ALL flights of Philippine Airlines (PAL) to and from Bohol will now arrive and depart from the new Bohol Panglao International Airport, located in Barangay Tawala, Municipality of Panglao, after the national carrier transferred there last November 28.
The old Tagbilaran Airport, located in Tagbilaran City, is now closed.
This is in accordance with the official notification issued by the Civil Aviation Authority of the Philippines (CAAP).
The new Bohol Panglao International Airport will be the only commercial airport serving the province of Bohol, including the City of Tagbilaran and Panglao Island.
The PAL ticket office at the decommissioned Tagbilaran Airport will remain open until December 15, 2018 to serve passengers during a three-week transition period.
While the PAL ticket office at Panglao Airport is being set up, PAL check-in counters at the new airport will be able to issue tickets if necessary to all passengers.
There is no need to re-issue or re-route tickets, as all currently issued tickets for travel to or from Tagbilaran remain valid.
The new airport will not change and retain the same “TAG” three-letter airport code.
