Air Charter

Fly from door to door or anywhere

Air Charter and Air Taxi in the Philippines

Air Charter means flying non-stop and arrive much nearer to the final destination than with an airline. The Philippines have over a hundred community airports and airstrips, where only a small chartered plane can land. On a sightseeing tour you may discover the breathtaking beauty of our 7,107 islands from the air!

Have 360 degrees view of the tropical paradise below and fly to the beach of your dreams. Renting an aircraft is not so expensive in the Philippines. You cut the layover expenses and win at least one full day at your destination. Its really a funny way to travel and to discover.

Important: For safety reasons, we strongly recommend to fly only with companies that have a valid Air Operator's Certificate (AOC). These companies are marked in this page by the "CERTIFIED" stamp. The other companies may also be safe but have not yet sent a copy of their AOC. Invitations to submit their AOC are pending.

    Important remark

    There are some more air charter companies in the Philippines. We do not list them for two reasons.

    Reason 1:
    The status of the company is not clear. We do not know whether they are still operational or not.

    Reason 2:
    Some companies are simply not safe. If a company counts 2 major accidents with 6 fatalities in one year, we cannot recommend them anymore.

     

    All air charter companies listed on this page had no accidents in the past. Their pilots do have the needed licences, are fully certified and do have enough hours in the air. For company AOC please see here. Their aircraft are well maintained. Some of the planes might be antique, but if they are maintained with knowledge, experience and love, they still have full airworthiness.


    This fatal crash happened 2012 a few hundred meters from our office. Reason: Pilot error! Remark: The pilot flying was a trainee!

    So please, be careful.
