Cebu Pacific adds flights to Siargao


Manila Bulletin

Cebu Pacific (CEB), through its wholly owned subsidiary Cebgo, increased flight frequencies to Siargao, the Surfing Capital of the Philippines.

Starting February 1, Cebgo passengers will be able to choose from 12 weekly flights between Cebu and Siargao. From April 2017 onwards, guests can book up to twice daily Cebu-Siargao flights.

Siargao lies in Surigao Del Norte in Mindanao, and is home to world-renowned surfing breaks. The most well-known of these is the Cloud 9, which is where the annual Siargao Cup is held every September. It was also recognized as CNN’s ninth best surf spot in the world.

“With these additional frequencies, not only do we boost traffic to Siargao from Cebu, but we are also able to strengthen Cebu as a hub, while giving everyJuan more chances to explore one of the most beautiful islands in the Philippines,” Alexander Lao, President and CEO for Cebgo, said.

CEB’s Cebu hub was recently strengthened with the launch of direct flights to Ormoc, Roxas and Calbayog.  CEB continues to increase connectivity between Cebu and other destinations such as Tandag, Camiguin and Clark, among others.  Overall, it operates direct flights to 25 domestic destinations and 5 international destinations from Cebu.
