Airline companies can promote Palawan as tourism hot spot as Boracy closed for tourism

 Wednesday, April 11, 2018 


The province of Palawan in Philippines can be the next tourism destination as Boracay is closed for six months.



The government and commercial airlines are taking an opportunity to promote Palawan as the island tourism destination.


The government of Philippines and the private companies in travel and tourism industry can promote Palawan as an alternative destination to foreign visitors, as the island’s beaches continue to pique the interest of tourists.



Philippine Airlines (PAL), Philippines AirAsia and Cebu Pacific operate several international flights in and out of Kalibo International Airport—one of the two gateways to the island of Boracay. AirAsia currently holds the lion’s share of Kalibo’s international traffic.



Kalibo currently has an average of 24 daily return flights, with about 60,000 weekly seats. It has three domestic destinations and 13 international destinations.



Palawan is one of the best destinations in the country that could easily absorb traffic that was supposed to be for Boracay.  Boracay is the third -largest aviation market in the Philippines, after Manila and Cebu.
