Jet- Denied Manila

The Philippines has denied the applications  for the issuance of Foreign Air Carrier’s Permit (FACP) of Jet Airways to fly to Manila, report local papers. The reason given is the limited capacity of the Ninoy Aquino International Airport (NAIA). Oman Air's request, has also been rejected, we hear.
China's Spring Airlines is said to be wanting to fly too, to Manila.
Most airports in the country are not night rated and are limited to daytime operations in many airports,” the report quoted one of the sources. “Most of the domestic flights are connecting to Manila.”
The country has granted around 39 permits to international airlines by end 2012.


  1. Neelam, please check.

    The Executive Director of the Civil Aeronautics Board of the Philippines has been quoted in an article

    "Arcilla said the agency is already processing the FACP of Oman Air while Jet Airways of India was granted an FACP valid until 2016 last 2011."

  2. As I said in my story this was quoted by a local publication. Jet hasn't as yet denied it. Thanks for your comment. We'll keep an eye.

  3. so what they are waiting for? Let Jet Airways allow to fly nah,, we are very very excited to see the wings of JET AIRWAYS IN MANILA
