Mosphil Aero is an airline based in Makati City, Manila, Philippines. It operates domestic passenger and cargo services around the southern Philippines, primarily from Zamboanga International Airport.
The airline has shown interest in focusing on the special region known as the BIMP-EAGA Region (Brunei, Indonesia, Malaysia, Philippines, East Asean Growth Area). There have been air pacts and agreements in this region, that Mosphil will likely take advantage of. Routes to and from Davao, Kota Kinabalu and Manado, Indonesia, are likely in the future, according to Lamela, the airline's sales and marketing director.
Mosphil was founded in 2005, the airline started operations in November 2006, backed by Russian interests, with over 40 employees (at March 2007). Mosphil Aero hoped to launch its Zamboanga City-Sandakan-Kota Kinabalu route on 30 August 2006, subject to obtaining the relevant permits. Aircraft would initially be operated by Russian crews while the Filipino pilots undergo training at the Antonov Training Center in Kiev, Ukraine. Following a test flight in late August 2006, Mosphil Aero operated its first commercial flight from Zamboanga to Sandakan and back on 12 November 2006 using an Antonov An-24 aircraft with a Russian crew. The service will operate three times weekly.
