SkyJet Airlines Appoints New President

SkyJet Airlines has revealed that it is naming Dino Reyes-Chua as the new President of Magnum Air Inc, which does business as SkyJet Airlines. Chua leads a group of investors that infused additional capital into SkyJet Airlines in order for the fledgling carrier to strengthen its position and operations in 2014.

The appointment was officially announced in December by former SkyJet President, Dr. Joel Mendoza. Mendoza, founder of the airline, will continue to serve as Chief Executive Officer and Chairman after stepping aside to to allow Chua, a young businessman and politician to step into the role of President. 

Chua was previously the youngest Vice-Mayor of Cavite City serving in that role between 2004 and 2010. He presently sits as a provincial board member of Cavite. In addition to his role as President of SkyJet Airlines, Chua, 33, also serves as Chairman and President of Greenbelt Hotels International which currently operates hotels in Ayala Center, Makati, and Coastal Bay, Cavite. An additional two hotels are expected to open this year. 

According to Chua, a graduate of Stanford University in the United States, SkyJet aims to steer clear of the low-cost carrier model that is highly competitive resulting in bad services and unsatisfied customers. "We want to be known as a first class Leisure Airline," said Chua. "We will continue to develop our niche in offering the only jet service to unique and exotic island destinations of the Philippines such as Coron in Palawan, Batanes, Cantanduanes, Siargao, and Boracay using a fleet of 2 British Aerospace Jet Aircraft."

SkyJet continues to pride itself on its fleet of British Aerospace Bae-146 aircraft, the same aircraft used by the British Royal Family in the United Kingdom. The four-engined aircraft is known for its quiet operation and is capable of landing and taking off on short runways that prevent other carriers from serving some of the island tourist destinations in the Philippines. SkyJet will be restoring flights in February after a three-month hiatus following an incident that damaged its sole aircraft on Balesin Island. The airline recently took delivery of a new aircraft to restore its flight operations in the Philippines.
