Eastar Jet to open route to Philippine island of Palawan

14:56 October 18, 2018

SEOUL, Oct. 18 (Yonhap) -- Eastar Jet Co., a South Korean low-cost carrier, said Thursday it will open a route to the Philippine island of Palawan later this month in its latest move to expand its service in the region.

The budget airline said its inaugural flight to Palawan is set to depart from Incheon, South Korea's main gateway located west of Seoul, at 8 p.m. on Oct. 28.

The carrier said it will offer daily flights with the 189-seat B737-800 passenger jet.

Palawan became famous after appearing in such Hollywood blockbusters as "The Bourne Legacy." Palawan's underground river has made it onto the UNESCO World Heritage List.

The latest move raised the number of Asian Pacific routes operated by Eastar Jet to 30 foreign destinations, including Hong Kong, Tokyo and Bangkok.
