SilkAir has launched flights to Kalibo, the gateway to the Philippine resort island of Boracay.
The inaugural service departed Singapore Changi Airport on Tuesday morning, and flights will now operate three times a week, every Thursday, Thursday and Sunday. The Thursday service will operate via Cebu.
“The launch of these direct flights to Kalibo highlights our commitment to the Philippine market,” said SilkAir’s chief executive, Leslie Thng.
“We’re excited to be connecting our customers to more destinations in the Philippines and are confident that they will be delighted with the ease in which they can now visit yet another unique destination in the region with SilkAir.”
Kalibo will be SilkAir’s third destination in the Philippines after Cebu and Davao, increasing the number of destinations in SilkAir’s route network to 46 in 12 countries.
The new route will be operated using a mix of Airbus A319 and A320 aircraft.
