Cebu Pacific is now the only airline serving the Philippine diving paradise Busuanga from Cebu.
- Cebu Pacific has launched three new domestic routes with its 72-seat ATR 72 aircraft last week. On 4 October, the Philippine low-cost airline that is the biggest carrier in the domestic market, connected Cebu (CEB) with Busuanga (USU) in the west of the country with three weekly flights. The following day, the airline expanded out of Davao (DVO) in the south, launching two routes within the island of Mindanao; each four flights a week to Butuan (BXU) and Dipolog (DPL).
