By air: FIST TIME FOREIGN TRAVELLERS to BORACAY: if travelers come from Malaysia, Singapore and Thailand. My recommendation is fly Cebu pacific Air. The plane landed at the NIA International Airport is a gate away to the Philippine islands, the same Airport going to Caticlan-Boracay, or Kalibo just tells the Airline counter for connecting flights. This is the most convenience. No need to pick up your baggage at Manila Airport .just switch your plane for domestic flight next door going to caticlan. Cebu pacific has a several flights in Asia and it’s a budget carrier, offering a promotion flight if you book earlier. So be sure have enough extra time for departure domestic flight. Reminder for tourist has planned to visit boracay makes sure the plane landed at NIA AirPort. Or it depends on your point of origin. so be aware these two Airport in Panay VIA Caticlan and Kalibo, if foreign visitors fly via Kalibo Airport it takes 1hour and 30 minutes from manila international airport, then another 1 and 40 minute travelled by bus going to caticlan jetty port. Then another 12 minutes ride by pump boat, speed boat, or ferry boat going to Boracay Island. But most of this airline operate is Cebu pacific and Philippine airlines they both landing smoothly and the most reliable. So don’t worry.
