List Of The Major Philippine Commercial Airlines

Before the Philippine Airline industry’s second liberalization back in 1995, Philippine Airlines was the country’s only airline. This airline was state owned and it remained that way as the country adopted the “one country, one airline” policy under the the administration of former President Ferdinand Marcos.
