In a statement, the airline said it will be the only carrier flying daily between Cebu and Ormoc and Cebu and Roxas City; and four times weekly (Tuesday, Thursday, Saturday and Sunday) between Cebu and Calbayog using ATR 72-500 aircraft. This brings the CEB’s current reach to a total of 36 domestic destinations.
“CEB remains committed in offering the most convenient choices for passengers at the lowest fares possible. With these additional routes in and out of the Queen City of the South, more guests can now easily explore the Visayas region,” said Alexander G. Lao, President and CEO of CEB low-cost unit Cebgo in a statement.
“At the same time, locals can now connect not only to Cebu and Manila, but to international destinations as well. Rest assured, we will continue to persist in expanding our horizons and promote trade and tourism in the destinations we operate in.”
In 2015, over 4.4 million passengers were flown to and from Cebu, with services involving the city accounting for 24.5% of CEB’s seat capacity for that year, the company said.
