Why Fly SkyJet

Loyalty Programs, Discounts and Miles Promotions

At this time, SkyJet does not have a frequent flier program available for its passengers. As it is a boutique airline with limited domestic flights, SkyJet makes up for its lack of features by making remote parts of the Philippines more easily accessible to travelers. SkyJet does, however, offer exclusive discounts on travel through its website and often features seat sales depending on the time of year.

How to Check In, Seat Assignment, Leg Room and Other Fees

Currently, SkyJet does not have either online capabilities for check-in or a mobile smartphone application for passenger use. All passengers of SkyJet must check-in for flights at the departure airport check-in counter. The check-in counter for SkyJet flights opens two hours before departure and closes approximately 45 minutes before the scheduled departure. Be sure to check-in on time for your flight, otherwise, SkyJet may cancel your reservation or move you to a waitlist in order to facilitate passengers that have arrived on time (check-in at least 45 minutes before your scheduled departure). Passengers are responsible for bringing all necessary identification to the airport (passports for international travelers, or Government issued identification for domestic travelers) as well as their flight itinerary for reference. Customers who do not have proper identification will not be allowed onboard SkyJet flights as the flight agents require proper identification in order to check passengers in. After you have checked in, be sure to be at the boarding gate at least 20 minutes before your scheduled departure time, otherwise, you will not be accepted onto the plane for boarding and be charged a "no-show at the gate" fee.

Seating with SkyJet is at random and cannot be booked in advance. Once you arrive in the aircraft, you will be assigned a seat according to the cabin crew's wishes. Any customer that has special requests should contact the airline prior to the departure date to see whether special arrangements can be made, otherwise, seats will be as assigned by the attendants. However, the model of planes (BAe 146-100s and BAe 146-200s) are known for having ample legroom and, as the flights are short, you won't have to worry about being uncomfortable for too long.

Though there aren't any hidden booking fees, passengers of SkyJet should be aware that most tickets for flights are non-refundable once purchased.

Baggage Allowance and Fees

As SkyJet is a smaller, boutique airline, you need to be smart about what you're packing with you--but when you're on your way to paradise, you won't need to pack much anyways. Each passenger is allotted 1 free check-in bag (maximum 10kg in weight) and 1 free carry-on baggage (maximum 5kg in weight). For carry-on baggage, the maximum dimensions for your bag are 20 x 32 x 45cm as the bags must be able to be safely stowed below the seat in front of you, or in the overhead bins during takeoff and landing.

For any passengers who have overweight baggage, the fee is $3 USD per extra kilogram. It is not recommended that passengers check any extremely valuable or fragile items in their checked baggage as SkyJet cannot be responsible for any damages that may occur to checked baggage. If you still choose to check valuables or fragile items, you do so at your own risk. It would be best, however, to travel with your valuables in your carry-on baggage or on your person (in your wallet, money belt, or purse).

For passengers traveling with oversized items, such as bikes, golfing sets, scuba equipment, surfboards, or items that are over 1.22m in height (4 feet) they will have to pay a handling fee for their items of approximately $24 USD per item and are also subject to the excess baggage fee (they are not a part of the free baggage allowance). The maximum total weight for these bulky items is 15kgs per person, per way, so plan accordingly.

Passengers who are traveling with checked baggage, and those who know how much baggage in total that they will be traveling with, are able to prepay for their checked baggage on SkyJet flights. You can make use of this service by either prepaying for baggage on SkyJet's website or by contacting either their call center or sales office up to 4 hours prior to your scheduled departure. There is a limit on how much baggage passengers can prepay for. On flights with destinations of Basco Airport and Sayak Airport, the maximum weight available for prepaid luggage is 10kg; for flights with destinations of Godofredo P. Ramos Airport and Francisco B. Reyes Airport, the maximum weight for prepaid luggage is 20kg. Prepaid luggage is non-refundable and non-transferable, so be sure to contact SkyJet directly and work out exactly how much prepaid luggage you should be purchasing.

For those customers who have baggage that exceeds SkyJet's maximum requirements, SkyJet also offers a cargo service by Flash Cargo and passengers are able to send cargo to and from Skyjet destinations in Manila, Batanes, Basco, Coron, Busuanga, Boracay, and Caticlan. For passengers who wish to arrange cargo services, please contact Flash Cargo at (+632) 823-3366, 587-1961, 24 hours a day, to arrange your shipment. Flash Cargo does not accept valuable items (such as cash or jewelry) for transportation and the fees will depend on the items transported, their weights and dimensions.

Service On Board: In-flight Entertainment and Meals

Flights are short with SkyJet, which means you get to spend less time traveling and more time at your destination. For passengers looking for a way to pass the time, you are welcome to bring your own personal electronic device for your flight with SkyJet (or a book or magazine), just be sure that you have your device placed in airplane safe mode before bringing it out to use.

As SkyJet is a short distance, boutique airline with routes throughout the Philippines, the amenities are limited. During your flight with SkyJet, you should expect snacks and a drink. Most flights are near or under an hour long, so full meals are not provided.

Child Fares/Fees, Minor Service Guidelines

On SkyJet, children under 8 will not be accepted for flight services unless they are accompanied by an adult (18 years of age or older). Children who are between 8 to 12 years of age are able to fly unaccompanied on SkyJet flights provided there is a ticket purchased for the child and that they pay a service fee (approximately $20 USD). Please download and fill out the Unaccompanied Minors form provided by SkyJet prior to your arrival at the airport. During the booking process, SkyJet will need information regarding the identity of the guardian that will be picking up your child upon arrival at the destination, so please be sure to contact either the reservation office or ticketing office to ensure that SkyJet has all the pertinent information concerning your child.

If expectant mothers are planning on traveling with SkyJet, any expectant mothers that are less than 6 months pregnant are required to fill out an EMIS (expectant mothers information sheet) part 1 and provide a medical certificate to SkyJet proving they have their doctor's permission to fly. Any expectant mother between 6 and 8 months pregnant must fill out the EMIS part 2 and can only fly with a doctor's explicit permission.

Those passengers who will need extra help onboard (those suffering from illness, who are incapacitated or who have special service needs) are required to contact SkyJet's office team at least 3 days prior to departure to ensure that adequate services will be available to meet the passenger's needs. SkyJet hopes to be able to provide services to all passengers and endeavors to do so with both the safety of the passengers and crew in mind.

SkyJet does also offer reasonably priced optional health insurance, Travel Shield, to all of its passengers. This travel plan offers 24-hour accident insurance coverage during the passenger's trip but is only available to commercial flight passengers. Coverage includes animal bites (cat, dog, snake bites only), accidental poisoning (food and gas), and acts of nature. Passengers who are up to 65 years of age are able to opt-in for this coverage.

Pet Policy

At this time, SkyJet does not have an official policy concerning air travel with a pet, but as they are a boutique airline, customers should assume that any air travel with a pet on SkyJet will be limited at best. Contact SkyJet if you will be traveling in the Philippines with a pet and determine whether you will be able to bring your animal on the plane with you. Animal owners are always responsible for all proper documentation for their pet, including any quarantine papers, vaccination reports, and health certificates. Be sure to have all relevant travel and pet information prior to making your call to SkyJet so that they can help determine whether they will be able to facilitate traveling with a pet on their airline.
