Air Manila was a domestic airline in the Philippines. It was based out of Manila and operated propeller aircraft including the Handley Page Dart Herald, Fokker F27 Friendship and Lockheed L-188 Electra.
In the 1970s Air Manila obtained five second-hand Boeing 707s, with the goal of starting an international air service under the name of "Air Manila International". This move was opposed by Philippine Airlines (PAL), the national flag-carrier. Under government pressure, Air Manila and Filipinas Orient Airways were merged into PAL in 1973.
