I hope the load factor would be good for their ATR-72. The former Seair tried their luck in this route but cannot sustain it.

Yes, we have to use it to keep it!

I feel that the service has a good chance of succeeding because of the backing by local governments of Palawan and Sabah. When the government and tourism representatives from Sabah arrived on the first flight the road from the airport was lined by school children waving Philippine and Malaysian flags. I don't think Seair ever got that sort of backing.

Just one complaint, on Dec 27 the fare from PPS to BKI is $40 plus Philippine Travel Tax of $37.10, the equivalent tax in the other direction is $8.50.
