Value Alliance members Jeju Air of Korea and Cebu Pacific Air of the Philippines began joint air service last month.

The first interline tickets went on sale in June. Korean travelers can now fly to Sydney, Australia via Manila in the Philippines. Interline tickets refer to a set of tickets that connects flight routes through partner carriers.

Jeju Air and Cebu Pacific are both members of Value Alliance consisting of eight major low-cost carriers in the Asia-Pacific region. These members include Nok Air and Nok Scoot of Thailand, Scoot of Singapore, Tiger Australia and Japan’s Vanilla Air. Jeju Air plans to sign partnerships with other members of the alliance so it can offer greater international service without having to expand its fleet.

Membership in the alliance was one of Jeju Air’s main strategies to survive in the increasingly crowded and cutthroat Korean LCC market. More low-cost carriers are jumping into the business, even as the six existing ones are competing for a limited pie of travelers in the country.

Bautista said.

Other Philippine cities with international PAL flights include Manila, Cebu, Clark and Kalibo.

The new service also provides Korean travelers – comprising the country’s largest tourist arrivals – direct access to Bohol’s unique attractions, from tarsiers to Chocolate Hills. Other lures of Tagbilaran are powdery-sand beaches, dive spots, heritage sites and old stone churches. The city has recently become a favorite venue for national conventions and conferences.

PAL will operate the daily Tagbilaran-Cebu flights via PR 2874, departing 7AM and arriving in the Queen City of the South  7:30 AM. The flight leaves Cebu at 3:30 PM and touches down in Tagbilaran by 4 PM. Tagbilaran, located at the southwestern tip of the island province of Bohol, is just 72 kilometers south of Cebu City. From Cebu, holiday seekers can connect to 12 domestic and six international destinations.

The new services will increase domestic connections of the Queen City of the South to 13 which already include the following: Cebu – Bacolod, Busuanga, Butuan, Cagayan, Caticlan, General Santos, Iloilo, Kalibo, Puerto Princesa, Surigao, and Tacloban.
