CEB to add 2 new routes from northern Mindanao


By Emmie Abadilla | Manila Bulletin

Cebu Pacific (CEB) expands further in the Mindanao region in two months with the launch of two more routes – between Cagayan de Oro and Tagbilaran as well as between Cagayan de Oro and Bacolod.

Starting March 15 and 16, 2017, CEB will fly four times weekly (Monday, Wednesday, Friday and Sunday) between Cagayan de Oro and Tagbilaran; and three times weekly (Tuesday, Thursday and Saturday) between Cagayan de Oro and Bacolod.

Both new routes will be using the new ATR 72-600 aircraft to be delivered in early March.

To introduce the new routes, CEB is offering an introductory P799 all-in seat sale, for travel from March 15 until May 31, 2017.  Travellers may book their flights from January 23 to 27, 2017 or until seats last. The promo fare is inclusive of taxes and fees, while bags, meals and other ancillaries may be added as preferred.

“Cebu Pacific stays committed in providing the best connectivity options for our passengers at the lowest fare available in the market,” noted Alexander Lao, President and CEO of Cebgo.

“These new routes will open opportunities for both business and leisure travelers, enabling them to visit the Visayas region more conveniently. At the same time, passengers from Tagbilaran and Bacolod can now explore Mindanao through the Cagayan de Oro gateway.”

After the sale period, CEB’s lowest all-in year-round fare, one-way from Cagayan de Oro to Tagbilaran will be P1,235; Cagayan de Oro to Bacolod, P1,806.

CEB operates flights out of six hubs: Manila, Cebu, Davao, Clark, Kalibo, and Iloilo. Its network covers 66 destinations with over 100 routes, spanning Asia, Australia, the Middle East and the USA.
