After the airline was established in 2008, operations between Clark International Airport and Taipei began in October 2011 with two flights each week. The airline soon developed a poor reputation as low passenger numbers led to it delaying or cancelling flights. The airline ceased operations in 2012 after only three months of flights.[2][3]

In 2016, its Airline Operator Certificate, a license to operate an airline under Philippine laws was resurrected under a different brand name Pan Pacific Airlines.
