Touchdown in Tacloban
|Good morning, Tacloban!|
Local carriers such as Cebu Pacific, Philippine Airlines/PALexpress, TigerAir and Air Asia Zest have daily flights to Tacloban. From Manila, it is a mere one-hour flight. There are usually flight schedules as early as 4:00 am. If you are planning to stay somewhere far off Tacloban City, I suggest you get the earliest flight as van and bus schedules are not 24/7.
Likewise, some carriers like Cebu Pacific and Philippine Airlines/PALexpress have daily flights from Cebu to Tacloban.
Supercat offers a thrice daily schedule from Cebu to Ormoc and vice versa. From Ormoc, Tacloban is another two-hour drive via Van Van's or Duptours (shuttle vans).
By Land and Sea
From Manila (Cubao and Pasay), there are buses bound to Tacloban. Travel time is more or less 23 hours. These are Philtranco, Ultra Bus, Silverstar, etc.These buses usually pass by the provinces of Batangas, Laguna, Quezon, Camarines Norte, Camarines Sur, and Sorsogon, then board a RoRo vessel in Matnog which will cross amd bring you to Allen in Northern Samar. It will continue the journey towards the rest of Samar and eventually cross the San Juanico Bridge to bring you to Tacloban.

There are three eateries at the right side of the airport (S&A, Happy Landing and Jetsetter). We were having a hard time choosing among the three but since S&A has the most number of diners, we settled to eat there.
