Skyjet Airlines to fly direct to Camiguin starting in May 2019

SHOULD be more fun on Camiguin Island, Northern Mindanao.

It’s fun already, but it should be soon. It’s because Skyjet Airlines, Manila’s first boutique carrier, will be flying direct to the Region 10 tourism draw starting in May this year.

Imagine that for over three decades there was no direct flight to the island province that is situated in the Bohol Sea, around 10 kilometers (6.2 miles) off Mindanao’s northern tip.

Skyjet’s new route will be the first in more than 30 years.

In an email sent to SDN — Science and Digital News it was learned that the airlines has already been ferrying passengers from Manila bound for Siargao Island, Surigao del Norte; Batanes, the northernmost part of the Philippines; and Coron, Palawan, and back.

And now, to Camiguin Island and back. Camiguin, a pear-shaped volcanic island, is also known as the “Lanzones Capital of the Philippines” and, thus, appropriately celebrates the Lanzones Festival every third week of October.

The airlines’ Camiguin destination starting May will be daily flights except Tuesdays and Wednesdays. Skyjet will make it complete daily flights come October.

Skyjet’s flight offerings will provide foreign and local tourists “the fastest way to travel to Camiguin with air travel time of one hour and 15 minutes.”

With the coming flights in three months time more visitors will be able to experience Camiguin’s wonders, its beautiful beaches (White Island and Mantigue Island), rich marine life, refreshing waterfalls (Tuasan and Katibawasab Falls), hot and cold springs (Mount Hibok Hibok Ardent Hot Spring and Sto. Niño Cold Spring), and rich-flavored food and delicacies.”

Skyjet has timed its inaugural flights to the island to coincide with Camiguin’s “Fiesta Festival” where every day in May there will be a fiesta celebration.

Its Lanzones Festival, meanwhile, will be observe on October 16-22.

That’s not quite enough an attraction yet. Camiguin is endowed with number of excellent diving spots, which are accessible to both scuba divers and free divers, the likes of the Underwater Cemetery and Giant Clam Sanctuary.

Still more are the island’s stunning underwater visibility and diverse dive offerings, the focal point of the Camiguin Dive Festival and Underwater Photography Contest conducted every third quarter of the year.

Hello, Cyber World! A journalist's passion for news, which for me is every and any kind of news, but specially on Science, Technology, Innovation, Digital, and Current News, or just about anything under Heaven, birthed this news platform. Disclosure: I am not a scientist nor an expert on anything Science, and not a techie either; just some journalist who loves and care to bring the good news and share them to everyone out there. It is a big, big physical world out there, but the Industrial Revolution 4.0, the Internet in the Digital Age, has shrunk Earth into one small virtual community. Each human being a "neighbor" to everyone in the Philippines and in any point of the compass. Whatever you may see or think could be my and this site's shortcoming, my apologies. So, there, please join me in my journey in cyberspace! Be home, be safe, be mindful of your neighbors, of the Creator! Thanks so much.
