- Cebu Pacific Air has added another domestic route in the Philippines. On 30 June the carrier introduced thrice-weekly (Mondays, Wednesdays, Fridays) flights utilising its 72-seat ATR aircraft on the 285-kilometre route between Cebu (CEB) and Tandag (TDG), the capital city of the province of Surigao del Sur. Speaking at the launch flight event, Jorenz Tanada, VP for Corporate Affairs said: “The addition of this thrice-weekly Cebu-Tandag service to our network reinforces our commitment to make it easy to travel around the Philippines. Before, the closest airport with commercial flights was Butuan, which is approximately five hours away from Tandag by land. Now, Tandag is just a 65-minute flight from Cebu.” Tandag in Surigao del Sur is the gateway to the Enchanted River, the Britania Group of Islands, Cagwait Beach, Tinuy-an Falls and the surfing spot of Lanuza.
