New airline to fly in BARMM region

CAGAYAN DE ORO CITY, Philippines — A new airline is set to commence operations in the Bangsamoro region on April 24, promising to invigorate economic activity and entice external investors to explore lucrative business prospects in the area.

Bangsamoro Transportation and Communications Minister Paisalin Pangandaman Tago, along with Mohammad Omar Pasigan, Chairperson of the Bangsamoro Board of Investments, disclosed separately to reporters in the city that Bangsamoro Airways, a newly-established airline, will initiate flights connecting Cotabato, Zamboanga, and Sulu province in the southernmost part of the Philippines.

Sulu, situated within the Bangsamoro Autonomous Region in Muslim Mindanao, is among the focal points for this aviation endeavor.

Operated by Filipino and Malaysian capitalists, Bangsamoro Airways will operate ten-seater passenger planes traversing routes such as Cotabato-Zamboanga-Tawi-Tawi, as outlined by Pasigan.

“This marks another milestone in the Bangsamoro government’s endeavor to demonstrate to both local and foreign investors the conducive environment for capital-intensive ventures within the autonomous region,” remarked Pasigan.

Tago expressed optimism, highlighting the collaborative efforts of agencies under his purview to ensure the seamless operation of Bangsamoro Airways across the autonomous region.

“We are encouraged by the positive reception from the business communities within and beyond the Bangsamoro region, signaling their readiness to embrace this new airline service,” Tago remarked.

Next week, Tago, Pasigan, and representatives of Bangsamoro Airways will officiate the launch ceremony at Cotabato Airport in nearby Datu Odin Sinsuat town, symbolizing the commencement of operations within the Bangsamoro Autonomous Region in Muslim Mindanao (BARMM), which encompasses Maguindanao del Sur, Maguindanao del Norte, Lanao del Sur, Basilan, Sulu, and Tawi-Tawi, along with the cities of Lamitan, Marawi, and Cotabato.
