.

The lease also positions Aero Bleu Airways as the first airline in the Philippines to operate the Airbus A321P2F, offering a unique advantage in a market traditionally dominated by Boeing 737 freighters.

Founded in 2021, Aero Bleu Airways envisions becoming a global cargo airline with its main hub at Ninoy Aquino International Airport in Manila.

The company’s website outlines an initial focus on domestic cargo routes connecting Manila to Cagayan de Oro, Cebu, Davao, and General Santos City.

Aero Bleu Airways holds ambitious plans for international expansion, aiming to establish cargo routes from Manila to destinations across Asia, Middle East, Australia, Africa, and North America.
