Cebu Pacific announces new route from Cebu to Siargao

Gokongwei-owned airline Cebu Pacific Air (CEB) plans to further boost its Cebu operations by mounting additional services to key destinations within the archipelago.

Starting January 10, 2009, CEB will fly three times weekly between Cebu and Cotabato, and four times weekly between Cebu and Legaspi, with a year-round 'Go Lite' fare of Php 888 one way.

On January 12, the airline will begin thrice-weekly flights between Cebu and Dumaguete, with a year-round 'Go Lite' offering of Php 588 one way. Also commencing on the same day is a thrice-weekly service between Cebu and Siargao, with a year-round 'Go Lite' of Php 888 one way.

"Cebu is a very important market for our airline," said Candice Iyog, CEB VP for marketing and distribution. "We will continue to strengthen this hub by offering as many choices for our Cebu passengers as possible."

Iyog added, "At the same time, we'd like to maximize Cebu's accessibility to both foreign and domestic passengers, to heighten both tourism and business opportunities for the entire province."

In addition to its four new Cebu services, the airline will increase the number of flights of existing services.

By January 9, 2009, flights between Cebu and Tacloban will become daily, while starting January 11, CEB will increase its Cebu – Ozamiz flights to four times weekly. By February 2, CEB's Cebu – Iloilo service will go from thrice weekly to daily.

Iyog said that the earlier passengers book their flights, the greater the chances of availing the lowest possible fares.

"The fastest and most convenient way to book and pay for flights, is through www.cebupacificair.com," she said. "Passengers can also block their preferred seats and pre-pay excess baggage through our website, plus check out our other services including fun tours and travel insurance."

CEB is the largest domestic airline in the Philippines, which flies to 27 domestic and 15 international destinations. From Cebu, CEB offers the most number of flights, as it services 15, soon to be 19 domestic destinations and four international destinations.
