Along with Cebu Pacific cabin crew, CAAP’s Jose Emmanuel Sadam; Davao City Investment and Tourism Officer Jason Magnaye, the airline’s VP Marketing and Distribution Candice Iyog; Summit World’s Eduardo Bangayan; and DOT Region 11 Director Art Boncato cut the ribbon for the new route from Davao to Puerto Princesa, while passengers travelling on the Kalibo service were entertained with traditional music and dance.
- Cebu Pacific launched two new routes out of Davao (DVO) on southern Philippines’ Mindanao Island on 1 August. The Philippine low-cost airline now serves its latest, sixth base – Kalibo (KLO) in central Philippines – as well as Puerto Princesa (PPS) in the west of the country from Davao. Each of the two uncontested routes is operated four times weekly, on Tuesday, Thursday, Saturday and Sundays, with the airline’s 180-seat A320s. Cebu Pacific’s VP Marketing and Distribution, Candice Iyog, commented: “Starting today, two popular tourism destinations, Puerto Princesa and Boracay, will be within easy reach of Dabawenyos and vice versa. Providing accessibility across the Philippine islands continue to be one of Cebu Pacific’s top priorities, and is evident in the rest of the new routes we are launching later this year.”
