Last September, Air Juan launched direct flights betweenBoracay and Coron every Tuesday and Saturday using a brand new Cessna Grand Caravan EX Seaplane. On Thursdays and Sundays, Air Juan also operates flights between Coron and Puerto Princesa.
According to Air Juan’s Chief Marketing Officer, Tina Di Cicco, the airline promises not only a brand new aircraft but a brand new experience as well. “Not only will we have brand new aircraft using the latest in aviation technology, we also make sure that our aircraft is in the best condition every single flight to bring you to your destination in class and style,” said Di Cicco.
The service is now the fastest link between two of the nation’s most popular tourist destinations. There are currently no other scheduled flights between Coron andBoracay. The forty-five minute charter flight operates from Godofredo Ramos International Airport in Caticlan and the Francisco Reyes Airport in Coron. “This new Air Juan route lets you spend your time in your destination, not on the journey there,” said Di Cicco. Air Juan is also offering service from Puerto Princesa to the Cuyo Islands, located in the Sulu Sea, and plans to eventually launch service from Coron to El Nido.
The new service is an ideal fit for these two destinations as many resorts in Boracay will begin sending their guests to their sister resorts in Coron. According to Mayor Fem Reyes of Coron, exit surveys conducted by the Coron Tourism Office revealed that a direct flight between Coron and Boracay has been at the top of the tourist wishlist. “We’re glad Air Juan made this great and bold decision,” added Reyes.
Prior to the launch of non-stop flights between Boracay and Coron, tourists had to endure a 12-hour ferry ride or fly back to Manila or Cebu for a connecting flight, which could easily take up to 8 hours. The new service cuts travel time to a mere 45 minutes with fares beginning as low as P3,499 each way including 10 kilograms of luggage allowance.
The flight between Coron and Boracay covers a distance of nearly 200 kilometres. Not only does the flight offer the fastest and most direct route between the islands, but it also offers the most scenic flight with the aircraft only cruising at an altitude of up to 9,000 feet depending on weather conditions.
Boracay Island is the most popular tourist destination in the Philippines and the most visited place in the nation after Manila, while Coron is the second most popular destination in Palawan. Flights between the two destinations can be reserved through Air Juan partner agents in Boracay and Palawan.
With countless coves, lagoons, and endless beaches, the Philippines is an ideal place to travel by seaplane. Tourists can enjoy a unique and memorable experience flying directly to their favourite seaside resort or island directly from harbour to beach and without the hassle of airport security.
The Air Juan Cessna Grand Caravan EX Seaplane is equipped with the latest avionics, air conditioning, and 8 comfortable leather seats, which offer stunning views of the beautiful islands of the Philippines. The passenger windows on board the aircraft are designed specially for adventure and scenic flights.
