Cebu Pacific boosts Davao hub with direct route to Tagbilaran
CLARK FREEPORT — The Philippines’leading airline Cebu Pacific continues to expand its domestic network by adding a new route that will directly link Davao City with Tagbilaran, Bohol.
Starting October 21, 2017, the carrier’s whollyowned subsidiary, Cebgo, will begin flying between Davao and Tagbilaran four-times-a-week (Tuesdays, Thursday, Saturdays, and Sundays).
The new Davao-Tagbilaran route establishes a seamless connection for both air passenger and cargo service, ultimately benefitting the economies of the greater Davao area and the province of Bohol.
“As part of our efforts to improve the overall customer experience for everyJuan, we have been taking to heart the suggestions and feedback from our guests. We’ve looked at the feasibility of the Davao-Tagbilaran route and are optimistic that this new air link will not only answer the clamor from the local communities, but stimulate trade and tourism in both destinations,” said Alexander Lao, President and CEO of Cebgo.
To officially launch the beginning of this new route, CEB is offering an introductory, all-in seat sale of PHP599 until September 17, 2017, or while seats last. Travel period is from October 29, 2017 to March 31, 2018.
Davao serves as the Cebu Pacific hub in Mindanao, linking the city to more places than any other carrier.
Cebu Pacific flies directly to Bacolod, Cagayan de Oro, Cebu, Dumaguete, Iloilo, Manila, Tacloban and Zamboanga as well as to Singapore.
Aside from Davao, CEB also operates flights out of five other strategically placed hubs in the Philippines: Manila, Cebu, Clark, Kalibo, and Iloilo.
The airline’s extensive network covers over 100 routes across 26 international and 37 domestic destinations, spanning Asia, Australia, the Middle East, and USA.
