Cebu Pacific adds five new routes to its inter-regional network, connecting more islands from Mindanao to Visayas to the rest of the archipelago.
The new routes stem from requests from stakeholders, particularly in Mindanao, to improve connectivity of key cities.
Starting July 26, 2017, Cebu Pacific wholly-owned subsidiary Cebgo will fly three times weekly (Mondays, Wednesdays, and Fridays) between Cebu and Masbate, Davao and Dumaguete, and Zamboanga and Cotabato. Cebgo will also begin flying four times a week (Tuesdays, Thursdays, Saturdays, and Saturdays) between Cagayan de Oro and Zamboanga, and Davao and Tacloban on July 27, 2017.
The new routes will be serviced by the Cebgo fleet of ATR aircraft.
“Cebu Pacific is very pleased to continue to help promote domestic and international tourism and a logistics enabler to move goods across the country. As we expand into new routes and destinations across the Philippine archipelago, we are committed to being a partner in spurring trade and tourism; helping pump-prime the local economy and providing everyJuan with more travel options with year-round affordable fares,” said Alexander Lao, President and CEO of Cebgo.
“Travelling across the Philippines is easier and more convenient for everyJuan. To get from the Visayas to Mindanao and back, travellers now have more choices and need not pass through larger airports in Metro Manila or even Cebu.”
Year-to-date, Cebu Pacific has launched commercial operations of eight new routes: Manila-Masbate; Manila and Tablas, Romblon; between Cagayan de Oro and Tagbilaran; to and from Cagayan de Oro and Bacolod; Cebu-Cotabato; Cebu-Busuanga (Coron); Clark-Busuanga (Coron); and Clark-Caticlan (Boracay).
