Spirit of Manila Airlines gets first aircraft.

Low cost carrier, Spirit of Manila Airlines, has acquired it’s first aircraft, a Boeing 737-300 series which it has leased from Spirit leasing Corp. The 150 seater is likely to see operation on the DMIA Clark Freeport Zone to either Macau or Taipei.
Last November Spirit of manila gained approval to operate from DMIA to Taiwan, Macau plus Kuwait, Bahrain and Dubai in the Middle East. The airline has confirmed it is looking for larger aircraft to serve the Middle East airports but declined to give further details. It is also keen to build a network of regional and International services from Clark to key Asian and Mid Eastern destinations.
Currently no other Philippine airline operates to the Middle east after national carrier Philippine Airlines cancelled all flights to the region because it did not consider it a money making proposition.
We wish Spirit of Manila every success and we will monitor their progress with great interest.
