MANILA, Philippines — Flag carrier Philippine Airlines (PAL) will resume its flights to Boracay tomorrow following the government’s decision to reopen the area to more local tourists.

PAL said the resumption of its services to Boracay via Caticlan airport in Aklan is seen to boost domestic tourism.

PAL’s Manila-Caticlan-Manila service will depart at 11:10 a.m. and arrive at Caticlan’s Godofredo Ramos Airport at 12:10 p. m.

The flag carrier plans to launch flights on Oct. 4, 9 and 11 to pave the way for a regular twice weekly Manila-Caticlan-Manila schedule every Friday and Sunday starting Oct 16.

Boracay will accept tourists from areas under general community quarantine and modified general community quarantine starting tomorrow.

Caticlan Airport will be the sole port of entry for tourists arriving by plane.

Affordable fares

Meanwhile, low-cost carrier AirAsia Philippines is supporting the reopening of Boracay with affordable fares.

AirAsia said it is offering base fares for as low as P8, including hotel accomodation and activities, up to 30 percent off on flights and eight percent off on Boracay activities.

The offers are available at the airline’s website for booking until Oct. 4 for travel from Oct. 1 to June 30, 2021.

Both airlines assure passengers of their strict adherence to health and safety protocols.

They also reminded travelers to present a negative swab test result taken not earlier than 48 hours prior to the date of travel.

Health protocols will be strictly enforced on the island, the airlines said.
