Manila-based SkyJet has been granted a temporary operating permit by the Philippino Civil Aeronautics Board (CAB). The permit was issued on 3 August, and was effective immediately. SkyJet, which was forced to suspend its flights on 11 June when its previous provisional permit expired, is planning to restart operations on its previous route to Basco, in Batanes, and to add several new routes, to Virac in Catanduanes, Catarman in Camiguin, and Surigao in Surigao del Norte. All are tourist destinations which currently have limited or no airline service. In every case, the airline is partnering with local governments and tourism authorities. The airline’s fleet consists of a single BAe 146-200, RP-C5525 (msn E2031), which is operated on its behalf by Lionair. The airline has also mentioned the possibility of adding a series 100.
