Good news! Now there’s one more good reason to go to Cebu’s famous beach island destination.
If you don’t feel like the very long hours of bus and boat rides going to Bantayan Island, now you have the option to cut short the travel time and fly with Air Juan. It will resume its Mactan-Bantayan direct flights sometime this March.
Surprisingly, it’s not that expensive considering you can arrive in style in just approximately 20 minutes, compared to the usual 4-5 hours of bus-boat ride.
A quick comparison on the standard bus-ferry vs flying with Air Juan:
- Travel time: 4-5 hours in total, from the North Bus Terminal
- Fare: P280 one-way (P170 Bus, P110 Ferry)
- Availability: Mondays to Sundays, almost every hour

FLYING WITH AIR JUAN
- Travel time: 40 minutes, from Mactan Airport
- Fare: P1,288 one-way (price may vary)
- Availability: Mondays AND Thursdays only, check schedule below
The only deal breakers here, as of the moment, are the price (which is still tolerable) and the availability (available twice a week only, no Fridays to Sundays).
