Flag carrier Philippine Airlines (PAL) expressed its willingness to open flights travelling to and from Baguio City.

Socioeconomic Planning Secretary Ernesto M. Pernia said PAL is willing to open it flights to the country’s summer capital once the Loakan Airport reopens and the Civil Aviation Authority of the Philippines (CAAP) approves of the additional flights, reported Inquirer.

Previously, PAL held operations at the Loakan Airport. However, the airport has not served a major airline since the 1990s.

According to Pernia, CAAP reported during a meeting that the airport “needs improvements for safety purposes”.

Pernia added that once the modernization project is completed, the airport would be able to accomodate more flights.

Travel time will be cut to approximately 45 minutes

According to travel time calculator website Travel Math, flight time from Manila to Baguio is approximately 45 minutes.

The website, however, clarified that the estimated flight time is under the assumption that the airline company flies at a speed of 500 mph or 805 km/h (kilometers per hour). The estimated time does not include take-off and landing time as well.

Currently, travel time from Manila to Baguio by land ranges from four to seven hours, depending on the type of vehicle used and the traffic situation.
