Budget carrier Cebu Pacific on Wednesday announced new domestic and international routes, in efforts to increase connectivity within the country and the region starting October.
In an emailed statement, Cebu Pacific said it will start flying to and from Kalibo in Aklan and Clark in Pampanga.
The thrice-a-week Kalibo-Clark flight will begin on October 30, 2017 with flights on Mondays, Wednesdays, and Fridays. Meanwhile, the return Clark-Kalibo flight will start on October 31, 2017 on Tuesdays, Thursdays, and Saturdays.
Cebu Pacific subsidiary CebGo will start Cagayan de Oro-Caticlan and Cagayan de Oro-Dumaguete routes on October 20, 2017.
CebGo will also operate its first international route out of Zamboanga with flights going to Sandakan, Malaysia starting October 29, 2017.
Flights will be available on Tuesdays, Thursdays, Saturdays, and Sundays.
“Sandakan has had centuries of trade and cultural linkage with the southern Philippines, and we are especially proud to put in place infrastructure to further enhance these ties,” CebGo president and CEO Alexander Lao said.
“Now, the previous 14-hour travel by sea is cut down to just a 40-minute airplane ride,” he added.
In line with the new routes, Cebu Pacific said it will offer an introductory all-in seat sale of P599 for all domestic trips until August 18, 2017, with a travel period starting October 20, 2017 to March 15, 2018.
Flights from Zamboanga to Sandakan will also be on sale at P1,299 until August 21, 2017. The travel period will be from October 29, 2017 to December 31, 2017.
