Flag carrier Philippine Airlines (PAL) on Tuesday announced additional flights between Manila and Basco, Batanes, which will be scaled up to daily flights next month.
The airline will add flights between the two destinations every Sunday starting July 24, making the frequency four times a week, including those on Mondays, Wednesdays, and Fridays.
It will also increase the flights to seven weekly flights, covering daily morning departures from destinations starting August 2.
The departing flight will leave Manila at 6 a.m. and arrive in Basco at 7:45 a.m., while the returning flight will leave Basco at 8:15 a.m. and arrive in Manila at 10 a.m.
