Cebu Pacific ramps up VisMin flight network by 35%

LOW-COST carrier Cebu Pacific strengthens its footprint in the Visayas and Mindanao as it adds more flights from its Davao and Cebu hubs effective November 2022.

This totals a 35 percent increase in the airline’s non-Manila flight network.

On Oct. 30 and 31, 2022 respectively, Cebu Pacific will be resuming its direct flights from Davao to Cagayan de Oro and Bacolod. Davao-Bacolod will be operating thrice weekly, every Monday, Wednesday and Friday; while Davao-Cagayan de Oro will be at four times weekly, every Tuesday, Thursday, Saturday and Sunday.

These additional flights bring the total number of domestic connections from Davao to seven, which includes direct flights to Bohol, Cebu, Iloilo, Manila and Zamboanga.

The airline will also be restarting its first international flight from Davao on Oct. 30 as it will fly passengers direct to Singapore. Cebu Pacific is the first local airline to bring back direct international operations in Davao.

The Gokongwei-led airline also continues to boost its connections from its Cebu hub as it expects to add more flights to key domestic destinations in November. This includes flights to Bacolod, Butuan, Cagayan de Oro, Iloilo, General Santos and Puerto Princesa, among others.

Cebu Pacific currently flies direct to 22 domestic destinations from Cebu, and two international, namely Singapore and Seoul (Incheon).

“We are very happy to share this good news with everyJuan as we continuously see sustained confidence among the traveling public. As we approach the holiday season, we expect more people wanting to fly and come back home, thus we made sure we are more than ready with additional flight connections,” said Xander Lao, Cebu Pacific chief commercial officer.
