Philippine Airlines launches Zamboanga to Cagayan de Oro direct flights

Now this is definitely good news especially for Mindanao tourism and Mindanao trade 🙂 According to this article, Philippine Airlines will start offering Cagayan de Oro – Zamboanga direct flights starting April 1, 2011. So, instead of enduring 10 hours of land travel, passengers may now only have to endure an hour-long flight. PAL has yet to give more details about the upcoming Zamboanga – CdO flights but I must say, this piece of development is exciting! More possibilities for tourism, business deals!

Domingo T. Duerme, PAL vice president for Mindanao, also said that PAL will take over Air Philippines Express’ Davao – Zamboanga and Davao – Cagayan de Oro routes. He did not state the reason for PAL’s takeover of the two routes, though.

The upcoming PAL Zamboanga to Cagayan de Oro City and vice versa routes will use the 80-seater Q400 aircraft. Something similar to this one below (this was the plane I rode during a CdO to Cebu flight aboard Air Philippines Express / PAL Express):

Incidentally, this blogger from Mindanao rode a Bombardier Q400 turboprop.
