- Cebu Pacific Air has launched three new routes from Cebu (CEB). On 19 November, Cebgo, the fully-owned subsidiary of Cebu Pacific Air (and formerly known as Tigerair Philippines) began operating the routes on behalf of its parent company. Cebgo, which is now a pure turboprop operator, began daily ATR 72-500 flights to Ormoc (OMC) and Roxas (RXS) and a four times weekly service to Calbayog (CYP). None of these routes are currently served by any other carrier. At just 105 kilometres in length, the route to Ormoc is the shortest of the three, while the 204-kilometre route to Calbayog is the longest. According to OAG Schedules Analyser data Cebu is now connected to 26 other airports in the Philippines with non-stop flights, as well as 12 international destinations, including Los Angeles.
