Aviation Partnership Philippines Corporation (Aplus) is an organization that was brought to life as a necessity in airline operations that eventually grew into the promising business venture that it is today. Our journey began when Cebu Pacific, being a low-cost carrier, whose direction then was to focus on its core activities, decided to outsource its maintenance and engineering support. In April 2005, Singapore Airlines Engineering Company and Cebu Pacific Air signed a joint venture agreement which gave birth to Aplus whose main business is to provide line and light maintenance services. In July of the same year, Aplus officially commenced its operations. In November 2020 however, together with the appointment of a mostly new core management team in the company, Cebu Pacific decided to take sole ownership of Aplus. The company has been thriving since as the new management navigated itself through the pandemic and is now poised to take off to reach even greater heights with the full backing of its sole parent.
The Company is constantly investing in infrastructure. We have the newly-opened and renovated aircraft hangar at the Terminal 4 area which now allows Aplus to perform Lighter Checks and other tasks in a protected environment. Inaugurated in December 2021, the hangar can fit two (2) ATR 72 aircraft side-by-side with 2 meters clearance wing-to-wing inside the hangar or one (1) A320 variant with tail out. We also currently have three (3) buildings in our main office: Building 1 housing the support offices, training department, warehouse, and wheels and brakes shops, while Buildings 2 and 3 houses the Calibration Lab, Battery, and Cabin shops. An office at Bay 112 in Terminal 3 exists for Line Maintenance Control which is the center of coordination for operations. At Bay 119 is our War Room and Tool Room which are located close to our ramp operations. Offices also exist in MIAA Terminal 1, Cebu, Davao, Iloilo, and Kalibo where, aside from Cebu Pacific, we provide line maintenance services to third party customers.
Who We Are Now
Aplus which started as a product of 2 giants in the industry, both accomplished and renowned in their own right, despite the independence of its new management team, now stands with the full support of its parent, Cebu Pacific, one of the country’s flagship carriers and a subsidiary of one of the Philippines’ biggest conglomerates, JG Summit. From its humble beginnings when it was operating as the maintenance department of Cebu Pacific, Aplus today dominates and is recognized as the second biggest Line Maintenance services provider in the country based on volume of flights handled. Upholding the same standards of quality and safety that our founders have been known for, the company has gone a long way to finally becoming a key player in the Maintenance, Repair and Overhaul business in the aviation industry.
We are in the business of keeping aircraft flying by providing the highest standards of aircraft maintenance for our valued customers. We are a family of highly trained, experienced and dedicated professionals. We consistently provide healthy returns to our shareholders and significantly contribute to the development of our people and the communities we serve.
