MANILA, Philippines - Flag carrier Philippine Airlines (PAL) is set to start direct flights from Tagbilaran to Incheon in South Korea and to Clark next month.

In a statement yesterday, PAL said the two new flights are part of the continuing route expansion.

“PAL’s direct Tagbilaran-Incheon and Tagbilaran-Clark flights allow travelers to reach their destination conveniently with no stop-over in Manila,” PAL said.

The flight from Tagbilaran to Incheon will be launched on June 22.

The new service will leave Tagbilaran at 5:20 p.m. daily and arrive in South Korea six hours later.

Through PAL’s new service, Tagbilaran will become the sixth local city to be linked to an international destination.

PAL operates international flights out of other local points such as Manila, Cebu, Clark, Kalibo and Puerto Princesa.

Meanwhile, the Tagbilaran-Clark flights will start on June 23.

The flight will depart Tagbilaran at 6:40 a.m. daily.

With the new service, PAL would be able to provide tourists direct access to central Luzon and central Visayas without having to endure Metro Manila’s traffic.

PAL’s flight network covers 29 domestic and 44 international destinations in Asia, Oceania, the Middle East, US and Europe (London).
