AT YOUR SERVICE: IAU’s CHARTER SERVICE PROVIDER ORMOC AIR IS NOW OPEN.
After years of planning and thorough preparations, Indiana Aerospace University’s (IAU) very own charter service provider Ormoc Air is now fully operational and ready to serve its stakeholders and the public. With the airline companies returning to new normal operations, air traffic is likely to emerge as a pressing problem in the post-pandemic era. To help decongest the traffic, IAU saw the need to establish a private charter service provider in the country which will benefit small-time airline operators and the local community. CEO of IAU Harold E. Toring unveiled in an interview that Ormoc Air was established as a mini aerotropolis and designed to help the community in terms of aerial tours, medical evacuation, and logistical transportation services for clients who wish to go to specific regions in the country that cannot be reached by major airlines. It is also projected that there will be an influx of tourists since air transportation providers such as Ormoc Air will now be more accessible to the public at reasonable rates. More importantly, Mr. Toring emphasized that Ormoc Air will cater to the university’s very own student interns for their on-the-job training, and the IAU graduates to build industry-related experience.
