To help PAL sustain its operation in the province
BORONGAN CITY – To help sustain the Philippine Airlines’ operations in the province, Eastern Samar Governor Ben Evardone asked all local government units to create a tour package for their respective tourist destinations.
Evardone made this call during his meeting with the mayors and tourism officers in the province as he urged them to develop a tour package.
The governor asked them to submit their proposals to him next month.
Since the opening of its flight in the province in December of last year, the country’s flag carrier had recorded 900 passengers.
“This is big advantage for us having flight here in the province. That is why we need to sustain it, and we can do it by promoting the tourist destinations in our respective places,” Evardone said.
“I know that every town in Eastern Samar has something to offer to visitors. What you have to do is to create a product wherein tourists will know where they will go and what they will do when they come to visit our province,” the governor added.
Evardone stressed that promoting the tourist destinations of the province will help the local economy and will open job opportunities and income to the locals like farmers and fishermen.
Meantime, the tourism personnel from Maslog town informed the governor that they have to beg off because of their problem of accessibility as it is not yet connected to the province.
To reach the town, one has to travel by sea from Dolores town.
