Travel Republic Of The Philippines Beach Boracay

Following the news of a six month “full tourism closure” to Boracay in the Philippines, as of the 26 April of this year, Cebu Pacific has announced it will resume flight to and from Caticlan—the main hub servicing to the popular island retreat, effective October 26, 2018.

Cebu Pacific is the first airline to restart to its coverage to Boracay which was closed due to increasing concerns over the environmental impact of tourism on the island, which saw over 2 million local and foreign holiday makers in 2017.

The decision to close the island was a controversial move by the Filipino government with its knock-on effects impacting up to 17,000 workers in the hospitality sector, including hotels & resorts, restaurants and bars as well as tour operators and guides.

Despite this, the National Economic & Development Authority (NEDA) said the closure would have only a 0.1% impact on Gross Domestic Product (GDP) growth.

From October 26 to 27, Cebu Pacific will operate the following flights between Manila and Caticlan:
