    Cheap Flight: Book Ahead

    by michelle.jaguimit Updated Jul 20, 2010

    One of my friends arrange the travel for us. Although I am a travel agent in the group, and that should be my duty, I let them do the honor. Our flight is with SEAIR which will flies straight to Caticlan Airport with a fare of 1940php -roundtrip, booked on March 13, 2010. That is 4 months prior to the schedule departure date on July 10, 2010. 12 confimred passenger's but only 8 showed up at the airport.
    Buy or Bring a snack before you go to the airport as the cost of food inside is way too high.
    Packed Lunch: One ULAM and plain rice cost 165php, convert to fried rice cost 167php.
    Pringles: 165php (wow!)
    Anticipate a delay on your flight schedule. SEAIR provided a pack lunch which we named as "delayed food" and a bottle of water.
    We have this complimentary shuttle ride with SEAIR going to Jetty Port.

    75php terminal and boat fee -Jetty Port to Boracay Island
    100php/4 pax Tricycle to D'Mall

    A personnel from Tan's Guesthouse meet us at the D'Mall to carry our luggages and lead us to the place we are going to stay.

    Sea Air

    Sea Air

    Well during my first time to Boracay I prefer ease and convinience so I did choose Sea Air as the airline since its the only airline that flies directly to Caticlan when we are there. Just before it was around 1800 pesos one way but you need to book in advance to get a cheaper price and good time of flight of your choice, but now I think the price have increased already and I am now searching for other alternative airline or even RORO maybe for a change :)

    Tryc

    by shomalabanan Written Jun 3, 2010

    If you are riding a special tryc in boracay, it would cost you 50 Pesos. But if you wait along the road and ride along with others, it would cost you 10 Pesos only, this is a good deal for those who are travelling less than 4 persons.

    Boracay Port To Your Hotel

    by cyndymc Written May 22, 2010

    2.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    When you get off from the motorboat, you have to get a tricycle to go to your hotel/resort. Regular tricycle fare is P20/pax if you get a tricycle that is plying the road; if you get one from the line, charter rate is P100 (for 1 trike, not per person) for local tourists and P150 for foreign tourists. Some drivers will attempt to charge local tourists P150. Luckily, we've been forewarned by my daughter's officemates that we shouldn't pay more than P100.

    Seair to Caticlan to final distination Boracay

    by bituin56 Written Mar 21, 2010

    Seair is among the current few airlines that service the route MNL to Caticlan and back. Caticlan is the airport one would prefer to land in and take off from when traveling to Boracay Island. It is the closest airport and when one books a limited travel package (say of of 3D/2N), one would prefer to get most of that daylight time from the 3Day package. You get the picture.
    A very recent experience traveling via Seair is the BEST ad it's competitiors: PAL Express, Cebu Pacific and even the newcomer, ZestAir could get for free. Long and short of it: no heads up on flight delay, flight re-route or cancellation info is not given until one actually comes up to the counter to inquire. A flat tire situation took over half of practical daylight time to correct, Seaair claims the flat tire was not their fault. Perhaps, but the situation created a domino effect that stretched beyond imagination. Tourists who had babies in tow sat it out inside a Seair plane for about an hour WITHOUT any offer from the stewardess for bottled water, any beverage; when asked, stewardess said no (just like in Little Britain sitcom. if it weren't for the frustraton already at boiling point, it would have illicited a chuckle from me); visitors who had a very small window to squeeze in this vacation, time-wise and finding out a chunk of their vacation is gone and Seair apologizing "for not exceeding expectations."
    I rest my case......

    SEA AIR (budget airline)

    the LET Turbo propr 21 seater
    4 more images

    at present, only two airlines fly straight to caticlan airport, Sea Air and Zest Air due to the very short runway of the airport (but they use small turbo prop planes!). South East Asian Airlines was set up by Iren Dornier, Nikos Gitsis & Tomas Lopez in 1994 to provide safe, reliable, and economical air transportation for travelers in the Philippines. SEA Air is the embodiment of a no frills airline that there is not even a cabin attendant! but the price is cheap that a one way trip to or from caticlan via manila is just 1,500 pesos pre booked in 1 month!

    Seair has 11 aircrafts: 7 are 19-seater Let 410 and 4 Dornier 328 (32 passengers).

    Tickets right away available at all Filipino Travel Centers.

    Domestic Routes:
    Luzon: Clark (Angeles City), Manila, Basco
    Visayas: Busuanga, Caticlan, Borongan, Tablas, Puerto Princesa
    Mindanao: Zamboanga, Jolo, Tawi Tawi

    Baggage Allowance:
    10 kgs + 10 kgs more baggage for passengers with a valid onward international ticket for the same day.
    Free hand carry luggage (per adult): 1 piece max. 7 kg

    mini asian utility vehicles that ferry passengers and cargoes from the cagban boat jetty to the various destinations in boracay like hotels, stores, beaches and others. it competes with the tricycles and the pedicab bicycles as a means of transport here in the boracay area. these multicabs can be rented as on a daily basis too with prices ranging from 2,500 pesos a day to tour you around the boracay area. since the island is small, these multicabs are the king of the road here in boracay.

    Cebu Pacific Air is the No. 1 Low Budget Carrier in the Philippines (in domestic travel but in international travel, Philippine Airlines is still the Number 1 and i still prefer Philippine Airlines). The airline is a wholly-owned subsidiary of JG Summit Holdings, controlled by the Gokongwei family - one of the richest Filipino-Chinese families based in the Philippines. Cebu Pacific is currently headed by Lance Gokongwei, it's CEO. Cebu Pacific has the largest domestic destinations and it flies BOTH to Kalibo and Caticlan Airports (Airbus A 319 on Kalibo and ATR-72 Turbo Prop Plane in Caticlan). Fares are cheaper is you buy 3 weeks in advance (usually about 5,000 pesos including all sucharges).

    their Main Office is in:

    Airline Operations Center Building
    Manila Domestic Airport Complex
    Old Domestic Road
    Pasay City
    Philippines 1301

    Kalibo Airport

    recent return trip
    3 more images

    Kalibo airport is not the main airport in Going to Boracay (the smaller caticlan airport is just 10 minutes away by boat to boracay but it only accomodates propeller driven planes but there are plans for expansion to accomodate international flights) but it is here that the jet planes land (like the boeing 737 and Airbus 319) of Philippine Airlines and Cebu Pacific. Although Kalibo Airport is a domestic airport, it is the only domestic airport in the Philippines that serves international flights since foreign chartered flights lands here everyday loaded with foreign tourist going to boracay. Kalibo Airport is a small airport and is about a 2 hour drive away from Boracay hence if you are not afraid of propeller planes, I would suggest that you take the propeller service that lands in Caticlan Airport.

    BOOK FOR MORNING FLIGHTS TO BORACAY

    by usisero_ako Written Jul 21, 2009

    3.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    If you are planning to go to Boracay, I suggest that you book a morning flight to Caticlan because most domestic flights (PAL, Cebu Pac, Zest Air, Sea Air) redirected all their flights to Caticlan via Kalibo airport. This was because of the recent tragedy happened to a Zest Air plane wherein the plane ran off the runway and into the dirt. Luckily, no one was hurt. The runway in Caticlan is very short to the point that upon the plane's landing, the pilot needs to hit the break right away to avoid crashing the plane to the hillside. The airlines companies decided to reroute the planes to Kalibo airport. The only problem with the plane landing in kalibo airport is that, after you land in Kalibo, you have to take a shuttle to Caticlan and the travel time is a excruciating 1.5-2 hours!!

    So I suggest that you book your flight early in the morning so that you will arrive in Caticlan and eventually in Boracay around noontime or early in the afternoon so your day will not be wasted and you could still enjoy the beach and the sun after arrival or after a short rest upon checking in to your hotel.

    Caticlan Airport
    4 more images

    Caticlan Airport serves Boracay island although it is actually on Malay island. Boracay is too small to support an airport and Caticlan is a mere 2 km from the port on Boracay. Caticlans airport, as seen from the specifications below, is a very small airport. They only have 2 gates and baggage is moved from where it is checked in, out the back of the building to the tarmac and the awaiting planes.

    As the planes servicing this airport are smaller turboprop planes, weight is an important factor. Carry on bags and passengers are all weighed to allow proper balancing and loading of the craft. (so if you're concerned about people knowing your weight, skip dessert before boarding the plane!)

    Lat/Long: 11.924503 N / 121.954050 E
    Elevation: 7 feet (2 meters)
    Max Runway: 3117 x 98 feet (950 x 30 meters)
    Surface: CONCRETE

    The sequence of pictures below show an airplane coming into Caticlan airport from the area of the White Beach on Boracay Island. Yep, the airport is very close to your destination! The jettyport to take a boat to Boracay from Caticlan is probably only 10 minutes or so away on foot and definitely an inexpensive trike ride away.

    if you dont have a direct flight to caticlan island, you may go to ILOILO city and then from there go to TABAK its a barangay you can get there through jeepney and it only cost P20.00 or less. from Tabak take a CERES bus and it cost roughly P300.00 to get to CATICLAN island. in caticlan you will pay these fees (subject to change):

    terminal fee in Caticlan port 125.00

    ..when you get to Bora to get a cheap place i recommend PIZZA DA BUFFADO its in station3 and it only cost P800.00 (2pax)
    FYI:
    ceres bus line in Caticlan leaves at exactly 5:30 am and the last trip is 4:30pm daily
    (get there 30 mins. before the departure time to catch em or else you'll get left out)
