CAA Lifts SEAIR, SKYJET Suspensions

8 July 2015

The Civil Aviation Authority of the Philippines (CAAP) has lifted Suspension orders imposed on Seair International and Magnum Air (Skyjet) Inc. after both airlines complied with reportorial requirements amidst safety concerns addressed to them by European Union Aviation regulator.

CAAP in a statement said the May 15 suspension orders on the Air Operators Certificates (AOCs) of the two airlines were lifted after corrective measures were introduced by the airlines after they were assessed safety breaches by EASA inspection audit in April.

The airlines however would remain under intensive surveillance by CAAP until actual flight data monitoring reports are submitted to the agency.

Seair flies from Manila to Basco, Caticlan, and Tablas, while Skyjet mounts flights from Manila to Basco and Busuanga.

The European Aviation Safety Agency has been assessing the countries airlines following repeated failures to comply with international aviation standards in the past. To date only Philippine Airlines and Cebu Pacific got safety clearance to fly the European Union.
