MANILA, Philippines - Air Juan Aviation Inc. is planning to acquire additional aircraft in the next five years as it aims to double capacity and grow the business.

Air Juan marketing head Paolo Misa said in a briefing yesterday the company is looking to invest in additional aircraft as it wants to double capacity in the next five years.

Air Juan president John Anthony Gutierrez said the plan to increase the fleet would depend on the demand and reception of the service.

At present, the company has a fleet of 11 aircraft composed of seaplanes, land planes and helicopters.

It provides services to destinations such as Busuanga or Coron, Mamburao, Subic, Puerto Galera, Marinduque, Balesin, Boracay, San Vicente, Puerto Princesa, Cuyo, Iloilo, Sipalay, Bantayan, Tagbilaran, Siquijor, Maasin, Biliran, Manila and Cebu.

Currently, it serves around 1,000 to 1,500 passengers per month for scheduled services.

“We hope to double that (passenger volume) in five years,” Misa said.

Gutierrez said the company also wants to expand the number of destinations being served.
