PAL now operates daily Tagbilaran-Incheon (South Korea) flights, allowing travelers to reach their destination conveniently with no stopover in Manila.
PAL also opened a new Cebu-Tagbilaran route, the first domestic link to Bohol outside of Manila, on June 22.
“Making Tagbilaran a new international gateway provides foreigners with the fastest link to the attractions of Bohol and nearby Visayas cities. Linking international points to sought-after places in the Visayas through convenient connections is the flag carrier’s way of catering to the travel needs of our patrons,” PAL president and chief operating officer Jaime J. Bautista said in a statement.
Other Philippine cities with international PAL flights include Manila, Cebu, Clark, and Kalibo.
The new Tagbilaran service also provides Korean travelers—comprising the country’s largest tourist arrivals—direct access to Bohol’s unique attractions, from tarsiers to the Chocolate Hills.
The Cebu-Tagbilaran flight, meanwhile, operates daily. Tagbilaran, located on the southwestern tip of the island province of Bohol, is just 72 kilometers south of Cebu City. From Cebu, holiday seekers can connect to 12 domestic and six international destinations.
