Lakawon Island in Negros via Air Juan Seaplane

Recommended Posts

Air Juan, Cebu's first seaplane airline, is almost ready for operation. All we're waiting for is the terminal to finish construction in the SRP.

The first route will be from the SRP directly to Lakawon Island in Negros. Malapascua will likely be the second.

Cebu is in the center of the Philippines; even before Magellan arrived in Cebu was recognized as the ideal hub for trade.

Promoting Cebu as an access point for other parts of the country will boost our international and domestic tourism greatly; we have almost 10 direct flights every day from Korea alone; if potential tourists realize that you can fly directly from Cebu to the very beach of the resort you're staying in, many more will come. Europeans, who typically take longer holidays, can be particularly marketed to for this.


There are only two major points of entry into the Philippines: Cebu and Manila. If we can show that coming through Cebu is easier and more attractive, we benefit even from the tourists who just pass though, and in many cases we benefit even more because many do decide to spend a few days here.

It also encourages development in the countryside; you cannot force a businessman to build in the middle of nowhere; you must show him that there's a market for it and that it's the right decision to make. This will decongest our urban centers, encourage development outside, and boost our economy with the infusion of foreign currency. 

Fare prices are projected to be just a little over the prices of other airlines. Small planes are usually more expensive per seat than regular commercial jets, but to keep prices down, the airline will be partially subsidized by the resorts a seaplane provides direct access to. This increases the number of customers coming to the resort, keeps ticket prices manageable, and makes travel more faster and more convenient for those who only have so much time to take a vacation. Everyone wins.

Coming soon in the SRP

yes, but that was a small island hopper from CEB airport, this looks like a sea plane departing from somewhere off of the SRP.

It's actually not that great of a place, IMO. On the beach is a party zone, with a dozen of huts, etc. Very noisy. Mostly Filipino uppity clientele at the resto, and overprice Filipino food.

A seaplane port for CEBU is perfect.    10 years ago i was playing around with Flightsim "flying" the caravan amphib from CEBU to different parts of the Visayays..  This Will work!     The amphib can take transition pax from mactan intl Airport MCIA  to private hard to get to resorts in minutes..   When you have only 2 days vacation.. You will pay to avoid lengthy overland transpo  times.    ie  say you land at Mactan from Hong Kong (for example).. Clear immigration.. walk over to domestic.. catch the  Amphibian caravan to  Malapascua Island .. 20 Minutes later you land  at Malapascua .. and you are in your private cabana ..with a welcome drink ..getting ready for your Morning Dive.  ///   As opposed to Arriving.. Mactan.. Driving 3 to 4 hours depending on TRAFFIC .. then taking a banca 30 to 45 minutes.. arriving  worn out.    maybe getting in only one dive ..     ITS ABOUT TIME.  super excited for this development.   Go Juan Air.
