Seair has flights from Zamboanga-Jolo-Tawitawi but you have to check the website for updates
Flight time is a little over an hour (this could be due to stopover in Jolo.

There's a small airport in Bongao, Tawi-tawi and is serviced by a small plane when coming from Zamboanga City in mainland Mindanao. Seair, the airline, flies an 18-seater twin-prop airplane for their daily flights. Low-flying, the airplane gives the passengers an awesome view up above of never-ending string of islands rimmed with corals and white sandy shores during the one-hour flight.
Leave out the nervous and scary feeling when the plane gets to go through the clouds and rain when the weather is incooperative. I should know cause I've been there >> the smallest plane I ever took, and the worst flying experience for me in my whole life.Related to:
