Sunlight Air is the newest player in the Philippine aviation and charter industry. It launches with a bold dedication to revolutionize air travel by providing a new concept of “aviation service” and a seamless travel experience to domestic travelers at a competitive price.
The airline was founded on 22 July 2019 with three ATR 72-500 aircraft in its fleet. It aimed to strengthen domestic tourism with routes that seamlessly connect Philippine destinations, especially Palawan, Siargao, Boracay, Cebu and those that are still underserved by the industry.
The airline’s branding serves as the core of its service. With its tagline “Bringing Warmth to the Skies,” Sunlight Air dedicates itself to consistently bringing comfort and warmth to every passenger’s air travel by manifesting Filipino hospitality in its services and interactions and implementing advanced processes in all facets of its business to make travel as hassle-free as possible.
Besides flying with comfort and warm Filipino hospitality, Sunlight Air further changes the aviation game by giving all its passengers access to an in-flight entertainment system. With this, passengers can access high-quality premium content such as movies, music, news, magazine, games, and more in full HD 1080p format.
Sunlight Air was set to launch last March 2020, but with the series of challenges that have been thrown this year, it has put its plans to a halt. However, the airline is now more than ready to officially #BringWarmthtotheSkies with stringent COVID-19 measures in place and a better and improved air travel experience.
The online launch was held online on 17 December 2020, at 3:00 p.m. via Zoom with the agenda of introducing Sunlight Air and its Covid-19 readiness to the public as well as announcing its first-ever travel bubble package in partnership with Asia Pacific Travel and Sunlight Ecotourism Island Resort (SETIR).
Asia Pacific Travel is the official travel agency of Sunlight Air with 8 years’ worth of experience in the tourism industry, while SETIR is one of the biggest privately-owned island resorts located in Culion, Palawan.
The launch of the all-inclusive travel bubble package with SETIR is set to take place from 24 December 2020 to 27 December 2020. The “Fly, Stay & Dine” to SETIR getaway promotes a concept of a safer way to resume domestic travel to Palawan with a chartered flight going to the private island.
The package includes roundtrip airfare from Manila to Busuanga, Palawan, and vice versa via Sunlight Air. A four-day and three-night accommodation for two in one of SETIR’s overwater villas inclusive of daily breakfast at Sun Cafe; roundtrip land and boat transfers from Busuanga Airport to the island and vice versa; one-time spa treatment at the Sanctuary Spa; one-time lunch or dinner by the beach; and P4,000 worth of food and beverage voucher.
With the package, Sunlight Air and its partners aim to take small but safe steps in recovering domestic tourism towards the new normal. Sunlight Air has been prepared for the new normal and was ever since agile to respond to the demands of the pandemic with its stringent health and safety protocols, decontamination procedures, and exclusive facilities that passengers may avail themselves the privacy away from the busy airport.
During the quarantine period, the team behind Sunlight Air has undergone numerous training and demo flights to ensure its preparedness when the right time comes. Now that the right time has finally come, Sunlight Air is more than ready in #BringingWarmthtotheSkies safely.
