With various airlines offering travel promotions, there is no reason to complain about cost. While some travelers have observed some routes are less costly than others, it suggests investors are reducing prices as a means of selling on volume. Consumers should not hate airlines that have invested in making travel comfortable and safe.
The prospect of a third carrier at Bacolod-Silay Airport is more than welcome. However, does the volume of passengers in Negros Occidental warrant for a third airline? The airlines know best and no amount of political influence can push an airline to operate a route that would lose them money.
Cebu Pacific Air opened international travel from Iloilo International Airport seven years ago. Such an effort shows the company saw potential from Panay rather than Negros. Although, Negrenses should not feel bas since Iloilo is only an hour away.
Meanwhile, many Negrenses have not experienced travel to Davao City and Cagayan de Oro City—such destinations are available for Negrenses.
