Here’s why you should try flying on a boutique airline


With the holidays just around the corner, more and more travelers are finding themselves up in the air on the way to picturesque destinations and exciting vacation hotspots. Kids and adults alike are surely buzzing with energy, bouncing in their seats in anticipation of getting their holiday started. 

While the destination is what we’re all typically looking forward to the most, why not make the journey just as memorable with a unique airline experience? 

Instead of opting for the usual low-cost or flag carriers that cater to thousands of passengers every day, travelers are now looking to try boutique airlines such as Sunlight Air—known for standing out with its personalized customer experience and exclusive short-haul domestic routes.

What exactly differentiates a boutique airline from the rest? Read on for some features to take into consideration when you plan your next flight.

Easy-to-build itinerary

Boutique airlines aim to make your travels go as smoothly as possible by providing you with additional services that can round up your itinerary without having to make multiple bookings.

Aside from booking round-trip flights, passengers can also book hotel accommodations and airport transfers at their destination. Some boutique airlines even offer complete packages that include meals and attractions, on top of completely chartered flights!


While these services vary from airline to airline, the common objective is to provide passengers with stress-free travel all the same.

Quality experience with every flight

Part of what makes boutique airlines more exclusive compared to other types of carriers is their use of smaller fleets. With some airlines having as few as 8 seats or as many as 80, it allows for a more private and personalized experience compared to bigger commercial airlines. 


Additionally, boutique airlines tend to service a smaller number of short-haul domestic destinations, keeping consistent with their goal of maintaining quality in-flight experiences and services. In the Philippines, these destinations include key vacation spots such as Coron, Caimiguin, and Siargao among others.

Intimate yet comfortable travels

Despite the limited number of seats on the aircraft, it is because of this that boutique airlines are able to provide a higher standard of customer service for every passenger on board. While limited in seating capacity, passengers are still treated to wider leg room and the full attention of the flight crew. 


Filipinos looking to travel with big families or barkadas need not go abroad to experience such exclusive experiences. Since 2019, Sunlight Air has been providing Filipinos with the complete boutique airline experience. 

With its fleet of three ATR 72-500s, the airline aims to maximize its aircrafts through exclusive short-haul and inter-island flights to local dream destinations like San Vicente, Camiguin, and Busuanga, among others. Their special services such as the Travel Bubble and Easy Shuttle allow for easy booking of accommodations and transfer services on top of their flights.
