Seaplane operator AirTrav rides on thriving PH tourism

"AirTrav Corp. launched scheduled flights from Manila to Clark International Airport and Puerto Galera, with plans to expand to Visayas within the year."

"Imagine how many hours you can save for swimming (and eating at their famous pizza place) if you can get there as soon as possible. AirTrav, a Filipino company that operates air charter services, lets you fly from Manila to Puerto Galera for just 40 minutes."

"Privately owned commercial aviation company AirTrav Corp. is spending $6 million (P320 million) to further expand its recently introduced scheduled seaplane services out of Manila’s docks."
"Aside from fleet expansion, the company also plans to expand its destinations to Visayas within the year and to Mindanao by next year.
"Seaplanes are built for a number of things — access to remote areas, water rescues, etc. — but AirTrav highlights convenience and safety above all, which are what the aviation company provides best."

"This year, AirTrav Philippines Inc., has expanded its business to transport more people directly to their Philippine destinations with the acquisition of the new Cessna Grand Caravan Ex Amphibian."
"Traveling in the Philippines is no longer a pain in the ass with Airtrav. Recently, this Filipino-operated airline company spreads its wings to take Philippine travel to the next level. Honestly, why didn't anyone think of this sooner? The Philippine tourism would totally benefit from seaplanes. Why, we have more water than land! And with Airtrav, we can simply land on water.
