BAGUIO CITY – A new air route will boost tourism in Northern Luzon, Tourism official said.
In the Cordillera, Tourism regional director Marie Venus Q. Tan announced Tuesday the launch of the new air route that would make the Cordillera Administrative Region and other parts of Northern Luzon more accessible to foreign tourists.
“We will launch the Clark International Airport-Bagabag Airport in Nueva Vizcaya air route on May 17, expected to boost and ease the travel time of our foreign visitors who would like to immerse themselves first in the highland resorts of the Cordillera region,” Tan said.
Tan said most of the region’s foreign visitors are Europeans, mainly the French who topped the list of the foreign visitors in 2016 with 72,000.
“The number of foreign visitors this year is increasing, and the number of French arrivals is now being overcome by Israeli citizens, who travel first in the Cordillera for cultural immersion,” she disclosed.
The DOT director added that most of these European tourists maintain high positions of employment in the private and government sectors in their countries, and they will certainly boost the economy of the different tourism destinations in and around CAR.
