PAL flights to and from Iligan soonest

Good news to travelers from Iligan City and nearby Mindanao areas, especially west of the city! Starting September 27, 2008 (tentative), Philippine Airlines (PAL) will operate the Manila-Iligan and Cebu-Iligan routes under low-cost brand PAL Express via the Baloi Airport.

The Manila-Iligan route would fly up to four times a week, while the Cebu-Iligan route three times. Currently, going to and coming from Iligan, travelers must pass by Cagayan de Oro. Land trip between these two places is about two hours and a half.

We have a branch in Pagadian City; and, once in a blue moon, I go there via Cagayan de Oro City. With the Iligan flights, it would cut my land travel by about two hours and a half. Cagayan de Oro City to Pagadian City is about 6 hours by land.

is that true?well it's a big relief to iliganon travellers,i once wrote an e-mail to PAL Express,suggesting them to fly to iligan,because it's really a sacrifice when you have to go to another city when you travel to MNL.im glad my e-mail has paid off.
