PAL reveals Busuanga to be a top flight market

Unknown to many, the Clark-Busuanga flight had peaked to be one of the strong airline market, besting even the number of flights being launched to Puerto Princesa, Cebu and other regional centers out of the fastest growing airport in the country today.

Starting December 1 this year, Philippine Airlines will increase its Clark flight to the northern Palawan destination from seven to 35 flights a week or a whopping 400 increase.

On the other hand, PAL only has 14 and 7 flights from Clark to Cebu and Puerto Princesa , respectively. Coming close to the Busuanga frequencies will be flights to Basco in Northern Luzon and Siargao in Mindanao, also with 14 flights a week each.

“There is a big demand for Busuanga (flight) in Central Luzon. The attractiveness is better than the Boracay,” says Harry Inoferio, PAL Senior Assistant Vice President, said in a press conference.

“There is more to see in Busuanga more than just the beaches. It offers picnic areas, some hideaways and it is really cheaper to go there,” Inoferio added.

Busuanga is the gateway to Coron island, one of the most visited islands of Palawan.

While he notes that Siargao, Boracay and Puerto Princesa are favorites, Inoferio wonders “why Busuanga is not in the list of top destinations”.

For his part Bonifacio Sam, PAL Express President, said that majority of flights to Busuanga come from Clark. He said the record is higher than those in Manila and even greater than the flights of two other airlines that has flights to the northern island of Palawan.

PAL has recently launched three new flights out of Clark. They include:

Starting with only with one flight in 2017, the airline now has a total of 19 destinations from Clark.

Last Thursday, the airline announced that beginning Oct. 28, PAL will offer the Clark-San Vicente (Palawan) and Clark-San Jose (Mindoro) routes, while flights between Clark and Cauayan (Isabela) will begin on Oct. 30.
