Puerto Galera
Agent and media tours to the PHL


The PTO Shanghai collaborates with partner agents and airlines to send various high-profile agent and media groups to the PHL this month, as part of their joint promotions for the peak summer travel.

Philippine Airlines (HKG Office) is leading a group of top-level representatives from key travel agencies and media companies in Shenzhen for coverage of Manila and Boracay on May 4-7.

Zest Air and Merry Travel are also hosting a group of major print and broadcast companies from Shanghai, Wenzhou, Ningbo, Nanjing and Hangzhou for coverage of Manila and Boracay on May 6-9. This is to support the regular scheduled flights from Shanghai to Kalibo which will be increased from 2x-weekly to 4x-weekly flights for the summer season.

Another PHL carrier, Cebu Pacific, is sending a select group of scuba diving clubs and operators from Shanghai for inspection tour of Bohol on May 28-June 1.

In the meantime, preparations are being finalized for the maiden flight of Air Philippines for its 2x-weekly scheduled flights from Guangzhou to Cebu this end of month. A familiarization tour group of media supporters will also be organized to support this new flight service.

Previous media coverage produced various feature stories on Cebu, Bohol, Palawan, and magazine cover stories on new PHL destinations such as Bicol Region on Elite Traveler Magazine (April issue) and Clark/Subic Cluster on New World Traveler (May Issue).
