Famous for its vast rolling hills and craggy cliffs, enjoy an idyllic vacation in the beautiful province of Batanes. This picturesque destination near Taiwan consists of three major, inhabited islands – Batan, Sabtang, and Itbayat. Considered as the “Paradise of the North,” many people are drawn to Batanes to experience not just its magnificent sceneries but also its cool weather and meeting with friendly locals.
How to get there
Located in the northernmost part of the Philippines, it takes about one hour and twenty minutes to fly from Manila to Batanes. Basco Airport is found on Batan Island. Typically, airlines only have one scheduled flight to Batanes.
I choose to fly SkyJet because they have the fastest flights to Siargao. Another important thing to me when I fly is my comfort. SkyJet’s aircraft has very big legroom. I can seat back, relax at their plane’s very comfy seats.
It’s my second time to fly to Siargao with SkyJet and I like that it’s super convenient. Their flights to Siargao are direct flight [from Manila]. I can relax while flying because of its spacious legroom—handy since I always sleep during flights—and the temperature onbaord’s cool. I plan to go to Coron and Boracay, especially Coron, which I haven’t fully explored, and in those trips I’d still take SkyJet.
It was my first time to fly SkyJet and it was a very very good experience. I was completely blown away. [The flight] was very comfortable; the staff were very accommodating. I hope SkyJet gets to have more flights. I did not have even a second of regret I flew SkyJet. In my next plans—if I go to Boracay or Surigao—it’s a given that SkyJet’s my top-of-mind airline.
