    ARRIVING AT BUSUANGA AIRPORT

    When you arrive at the airport you will pass by many tourist agency counters as you leave the arrival hall. Shuttle vans are waiting in the car park to take you to different parts of the island for a fixed fare. Make sure that you get on a regular passenger shuttle that takes many people and not a private charter which will cost you too much. If you want to go to some of the more remote places you may have no option but to charter your own vehicle as there is no other transport at the airport.

    PHILIPPINE AIRLINES and CEBU PACIFIC to BUSUANGA

    the DHC-8-400
    3 more images

    The plane that flies to Busuanga from Manila is a DHC-8-400 which is a De Havilland Canada and has propellers which seemed to give us a bumpy landing. PAL has 2 flights a day form Manila leaving at 8.30 am and 14.40 pm.
    Cebu Pacific also has 3 flights and it seems to also use the DHC plane too, although it seemed to be a slightly different model
    Cebu Pacific fly from manila at 10.40, 13.20 and 16.50 but it may be best to check with the airlines as time schedules apt to change from time to time.

    CORON TO BUSUANGA AIRPORT

    by davidjo Written Jun 9, 2014

    2.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    Getting to Busuanga Airport is easy, just inform your hotel/GH when your flight leaves and they will order the shuttle van to pick you up at the appropriate time for 150 pesos per person. Make sure you don't charter a van as this will cost you a lot more. In Coron town i did not see a shuttle terminal where one can just turn up and find a shuttle van.

    BUSUNGA AIRPORT TO CORON TOWN

    shuttle van
    4 more images

    Shuttle vans will be waiting to transfer you to Coron as soon as your plane touches down, but make sure you get on the normal passenger van (150 pesos) and don't charter one which will cost you a lot more. The ride into town will take 30 minutes as it winds its way through the valley with hills on each side, often being delayed by cattle on the road. The driver will drop you off anywhere in town for no extra charge. Although the shuttle van can accommodate up to 15 people it will probably leave after the last passenger leaves the terminal. Our van only had 6 passengers.

    No frills airline

    Busuanga

    I booked online and flew to Busuanga using Air Phil Express. Major credit cards accepted. Not sure though if they accept credit cards issued outside of the Philippines.

    Departures and Arrivals serviced thru Terminal 3 infront of Marriott Hotel and ResortWorld Casino.

    No food on board. Not even ones for sale. It is such a short flight though.

    Serviced by Bombadier Q400 so expect smaller cabin space. Clean and new aircraft.

    Btw, PAL (PR) is managing Airphil Express.

    Busuanga, Coron or Puerto Princesa

    by iclee Written Sep 13, 2010

    A lot of people who travel to see the islands of Palawan make the mistake of booking Puerto Princesa (PPS) airport even if they are primarily going to El Nido, Busuanga (USU) or Coron.

    If you have no business going to Puerto Princesa, I suggest you fly direct to Busuanga. There are carriers servicing the MNL-USU route.

    Budget trip to Coron

    super ferry
    4 more images

    We decided to take the Supperferry going to Coron/Busuanga to cut on expenses. The ship leaves Manila every friday at 3:45pm and arrives at coron at 5am. It departs from Coron every Sunday at 10:45pm and arrives at Manila 12nn.

    Going to Coron, we were able to book a cabin room w/c can accomodate four persons. The room has its own TV and bathroom. The room is small but comfy. But for those who are claustrophobic, well.. there might be a little discomfort. The fare per person w/meal for the cabin is P2,223.20 one way.

    Coming home we were booked on the tourist area.. This iarea is composed of several divided spaces which you share with 6-10 people depending on where you are assigned. The bathroom is common, meaning you share it with everyone. The area is okay but not really that clean. Or maybe i was just unlucky to get assigned to the dirty bunk. The fare per person w/meal is P1,806.00.

    Just a little tip.. the tourist area is okay.. Just make sure you lock your bags to be on the safe side.. Because you have to leave your area to dine. Or maybe just take turns with your companions. It is better to book w/o meals because they sell food and you can better choose what you want to eat. Since we booked w/ food, we had no choice but to eat what was served.

    One hour plane ride via Seair

    by arni_ph075 Written Nov 17, 2005
    Seair Plane

    Seair is one of the most reputable airline in the country with good safety track record. Its the smallest plane Ive ever tried riding and a whole deal fun, as it flies low, you can have a great view of Palawan islands.. Amazing.

    It flies daily to Busuanga, 2 flights daily, (airport nearest to Coron, the commercial district of Busuanga). The airport is located in Yulo King Ranch, in the center of a cattle farm.

    The aircraft model being used on the Busuanga route is LET410.

    First flight to Busuanga is at 0710, and last flight going back to Manila is at 1715.

    Seair got a free shuttle from the airport to Coron town. If you dont have arranged transpo, better catch the shuttle, else you need to wait for the next flight arrival, as transportation is very limited on this airport, as its in the middle of a huge cattle farm.

    Flight to Boracay from Busuanga

    SEAIR flies two times week from Busuanga to Caticlan vice versa.

    Easiest, fastest and cheapest way to connect Palawan with Boracay.

    Since Palawan is composed of so many different islands and islets, boats are the most important transportation here.

    I prefer a private closed van because the road can be very dusty specially in summer. But the jeepney makes you feel more homely;)
