Cebu Pacific suspends Caticlan flights

Font Size


CEBU PACIFIC said it is temporarily halting all flights to and from Caticlan, Aklan due to the very low demand following the closure of Boracay.

In a statement on Thursday, the Gokongwei-led airline said its Caticlan operations will be suspended from May 17 to Oct. 27. Full commercial service to Caticlan is expected to resume once Boracay is reopened in late October.

It gave affected passengers the option to get a full refund for their ticket, save the value of their ticket for future use, rebook the flight or reroute to any domestic destination within 30 days.

President Rodrigo R. Duterte last month approved the six-month closure of Boracay, starting April 26, to allow for its rehabilitation.

Cebu Pacific initially decided to only trim its operations to Caticlan and Kalibo to six flights daily to accommodate the locals. — Denise A. Valdez
