Do the prices on flights from Manila to El Nido fluctuate much or is it a set rate? Wondering if I just book now or like with other itineraries sometimes it pays to keep an eye on prices.

Sometimes there's a seat sale specially during the rainy season. If you will travel during the summer months don't expect fares to go down specially that AirSwift has the monopoly of flights to and from El Nido.

well if you go on their website tickets are 6300 for nearly all days rising to 7,500 over the Christmas period and down to 6300 after the new year. Unlike most airlines prices do not fluctuate.

A semi informed guess would say don't expect much variation but expect with the rising popularity of el nido and the limited flights available to find them selling out especially when the flights to PPS start escalating in price as they do as the tourist season approaches

Hi. I only experienced the ticket price rising as time went on, so purchase as far in advance as you can!

there are different Fare classes, which are cheaper when you book early on flights not so busy yet. Airswift has scheduled fare increases or decreases depending on the season.

You may check our website for the dates and timetable and fares:

Yes, flights to specific destinations fluctuates a lot. However, since Air Swift is not considered a budget airline, price fluctuation would not be that big.

It does fluctuate and so its a gamble you'd take. I booked my Air Swift ticket 2 months in advance for around P6600 and when I checked it for my mate some 10 days before our scheduled trip, it went down to around P3800. I felt the pain but we enjoyed EL Nido to the core and forgot the pain lol
