CEBU PACIFIC is set to launch two new routes from its Cagayan de Oro hub in March, as it further expands its domestic network.

In a statement, the Gokongwei-led budget carrier said it will start four weekly flights (Monday, Wednesday, Friday and Sunday) between Cagayan de Oro and Tagbilaran on March 15.

Three weekly flights (Tuesday, Thursday and Saturday) will also be launched between Cagayan de Oro and Bacolod on March 16.

The new routes will utilize Cebu Pacific’s new ATR 72-600 aircraft which will be delivered in early March.

“Cebu Pacific stays committed in providing the best connectivity options for our valued passengers at the lowest fare available in the market... At the same time, passengers from Tagbilaran and Bacolod will now be able to explore Mindanao without the hassle, through the gateway that is Cagayan de Oro,” Alexander Lao, Cebgo president and chief executive officer, was quoted as saying in a statement.

Cebu Pacific is offering a P799 all-in fare for the two routes for travel from March 15 to May 31, 2017. The regular, one-way fare from Cagayan de Oro to Tagbilaran is P1,235, while Cagayan de Oro to Bacolod is at P1,806.
