The Civil Aviation Authority of the Philippines (CAAP) said Monday that the Puerto Princesa City International Airport (PPCIA) is prepared and ready to welcome the arrival of the maiden flight of Royal Air from Clark International Airport (CIA) in Pampanga.
CAAP chief Percy Malonesio said they expect Royal Air’s inaugural flight to arrive around 12:30 noon from CIA.
“Ready na ready ang airport natin na i-welcome ang maiden flight. Handa naman lahat ng facilities natin,” Malonesio said in an interview with Palawan News.
At the CIA in Pampanga, Royal Air opened its flight services to Puerto Princesa City with Bea Tan, its brand ambassador.
Royal Air Charter Service Inc. (RACSI), a country-registered air carrier, announced in November last year that it will start daily flights to Caticlan, Cebu, Tagbilaran, San Vicente, and Puerto Princesa City from the CIA in Pampanga this month.
Michie Meneses, City Tourism Office’s (CTO) promotion and marketing division chief, said earlier that 97 domestic tourists will be on Royal Air’s maiden flight No. RW868.
She said flights will be every Monday, Wednesday, Friday, and Sunday.
