Sky Pasada launches Laoag-Basco route


Regional carrier Sky Pasada inaugurated its seventh station at Laoag International Airport today, marking a significant expansion of its services in Northern Luzon.

The airline celebrated the reopening of the Laoag-Basco route with a ceremony attended by local officials, including Atty. Nikki Pillar and Area 1 CAAP Manager Ronald Estabillo.

Sky Pasada’s Laoag hub will serve as a gateway to several destinations, with flights to Basco, Batanes operating every Monday, Wednesday, and Friday.

The airline also plans to launch routes connecting Laoag to Calayan in Cagayan and Baguio City via Binalonan, Pangasinan.

The inaugural flight from Basco landed at Laoag International Airport on Saturday, carrying 13 passengers. The return flight saw nine passengers board, demonstrating the growing demand for interconnectivity within the region.

This expansion aligns with Sky Pasada’s commitment to providing accessible and convenient air travel options to underserved communities in Northern Luzon.

Known as the “jeepney in the sky,” the airline utilizes a fleet of Let L-410 Turbolet UVP, Cessna Grand Caravan EX, and GippsAero GA8 Airvan aircraft well-suited for servicing smaller airports and airstrips.

“Sky Pasada continues to soar to new heights, connecting more destinations and communities across the region,” the airline stated in a Facebook post.

With its expanding network, Sky Pasada plays a crucial role in boosting tourism and economic activity in Northern Luzon. By providing reliable air travel options, the airline contributes to the development of remote areas and promotes greater accessibility to the region’s unique destinations.
