  • LIST: Commercial Airlines in the Philippines
  • Air travel is something every person has to go through at least once, especially in an archipelago like the Philippines. Most people can get around by car, bus, boat, or RORO (short for roll-on, roll-off) for short trips; however, air travel is still your best bet if you want to get to, say, Boracay, Palawan, Cebu, and other cities that require more than a 12-hour ride.

    For those who want to get around by plane, here’s a list of commercial airlines in the Philippines:
