SkyJet will fly to Baler using its 79-seat British Aerospace BAe 146-100 aircraft which is compatible to operate in short and unpaved runways and is considered as the safest aircraft in the world. SkyJet's four-engine BAe 146 is built for safety and speed which allows lesser travel time.

Sabang Beach, which is famous because of its so-called "killer waves", is named after its location Barangay Sabang, Baler. Waves are relatively calm in the month of March to June, which provides good beachfront for swimmers. During October to February, large waves come to meet the surfers.
