Airswift ground crew in Manila airport terminal 4 was all smiles and pleasant. They gave snacks in a small paper bag.
Airswift ground crew at Lio Airport didn't smile at all and no pleasantries were said. They were respectful though as they opened and inspected all baggages (no X-ray machines!)
They need to train more their check-in person (short haired tomboy?). Better put a more pleasant, friendly one there.

First time in El Nido. We flew via Air Swift (Ayala-owned and formerly known as ITI). I think they are the only airline using this airport. I loved this airport. It's really small that I think only small planes can land there like Sea Air maybe. Our flight took only an hour from Manila. It was drizzling then. A jeepney fetched us from the tarmac. Then we disembarked at a waiting area that looks like a big bahay kubo. Locals greeted us with a song number and snacks were served at a buffet table. We felt like VIPs actually. For someone who's used to CebPac, our experience here is much better. The baggage area is situated by the trees. The staff were very helpful and will call a tricycle for you. The airport is about 45mins from the town by tricycle. Fare is P300.
Departure: Our return flight is at 1pm but it was delayed due to Manila air traffic (what's new). The departure area is very much like the arrival area. A big bahay kubo with buffet snacks (kakanin, to the delight of the foreigners) and clean restrooms. They have a bookshelf full of hardcover travel books you can read while you wait for your flight. They don't have aircon but they do have big air coolers. Make sure to use Off Lotion though. I really liked our experience with Air Swift. We felt like VIPs kasi eh. I dunno. Iba eh. The staff treat you like kings and queens that you just won't feel with CebPac or even PAL. Not sure but maybe this is common with smaller airports.
