[strike]Asian Spirit[/strike] or Cebu Pacific for Boracay.


Asian Spirit now Zest Air    http://www.zestair.com.ph/
I think they have seaplane service???

I recently read that Caticlan airport is closed at the moment so you might want to check that out......maybe open when you wanna go

WGA used to run a ferry service from Manila - Dumaguit (not Dunaguete)-Roxas out of South Harbour (Manila)......can\'t seem to track it down on internet
Dumaguit is just south of Kalibo

They also fly into Kalibo Airport, which is what Glo and I did.  We then took an air/con van ride over the mountain to Caticlan to the jetty port for our water transport to the island.

Seaplanes?  That could turn into a wild landing!   :o  ;D ;D

Only Seaair is fying into Caticlan at the moment for safety reasons. Other airlines have been redirected to Kailbo.  Heard mix reports when Caticlan is due to open again for larger aircraft, at present cannot seem to book flights to Caticalan (apart from SeaAir)

Woopsie.....getting my Dorniers mixed up the Do 328 is the current SeaAir plane
I guess the name SEAAir, the Dornier connexion with seaplanes and the widebody of the 328 with wheels up gave me the impression it was a seaplane.

There is a Do 24 that IS a SEAPLANE owned by Iren Dornier and does double duty flying UNICEF missions for children in the Philippines and also charter work for SeaAir

You can just make out the Philippines flag on the nearest tail fin.

BTW, SEAIR stands for \"South East Asian Airlines\".  There is no specific connection to \"seaplanes\", in spite of the 3-engine Dornier seaplane shown in your photo.    http://www.flyseair.com/

Nice plane, though.  I\'d like to own one!  I can imagine me flying into many remote islands for day trips.   :)


Ooops!

DOH! something funny about this, I did my homework,and found that ZEST has had quite a history of overshooting the runways and rough landings and such.....so I booked my flight to Bora on Seair...not a week later this happened :) fasten you seat belts folks its gunna be a fun ride.

Back to the OP, Zest airways is generally cheaper, but I got my flight on Seair under alean season  promo..flight for 2 roundtrip Manila/Cataclan ...ready for this? PHP 1933   now thay had a sneaky little some kind of flight insurance that I didnt uncheck from a box in checkout PHP250 per person, if I would have been more careful and not chose that option my total would have been PHP1433  less than 30 bucksUS....you cant beat that with a stick those are totals all fees and taxes included
just hop online and take your time searching dates and different flights to score the best prices
