Siargao Island is the surfing money of the Philippines. Through surf time Siargao is a surfer’s paradise with waves averaging 7ft. Property of “Cloud 9” surf beach, which is ranked prime 8 best surf spots in the planet by CNN Go, it is a single of Asia’s very best held secrets.
Siargao has large, superior quality and reliable waves 8 months a yr (from Oct right up until May well). The most reliable waves coming from the north-jap swell setting up from November right up until March exactly where the swell can common all around 7ft.

The new flights by Skyjet will be welcomed by surfers arriving in Manila’s International Airport. Skyjet operates at the NAIA-4 Domestic Terminal. The flight M8-421 leaves Manila (MNL) at 06:00 a.m. and arrives in Surigao (IAO) at 07:40 a.m. The return flight leaves M8-422 leaves Surigao at 08:10 a.m. and comes in Manila at 09:50 a.m. There is at present a promo obtainable for PHP 3,277 for each way! We checked the flights for February 24 to Siargao and February 27 again to Manila. The common ticket rates are a lot better: PHP 6,854++ from Manila to Siargao and PHP 5,425++ from Siargao to Manila. We do not like the ++. As predicted, you have to include some charges and taxes. Why just can’t they publish “ALL IN” fares? Equally flights collectively, all taxes and fees included in fact value PHP 14,119.00!
Another believed: The only aircraft of the company, a “Jumbolino” BAE-146 sequence 100, RP-C5525, is an outdated-timer. It did its very first flight on 07. Feb 1985, 32 yrs in the past. It flew for 8 airlines with immatriculations N353PS, N173US, G-OWLD, EI-CNQ, N66LN and now RP-C5525. These an outdated chicken wants a large amount of routine maintenance. Looking at the flight network of Skyjet, a single may count on at least 1 to 2 days for each thirty day period “off-duty” for inspections and checks. Skyjet has only this lonely just one aircraft, even though cancelled flights will have to be envisioned.
