Direct flights to La Union by SEAIR

I finally got the time to blog! So, for starters, here are some great news from SEAIR… They’ve recently opened a route to San Fernando, La Union!

Perfect timing, as it’s summer. As you know, La Union is famous for its waves — a perfect surfing destination. I don’t know how to surf, though I’ve been wanting to learn. Plans to go surfing with friends have been on the back-burner for almost a year now, everyone’s just a bit too busy to make any concrete plans. Hopefully, with this new route, planning for a trip to La Union would be easier, as we don’t need to factor in the long bus rides (frankly, the only way I know going to La Union is through bus ride from Manila).

But wait, there’s more! Aside from flying to La Union every Monday, Wednesday and Friday starting 14 April 2010, SEAIR also offers a complimentary 45-minute land transfer to Baguio City!
