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.

For book­ings and in­quiries, guests can visit www.ce­bu­paci­fi­ or call the reser­va­tion hot­lines (+ 632)7020-888 or (+ 6332)230-8888. The lat­est seat sales can be found on CEB’s of­fi­cial Twit­ter (@Ce­bu­Paci­fi­cAir) and Face­book pages.

Guests may also down­load the Cebu Pa­cific mo­bile app on the App Store and Google Play.

Cebu Air Inc. is the largest car­rier in the Philip­pine air trans­porta­tion in­dus­try, of­fer­ing its low-cost ser­vices to more des­ti­na­tions and routes with higher flight fre­quency within the Philip­pines than any other air­line.

Its 60-strong fleet is com­prised of two Air­bus A319, 36 Air­bus A320 and eight Air­bus A330. Be­tween 2017 and 2022, CEB ex­pects de­liv­ery of 7 more brand-new Air­bus A321ceo and 32 Air­bus A321­neo air­craft.

Its wholly owned sub­sidiary, Ce­bgo, cur­rently of­fers flights to 27 Philip­pine des­ti­na­tions and one in­ter­na­tional des­ti­na­tion, uti­liz­ing an ex­clu­sive fleet of eight ATR 72-500 air­craft, and six ATR 72-600 air­craft.

Ce­bgo has two strate­gic hubs in the Philip­pines namely, the Ni­noy Aquino In­ter­na­tional Air­port (NAIA) Ter­mi­nal 4 in Manila and Mac­tan Cebu In­ter­na­tional Air­port (MCIA) in Cebu.
