Fly To Palawan with Sunlight Air's Travel Bubble Package

Monday, December 21, 2020

I recently received an offer to travel again, and witness the launch of Sunlight Air--the newest player in Philippine aviation and charter industry. Although I had to politely decline due to holiday commitments with the family on the day of flight, the chance to fly again sparked hope in my kaladkarin heart. Really hoping that 2021 will be brighter for us travel bugs, one step at a time perhaps?

What is Sunlight Air?

Sunlight Air is a boutique charter airline based in the Philippines. It was founded on July 22, 2019, supposed to launch March of this year. They are dedicated to revolutionize air travel by providing a new concept of “aviation service” and a seamless travel experience to domestic travelers at a competitive price. 

With its tagline “Bringing Warmth to the Skies,” Sunlight Air will consistently bring comfort and warmth to every passenger’s air travel by manifesting Filipino hospitality in its services and interactions and implementing advanced processes in all facets of its business to make travel as hassle-free as possible.

Sunlight Air has three ATR 72-500 aircraft in its fleet, aimed to strengthen domestic tourism with routes that seamlessly connect the Philippine destinations, especially Palawan, Siargao, Boracay, Cebu and those that are still underserved by the industry. I hope my first flight will be domestic, I really want to support local tourism.

Why Choose to Fly with Sunlight Air?

With all the big players, why go for a new airline? Here are just some of the points raised during the media online launch last week:

- They have private lounges in Manila and Busuanga

- Discounts on COVID tests 

- Availability of on-site COVID Antigen booths inside the lounge 

- Availability of up-to-date COVID regulations on platforms 

- Maximum 70% load capacity 

- Flexible scheduling 

- Flexible rebooking  

- Strict COVID measures and practices all throughout and in between flights 

- Enhanced sanitation processes

Sunlight Air further changes the aviation game by giving ALL its passengers access to an in-flight entertainment system. With this, passengers can access high-quality premium content such as movies, music, news, magazine, games, and more in full HD 1080p format.

Sunlight Travel Bubble Package

During the online launch, Sunlight Air featured their first-ever travel bubble package in partnership with Asia Pacific Travel and Sunlight Ecotourism Island Resort (SETIR). With the package, Sunlight Air and its partners aim to take small but safe steps in recovering domestic tourism towards the new normal. 

Asia Pacific Travel is the official travel agency of Sunlight Air with 8 years’ worth of experience in the tourism industry, while SETIR is one of the biggest privately-owned island resorts located in Culion, Palawan.

The travel bubble package starts at Php 40,000, with rates varying according to the type of villa (Studio/Cluster Villa, Two-Bedroom Villa, and Sirakan Villa). All accommodations are overwater villas with ocean view balconies. You can check this page for rates and other info:​.


- 4 days and 3 nights accommodation for two 

- Roundtrip air transfer from Manila to Busuanga, Palawan and vice versa via Sunlight Air 

- Roundtrip land and boat transfers from Busuanga Airport to SETIR and vice versa 

- Private use of Manila and Busuanga lounge 

- Daily breakfast at Sun Café 

- One-time spa treatment for 2 at the Sanctuary Spa

Sunlight Air has been prepared for the new normal and was ever since agile to respond to the demands of the pandemic with its stringent health and safety protocols, decontamination procedures, and exclusive facilities that passengers may avail themselves the privacy away from the busy airport.

The launch of the all-inclusive travel bubble package with SETIR is set to take place from December 24, 2020, until December 27, 2020. The “Fly, Stay & Dine” to SETIR getaway promotes a concept of a safer way to resume domestic travel to Palawan with a chartered flight going to the private island.

Right now, the travel bubble package is only for Culion, Palawan, but soon Sunlight Air will also introduce partnerships with other hotels and resorts in different local destinations.
