DOT-6 eyes more North American tourists for Western Visayas

Iloilo City — As home to global beach destination Boracay Island, Western Visayas is eyeing more tourists from North America flocking into the region.

Atty. Helen Catalbas, regional director of Department of Tourism (DOT-6), said there is a big possibility that tourism arrivals from North America would be boosted with the country’s flag carrier Philippine Airlines (PAL) offering flights from Cebu to Los Angeles, California, United States and vice versa since March 15, 2016.
