Helping to launch Cebu Pacific’s inaugural service from Hong Kong to Iloilo was the Philippine Consul General in Hong Kong, Noel Servigon, who himself was born and bred in Iloilo.
- Cebu Pacific expanded its presence in Iloilo (ILO) last week, as it launched its first international flights from the airport serving the capital of Western Visayas. The airline now offers flights from Iloilo City to both Singapore (SIN), thrice-weekly as of 9 November, and Hong Kong (HKG), twice-weekly from 8 November. All services will be operated using the airline’s fleet of A320s. Cebu’s VP Marketing and Distribution, Candice Iyog, said: “With these new routes, Cebu Pacific affirms its commitment to provide connectivity to Iloilo and Western Visayas, by basing an aircraft here, and making Iloilo one of the airline’s operational hubs.”
