Cebu Pacific is to begin a thrice weekly direct
service from Singapore to Iloilo on 9 November, making the central
Philippine city the airline's 5th domestic hub.
Dubbed the Province of Festivals, Iloilo
lies on the south coast of Panay Island. Its rich heritage is
showcased in a variety of festivals, such as colourful street
dances of the Dinagyang Festival, celebrated in the city and towns
of the province.
Iloilo is also known for its local gastronomic
delights - from La Paz Batchoy (hot noodle dish with rich broth)
to the world-famous mangoes of Guimaras island.
“The launch of this new route will be in time
for the delivery of three more brand-new Airbus A320 aircraft in
the 2nd half of 2012. CEB will continue to stimulate travel to,
from and within the Philippines with the most extensive route
network and trademark lowest fares,” said CEB VP for Marketing and
Distribution, Candice Iyog.
To introduce the new
routes, CEB is holding a seat sale until 19 July or until seats
last. The promotion, with all-in, one-way seats from Singapore to
Iloilo for as low as Sin$44.66, is for travel from 8 November to 31 January
2013. Terms and conditions apply.
“Travellers can take
advantage of this seat sale as it covers the peak travel period
from November to January. Those coming home for the holidays, or
planning Christmas vacations for family and friends can discover
historical and cultural sites in the Philippines with Iloilo
city’s majestic and iconic churches, century-old mansions, and
delightful local delicacies,” Iyog said.
CEB will also be launching twice weekly
flights from Hong Kong to Iloilo, four weekly flights from General
Santos to Iloilo, and increase the frequency of the daily service
from Manila to Iloilo to seven times a day.
