- Then she went on to reveal a more interesting story about the Philippine Airlines voice
The women behind the Philippine Airlines in-flight voice over were finally revealed — yes, women!
Inka Magnaye has revealed on social media that she is the voice behind the famous in-flight greeting of the Philippine Airlines by doing an impromptu in-flight greeting via TikTok while she made her mother repeat after her.
Little did the netizens know that they were already seeing the women behind the voices of the airline a generation apart in that 50-second video.
Magnaye then took to Facebook an interesting story about her securing the job. And it’s not what you think. She secured the project not because she is the daughter of the airline’s voice in the 90s.
In fact, her clients, she bared, were clueless until she revealed it to them on the day of the recording.
“Did you know that my mom was the in-flight voice over for Philippine Airlines back in the 90s?” she recalled; asking her clients before they proceeded with the recording. “The clients and our sound engineer for the project all gasped in surprise. They didn’t know! They asked me what my mom’s name was, I said, ‘Lindy,’”

”Clients were amazed because out of a blind audition where several women sent in their samples, my voice was chosen, without knowing who I was or who my mom was, because I sounded the most like their brand. And it made sense because my mom was the sound of their brand, and I sound like my mom,” she said.
Now, it makes sense how her mom delivered the in-flight greeting like a pro in the video –because she actually is a pro!
Magnaye further shared that it wasn’t the first time she worked with her mom for the same clients, simply because their voices are so similar.
“For example, we’ve done work for skin care products where my mom’s voice was used for products aimed at older women, and my voice was used for the younger line. Same goes for banks and telcos,” she said.
”My mom is one of my biggest mentors in my voice over career, and I learn from her every day. Even doing this video with her, I learned so much just by listening to her change the pace, style, and words she’d emphasize…I’m learning from the best,” Magnaye concluded.
The video instantly trended hours after posting. It has already gained 230K views, 19k reactions, and 7.1K shares as of writing.
