Although the Philippines lists many registered airline companies, there are only five competing commercial airlines with scheduled flights serving the domestic market. Leading among the five is Cebu Pacific which has captured 45.6 percent of the market and the Philippine Airlines - PAL Express group has flown a combined 4.9 million passengers. Air Philippines is in third followed by Zest Airways which has overtaken South East Asian Airlines.

Air Philippines became a sister company of Philippine Airlines when the Lucio Tan group acquired ownership of the airlines from William Gatchalian of the Wellex group of companies.

Zest Air which is formerly Asian Spirit has been acquired by Alfredo M. Yao of the Zest-O juice drink fame. AMY Holdings which owns Zest Airways has been planning to acquire South East Asian Airlines but the Lopez-Gitsis-Dornier tandem refuses to badge Yao's offer of merger.

The other locally-registered airlines operate either domestic charter services, serve purely international routes or cargo services only.
