MacroAsia Catering Services (MACS) is the first fully functional In-flight Catering facility located inside the premises of the Ninoy Aquino International Airport (NAIA) in Manila, Philippines.
It was incorporated on 18 October 1996. After two years of continuous planning, preparation and construction, it started its commercial operations on 9 August 1998, with Air Macau and Singapore Airlines as its first customers.
Its strength as a business entity is founded on the solid partnership of two (2) highly reputable and progressive companies: MacroAsia Corporation (Philippines), and SATS Ltd (Singapore).
MacroAsia Corporation (MAC) is a publicly listed Filipino corporation basically in the business of Aviation Support Services. As the major partner, it has a stake of 67% in MACS. Being physically closest to MACS, as the other owner is based abroad, MacroAsia Corporation provides immediate support to MACS, in any contingency.
SATS Ltd has several other joint venture kitchens spread out all over Asia. It holds 33% ownership in MACS. As a strong aviation service player in the Asia-Pacific region, it actively provides technical support to MACS, and also serves as a vital player in the raw materials supply chain of MACS.
The synergies derived from the formidable partnership and support of the shareholders is the strength behind MACS! Today, MACS has the distinction of being the only airline caterer in the Philippines to be HACCP Certified (Cert. No. CIP/3486/04/08/379 issued on 20Aug04) in addition to holding an ISO 9001:2008 Certificate from Certification International (Cert. No. CI/1955Q-UKAS 063) and HALAL certificate from the National Commission on Muslim Filipinos (Cert. Code OMA-PHCRA 001).
Truly, MACS has lived up to the distinction as the most preferred airline caterer at NAIA, which consistently gives its clients worry-free operations, and service at world-class standards.
