SuperFerry restores service to Palawan
MANILA, Philippines—The country’s largest shipping firm, SuperFerry, is restoring its service to Puerto Princesa, Palawan, as part of the expansion of its route network following the acquisition of the company by Negros Navigation Co. Inc. (Nenaco).
In a statement, the company said the public may start availing of tickets to Puerto Princesa during the 18th Philippine Travel Agencies’ Association (PTAA) Travel Tour Expo on February 18 to 20 at the SMX Convention Center. Special promo rates for as low as P50 for any accommodation will be offered during the expo.
SuperFerry said it plans to start its service to Puerto Princesa on March 25.
“This allows us to reconnect with our regular travelers to and from Palawan, while at the same time, making Puerto Princesa tourist destinations more accessible to a greater number of people,” SuperFerry vice president for marketing Andrew Deyto said.
He pointed out that SuperFerry fares continued to be much cheaper than most transport alternatives, which would allow the company to compete against budget airlines.
With the inclusion of the Puerto Princesa destination, SuperFerry will have 15 ports of call all over the Philippines, including Manila, Bacolod, Iloilo, Butuan, Cagayan de Oro, Cebu, Cotabato, Davao, Dumaguete, General Santos, Iligan, Ozamis, Surigao and Zamboanga.
SuperFerry currently has six vessels, namely: SuperFerry 1, SuperFerry 2, SuperFerry 5, SuperFerry 12, SuperFerry 20, and SuperFerry 21.
