Magnum Air (Skyjet) Inc. owner and chief executive officer Dr. Joel Mendoza said Skyjet will initially fly to four destinations, namely Basco in Batanes, Virac in Catanduanes, Catarman in Northern Samar, and Surigao.

These flights though are still tentative, what is certain is the airline’s positioning as a leisure carrier, said Roel Sibayan, the airline’s marketing director.

Skyjet will utilize its 94-seater British Aerospace 146 series 200 for its commercial operation.

Aeroflite had operated from September 2005 to August 2011. Being renamed to Skyjet, it offered chartered flights from March to June this year. The Civil Aeronautics Board (CAB) recently granted the airline a temporary operating permit for schedule domestic passenger and cargo services.

To date, only Cebu Pacific Airlines is operating in the province after Zest Airways pulled out.
