The route was launched last February 2013 with three weekly flights. It continues to be the only jet service between Manila and Coron. Flights are operated using the airline's four engined BAE 146-200 jets that are specially designed to accommodate short runways.

On December 2, 2013, the airline plans to increase its service to daily flights competing directly with PAL Express and Cebu Pacific. But the young airline has a distinct advantage over its competitors offering the fastest flights from Manila at just 40 minutes in duration. In addition, SkyJet offers a full-service product with complimentary in-flight snacks and beverages as well as a free baggage allowance. Promotional fares start at just P1,500 one-way including all taxes and fees. 

Flights will depart Manila daily at 10:30am arriving in Busuanga at 11:10am. The return flight back to Manila departs Busuanga at 11:40am and arrives back in Manila at 12:20pm. SkyJet will offer a special promotional rate of P2,500 during the MANILART Exhibit at SMX Aura from October 10-13.

Meanwhile, Dr. Joel Mendoza, President of SkyJet,  continues to be an advocate for developing new tourist destinations in the country. Earlier this year, he called upon tourism officials and industry stakeholders to collaborate to market new destinations citing that the Philippines has more exotic destinations than just Boracay and Palawan.

SkyJet Airlines currently flies to Batanes, Busuanga, and Virac. The airline just launched a new direct service to Surigao on September 15 with flights departing Manila every Tuesday, Thursday, and Sunday. The airline plans to concentrate on developing its existing destinations as Eco-Cultural Destinations before opening more new routes.
