Getting around by air

Palawan’s two main airports are Puerto Princesa International Airport, which serves all of mainland Palawan; and Busuanga Island's Franciso B Reyes Airport, which serves the Calamian Islands. Both airports are served by most of the major domestic carriers.

El Nido and the Bacuit Archipelago are served by the small, privately owned Lio Airport, which is used by just one airline, pricey Air Swift. Travellers heading this way tend to fly into Puerto Princesa and take a public van to El Nido instead. The newly opened San Vicente Airport could become a new hub for El Nido–bound travellers, but at this writing there were no commercial flights.

Lastly, Air Juan (www.airjuan.com) and its fleet of six-seat sea and land planes have been expanding into Palawan, connecting Busuanga and Puerto Princesa with popular tourist destinations like Caticlan (Boracay).
