The Bohol Bloggers Collective will join members of print and broadcast media for a Press Conference and Welcome Lunch for the Philippine Airline’s inaugural flight of Tagbilaran-Incheon/Incheon-Tagbilaran. The event will take place at 10:00 AM today, June 23, 2017, at the Amorita Resort in Panglao, Bohol.
PR2482’s first flight to Incheon was on June 22, 2017, departed Tagbilaran at 5:20 PM and arrived in South Korea three and a half hours later. The return flight left Incheon at 2:30 AM and back in Tagbilaran at 6:00 AM today.
With PAL’s new route, Tagbilaran has become the fifth city to provide international flights. Other gateways for foreign travelers are Manila, Cebu, Clark, and Kalibo. The new service will provide foreigners with the fastest link to the attractions of Bohol and nearby Visayan cities. It also provides service to Korean travelers, the country’s largest tourist arrivals, direct access to Bohol.
Another milestone is PAL’s Cebu-Tagbilaran route which will be the first domestic link outside of Manila. PAL will operate the daily Tagbilaran to Cebu flights at 7:00 AM, arriving in Cebu at 7:30 Am via PR 2874. The Same aircraft will leave Cebu at 3:30 PM and touches down in Tagbilaran at 4:00 PM.
