PAL and Cebu Pacific welcome five years of the Global Tourism Development Plan
Local airlines expressed their support for the National Tourism Development Plan (NTDP) for 2023 to 2028 on Tuesday, underlining the plan’s commitment to improving connectivity.
The NTDP outlines seven goals that concentrate on the fundamental building blocks of development. These goals include promoting the Philippines domestically and abroad and addressing key issues related to tourism development, such as infrastructure development, connectivity, and digitalization, equalizing tourism development and promotion, improving the overall tourist experience, and bolstering tourism governance.
“It is in keeping with our aim to meet the demands of our flying public to expand our network of flight paths. Philippine Airlines (PAL) spokesperson Cielo Villaluna told the Philippine News Agency, “We support the government’s objective to grow the tourism industry.
She added that the airline continues researching possible domestic, regional, and international routes. She described PAL’s mission as a national carrier as “creating air connectivity by leveraging the strategic location of our hubs.”
Villaluna pointed out that PAL can offer its customers more convenience, connectivity, and choice by running domestic, regional, and international flights into and out of Manila and reviving flights from our other hubs.
She showed how PAL has improved connectivity throughout the Philippines by utilizing Cebu’s strengths.
The airline offers flights from Cebu to Butuan, Baguio, Busuanga, Borongan, Caticlan, Puerto Princesa, Iloilo, Tacloban, Siargao, Cagayan de Oro, Zamboanga, and Bacolod.
On the other hand, PAL’s Cebu-Cotabato flights connect to Tawi-Tawi.
Meanwhile, Cebu Pacific (CEB) praised the government’s NTDP measures.
“CEB applauds these plans that will turn the Philippines into a tourism powerhouse within the next five years. According to spokesperson Carmina Romero, these activities will contribute to increasing trade and tourism, of which air travel will be crucial.
This month, the low-cost carrier will begin offering daily service between Manila and Laoag.
The opening of the Laoag route, the CEB’s 35th domestic destination, is expected to inspire more people to visit to and enjoy the Ilocos Region, according to CEB President Xander Lao.
We are thrilled to finally be able to bring more Juans to this lovely city because Laoag is so important in maintaining the nation’s rich history and culture, he said.
The only airline operating flights between Laoag and Ninoy Aquino International Airport is PAL.
