FOREIGNERS DEPART MANILA FOR MALAYSIA, SOUTH AFRICA AND ZIMBABWE
June 25, 2020
Committed in providing service to the world during these challenging times, Ages Aviation Center, Inc. provided service to a chartered Boeing 767 Air Zimbabwe aircraft last Thursday aiding nationals from Malaysia, South Africa and Zimbabwe who were still in the Philippines, to go home after the Philippines closed its borders due to the coronavirus pandemic.
Ages provided full passenger handling services—which included special arrangements for check-in counters at the Ninoy Aquino International Airport Terminal 1, assisting passengers through the departure clearing and health screening process in addition to gate arrangements for passenger aircraft boarding. Because of safety protocols set by the carrier, Ages made special arrangements by request for passengers to board through the aircraft rear door while following the guidelines of the Philippine Government’s Inter-Agency Task Force for the Management of Emerging Infections Diseases (AITF-EID).
Upholding its commitment to ensuring efficient and effective ground handling services despite unique conditions, Ages is privileged to provide this exclusive service to Air Zimbabwe and its passengers. We wish them well on their journey home.

Ages Aviation provided cargo handling service to Juneyao Airlines’ cargo-only flights from Shanghai to Manila—and with 40 years of experience in the industry, Ages arranged swift offloading of these COVID-19 test kits and protective equipment from the aircraft cabin and delivered it straight to the warehouse where the Department of Health (DOH) was able to properly receive the items for immediate distribution.
Ages is one with the world in its fight against the coronavirus pandemic. Unparalleled service to assisting everyone else in keeping healthy and safe.

Dave Chappelle LIVE in Manila
January 14-15, 2020
American actor and comedian Dave Chappelle brought his award-winning stand-up comedy show to Manila for the first time to The Theatre at Solaire Resort and Casino last January 14 and 15, 2020
For the past four years, the 46-year old writer-producer has performed in over 1,600 shows worldwide. The comic has five Netflix comedy specials, his latest one being the Grammy-nominated Sticks and Stones. The Art of Spin, Deep in the Heart of Texas, Equanimity, and The Bird Revelations each bagged a Grammy award for Best Comedy Album in 2018 and 2019.
Ages is honored to have been of service to Mr. Chappelle and his family who arrived in Manila days before his show to enjoy one of the Philippines’ renowned beaches. Mr. Chappelle arrived on a private Bombardier Global Express that was parked at the Balagbag “AGES” Ramp which is a stone’s throw away from the Ages lounge where he and his guests could relax and wait prior to their flight.
Mr. Chappelle’s aircraft was on the ground when Taal Volcano erupted and was at one point covered with ash from the eruption. Ages provided complete aircraft exterior washing to the GLEX and ensured that it was free and clear from all residue as a result of the ashfall in time for Mr. Chappelle’s early departure from Manila after his show.
It was both a pleasure and privilege being of service to this Emmy-winning celebrity.
