If you think having direct flights to Incheon in South Korea is the end of Philippine Airlines’ participation in Bohol tourism, well you’re guess is wrong.
It seems the country’s premier flag carrier has another going for Bohol.
Gov. Edgar Chatto revealed PAL is looking at Bohol as a hub island for tourists to come here and use the province as a jump off point to other places.
“Because of our tourism attactiveness, once the Bohol airport opens, they will make Bohol a hub where they land here and bring tourists to other provinces, because we are centrally located as we are in the heart of the Philippine islands,” Chatto said.
As a measure, Chatto said the people of Bohol have a role to play in preserving peace and order to entice tourists to come here to the province.
All of the programs envisioned for Bohol and the growth of tourism will not flourish without peace and order, said the governor.
The goal is to bring down the poverty rate of the province from the present 21 percent to as much as 17 percent or lower, in line with the vision of the Duterte administration that there should be no poor in the country.
