Cebu Pacific Flights to Caticlan Diverted to Kalibo Airport
Bad news for those already booked on a Cebu Pacific flight to Caticlan to get to Boracay Island. You will find yourself landing on Kalibo Airport where you need to board a van/bus to get to Caticlan jetty port.
This flight diversion is due to the suspension of all flights to and from Caticlan airport after the Civil Aviation Authority of the Philippines (CAAP) designated it as a one-way airport.
With a one-way airport designation of Caticlan airport, take-off would always be towards the sea. It also resulted in a shortened the runway after the technical re-designation.
No latest update or news on resumption of direct flights to Caticlan. Please try to call Cebu Pacific Hotline at (02)702-0888/(032) 230-8888 or visit the website www.cebupacificair.com for more details and updates on their flights.
My family and I were one of those people who were affected by this. :( On a lighter side, I was able to rebook our flight to a better schedule and Cebu Pac will also be providing free tranfers from Kalibo to Caticlan. :D
