centered on the development of transportation and communication sectors. This is due to the fact that tourism has

greatly shaken the aviation industry by the way for more Filipinos to travel by air. In the Philippines, there are
currently four (4) locally run low-cost carriers namely: Cebu Pacific Air, Airphil Express, South East Asian Airlines
(SEAIR), and Zest Air Philippines. The Department of Tourism (DOT) reported that visitor arrivals in 2011 have
reached more than 2 million and this expected to increase on the next years to come.
