PAL Reduces Flights to Boracay But Adds More to Other Tourist Destinations

With Boracay being closed down for six months starting April 26, Philippine Airlines (PAL) announced its new flights scheme for Caticlan and Kalino airports. PAL will reduce its flights to Boracay from April 26 but will maintain some “to help ensure the continued growth of domestic tourism.”

Late Wednesday, Malacanang announced the six-month closure of Boracay to tourists as it undergoes rehabilitation. As such, flights to the area, which reach its peak during the summer months, will be greatly affected.

In its advisory, PAL said flights to Kalibo and Caticlan will be reduced from April 20 to October 27. However, it will add more flights to Busuanga (Coron), Siargao, Cebu, Iloilo, Puerto Princesa and Bacolod to absorb the expected traffic of tourists to the said areas with Boracay’s closure.
