Share

Manila Bulletin

Rugged and picturesque Basco in Batanes is now a short flight away for leisure travelers from Central and Northern Luzon with the launch on October 1, 2017 of regular Philippine Airlines (PAL) flights from Clark International Airport.

The four-times-a-week service from Clark complements PAL’s existing twice-a-day Manila-Basco flights.

The new flight, operated by PAL Express, departs Clark 11:45 a.m. every Monday, Wednesday, Friday, Sunday. The return flight leaves Basco 2:00 p.m. on the same days.

The Clark-Basco route offers convenient direct flight without the need for Central and Northern Luzon passengers to travel by land to Manila.

The new route is part of PAL’s development of Clark as a third hub of operations, following Manila and Cebu.

Meanwhile, the aircraft used on the Cebu-Cagayan de Oro and Cebu-Butuan routes is being upgraded to the next-generation, dual-class Bombardier Q400 also on October 1.

Passengers get to experience the new Q400’s spacious and quiet cabin comparable to jet airplanes.

The 86-seater Q400 flies twice a day on the Cebu-Cagayan de Oro and Cebu-Butuan service.

PAL has started taking delivery of 12 new Q400 turboprops that are being used to open new inter-island routes.

On November 1, PAL will open three new domestic routes out of Davao – to Zamboanga, Tagbilaran and Cagayan de Oro.
