Now you have another option.

(SPOT.ph) It's not always easy to travel around the Philippines, especially because some trips tend to be inaccessible in some parts of the Metro. In most cases, people from the provinces would have to make a trip to Manila just to catch a flight or a bus heading to their actual destination. Here's some good news for travelers from the north: Local flights to Basco, Batanes from San Fernando, La Union will be available in 2020!

According to a report by ABS-CBN, the Association of Tourism Industries and Network and the Leading Edge International Aviation Corporation are set to hold a test flight of the San Fernando-Basco trip on May 3.

Once operational, each trip is expected to take 45 minutes to one hour. Flights are at P18,888, and already inclusive of meals, tour guides, accommodation, and arrangements for land transfer.

"We are monitored by the CAAP (Civil Aviation Authority of the Philippines)," Leading Edge International Aviation Corporation (LEIASCOR) marketing manager Allan Ballesteros was quoted in the report. He also said that they already applied for the necessary permit that covers safety and security.
