Coron, Busuanga via the Skyjet Experience

Last March 18, 2013, I was able to experience the JET experience going to Coron, Busuanga in Palawan.

SkyJet Air owned by Magnum Air flies to Coron, Busuanga 3 times a week and vice versa.

The runway in Coron is a bit small, and Skyjet is the only airlines with Jet Aircraft that can land in Coron.
