Skip the long 5-6 hours of travel from Puerto Princesa to El Nido when you can fly directly from either Manila, Clark, Cebu and Caticlan via AirSwift. The Philippine’s only boutique airline offering daily roundtrip to and from El Nido,AirSwift is committed to provide you with a world-class travel experience.
Last November, the president declared a special non-working holiday from November 13 – 15 due to the ASEAN summit. And since we didn’t expect to have this long vacation off work, we had nothing prepared. We should’ve booked a flight to somewhere. It was Saturday then when we decided to look for a promo flight to El Nido. Since we started traveling together, we’ve been waiting for the perfect chance to visit the Philippines’ pride when it comes to the best islands in the world. And we thought the chance we’ve been waiting for finally arrived. We’re lucky to have booked a roundtrip promo flight to/from El Nido for only Php 5,000+!
The regular fares usually range from Php 5,000 – 8,000 and that’s only a one-way trip. Luckily, we saw an ongoing promo coming from Manila and Clark. The roundtrip promo fare from Manila was around Php 7,000 (if I remember it right). The fare from Clark was cheaper for almost Php 2,000. So we decided to book a flight from Clark instead.
Now you’re wondering, do you actually save time coming from Clark? Well, honestly it depends. If you’re coming from Manila, it will take you 3-4 hours at most to travel to Clark Int’l Airport. That’s still a 2-3 hours of savings. Since we went on a holiday, it only took us a little more than an hour. So we saved almost 5 hours of land travel!

WHAT TO EXPECT FROM AIRSWIFT
- They’ll treat you with free snacks. First class flights mostly have free snacks onboard. However for economic and other promo flights, there are none unless you buy an add-on prior to your trip. With AirSwift, even though our flight was bought for a lesser price, we were still given with free snacks. They even have snacks in El Nido airport (Departure Area)! So I guess they treat all their passengers with free snacks regardless of what class you are in.
- You’ll walk in the red carpet as you board the plane. I’m not sure if other airlines do this to their customers because I haven’t noticed any since I started traveling. Or am I mistaken? With AirSwift, you’ll be treated like royalties!
- Speaking of treating their passengers like royalties, they even prepare umbrellas to keep you comfortable as you alight the plane and walk your way to the arrival area. That’s only a 1-minute walk! Can other airlines do that for you?
