Puerto Princesa tourism players offer affordable travel rate for BIMP tourists PDF Print E-mail
PUERTO PRINCESA CITY, Dec. 10 (PNA) -- Tourism stakeholders in this city and Palawan are offering affordable travel package rate for passengers and tourists traveling Puerto Princesa-Kota Kinabalu air route in an effort to sustain and enhance tourism industry in both areas.

City Tourism Council (CTC) president Felisa Torres said that the Association of Travel and Tour Operators of Puerto Princesa-Palawan (ATOPP) agreed to provide a "big discount" in its tour package for passengers and tourists of Southeast Asian Airlines (SeAir) plying the said air route.

In its published ATOPP travel package for Kota Kinabalu, a tourist will only pay as low as Php13,500 (bed, breakfast and tours) and Php15,000 (bed, full board meals and tours).

Torres said the package includes round trip SeAir airfare, three nights room accommodation at Pension House and Inn of choice, airport transfers, three package tours (city tour, world renowned Underground River with launch, Honda Bay Island Hopping with launch) and airport check-in facilitation on the flight back to Kota Kinabalu).

The round trip SeAir airfare is only Php5,900, she said.

Torres said the Sabah Tourism Board, which hosted the ATOPP members during its familiarization tour in Malaysia last Nov. 25, was elated with their tour package rate.

She has proposed to the members of Sabah Tourism Board to have the same rate like ATOPP.

Torres is optimistic that SeAir, which flies temporarily to Kota Kinabalu once a week (every Friday), will prosper and boost the local economy.

"We are very grateful with the opening of Puerto Princesa-Kota Kinabalu air route, and any opening of flights or even sea route is a welcome development to help improve our local economy", Torres said.

She also expressed thanks to SeAir initiatives to bring passengers and tourists coming from Brunei-Indonesia-Malaysia-Philippines-East Asia Growth Area (BIMP-EAGA) market. (PNA)
