Philippines charter airline Island Aviation has signed a firm purchase agreement to acquire two new Twin Otter Series 400 aircraft.
“We selected the Twin Otter to support our operations because of its long record of in-service reliability and low operating cost,” said Captain Emmanuel Generoso, chief operating officer, Island Aviation. “We are looking forward to the re-introduction of Twin Otters to our fleet where they will service the exclusive resort, Amanpulo with flights from Manila.
“De Havilland Canada is delighted to see the Twin Otter return to operation in the Philippines after a long absence and with such an experienced and well-regarded operator as Island Aviation,” said Philippe Poutissou, vice president, De Havilland Canada.
As a regional connectivity transportation solution, the Twin Otter is used worldwide for island hopping and commuter travel, offering flexible quick-change interior options in its configurable 19-passenger cabin.
The Twin Otter Series 400 provides the versatility, flexibility and performance to satisfy a wide variety of operational requirements. More than 140 Twin Otter Series 400 aircraft have been delivered to customers around the world.
