Footloose in The Philippines: Deregulation Start-Ups by Henry Tenby
Airways, July-August, 1997

Back in the mid 90s, I was intrigued by all the low cost airlines starting up in the Philippines soon after that country deregulated their airline industry.

So on Christmas Day, 1996, I boarded a Philippine Airlines MD-11 in Vancouver and flew over to Manila to check out the scene first hand.

During my visit I purchased flights on Cebu Pacific and rode their DC-9 down to Mactan Island in Cebu. I also flew on an Air Philippines NAMC YS-11 from Manila over to the old Clark Air Force Base airfield. My visit to the Philippines was extremely enjoyable and interesting, and it is documented in full in the article below.
