Surigaonons, watch out for Urduja!

Here's what I recently got from the pagasa website. Read on:

At 4:00 p.m. today, Tropical Depression "URDUJA" was estimated based on satellite and surface data at 170 kms East of Surigao City (9.7°N, 127.1°E) with maximum winds of 55 kph near the center. It is forecast to move West Northwest slowly. Northeast Monsoon affecting Northern Luzon.

Will Zest Air Invade Surigao?

I just read from MindaNews dated November 12, 2009 that Zest Air will be flying to Surigao City four times a week (Mondays, Wednesdays, Fridays, and Sundays) starting November 16.

However, when I checked Zest Air's website, I could not make a booking for Manila to Surigao trip for whatever flight date. The remarks, "No flight available!" would always appear on their book and pay window. What happened? Is that news just a false publicity?

Although I don't recommend taking smaller planes especially on peak seasons (I'll explain in one of my future posts as to why), I would welcome open competition in the airline industry. And the reason is obvious...

Hopefully Zest Air will finally make it to my homeland... :)
