seair - Coron to Busuanga

we have booked online a SEAIR flight from Coron to Puerto and received e-ticket by e-mail; however, when we checked again the SEAIR website, it doesn't show flights to Puerto Princesa from Coron. It shows Boracay flights only.

Does any one know if the flights to PP from Coron have been canceled? SEAIR does not respond to e-mails.

Any similar experiences with SEAIR?

I was able to call SEAIR from Canada and got info that indeed our flight was cancelled and that we're getting credited for the airfare charged and that we'll be receiving an e-mail to this effect.

We now have to make alternative plans.

Do we take the 8 hr boat ride or do we take 12 hr Superferry from Coron to PP then the 6 hr share-ride in a van to EN.

I'm trying to convince myself that the 8 hr pumpboat ride will be interesting just the same, enjoy the scenery. Just bring enough gravol for the boat trip.

Hi, I'm looking into getting from Coron to Puerto Princesa myself. What did you end up doing? No other companies that fly between Coron and PP? Cheers!

Coron to Puerto flights via SEAIR CANCELLEÐ until further notice. Had to change booking Manila to Puerto and SKIP Coron. I incurred penalty for changing my booking + pay the difference in air fare. Still I thought this was better than taking the 11-hr rough-basic-facilities-expensive-pumpboat ride or the once-a-week boat trip to El Nido.

There has been no SEAIR flight from Coron to Puerto Princesa ever since. I think their website has a glitch. The end destination along the route is El Nido. So, it's like Manila-Busuanga (Coron)-El Nido and vice versa.

However, there is Manila-Puerto Princesa route with no stop-over in Busuanga Airport.

I suggest that you push through with your Coron vacation and then go all the way to El Nido. El Nido is even better than Coron.

But if you are into adventure, why don't you try Busuanga (town) for experience. The place is very rural but have plenty of islands to visit. Last year, we were there for island hopping and visit to the wildlife park.

I suggest you take a flight to Coron (Busuanga), then take an 6-8 hour boat ride to EN, then boat ride to Sabang (Underground River) passing Port Barton on your way to Sabang "Underground River" and then from Sabang Beach, about 3 hrs. jeepney ride to PPCity, but of course, it all depends on how many days you have...

Hello and Mabuhay to all...

I am glad to inform all of you guys that thier will flight from Coron-PPC-Coron (Busuanga is.) soon, and as soon as I get all the details i'll post it here.

This is to those who can afford a flight cost from Coron (Busuanga) - Puerto Princessa City and to those who have a limited time to spare on their holidays, and I advice if you have limited number of days to spend. Just go for PPC or Coron the gateway to the Calamianes groups of islands.... enjoy you holiday.

At present we have Superferry and Negros Navigation that travels Manila-Coron-PPC once a week, they safe.

And we have the M/B Overcomer and M/B Jessabel that travels Coron to El Nido twice a week.

Hi there...

It would be wise to take a Superferry or Negros Navigation from Coron (Busuanga) to Puerto Princesa, then go to Sabang (underground river) from PPC, not unless you want to visit also El NIdo.
