Logo EditThe Sarimanok is a magical, mythical bird that brings good luck to anyone who are able to catch it. The Sarimanok, known as Magaul, is associated with the legend of Malakas and Maganda. Magaul was the Sarimanok bird that pecked the bamboo from where Malakas and Maganda were born from.
The SPIRIT of Manila Airlines imbibes the concept and definition of the Sarimanok. The airline intends to bring the sarimanok spirit to new “Filipino Heroes,” our overseas workers.
The airline will epitomize the sarimanok's spirit of bringing good luck and abundance by transporting our OFWs on their mission: to reap and share their fortunes to their families and his home country.
Accordingly, it was a sarimanok that catalyze the birth of Malakas (strong) and Maganda (beautiful) which the SPIRIT of Manila Airlines capitalizes on its core of airline operation. A strong and dynamic culture of safety and reliability outlined by the beautiful concepts of affordability and convenience entrenched by customer service focused programs.
