LOW-COST CARRIER Cebu Pacific, through its wholly-owned subsidiary Cebgo, will have flights between Cebu and Busuanga in northern Palawan starting Oct. 27. In a statement Thursday, the airline said the flights will be twice a day, with the first departing the Mactan Cebu International Airport at 7:25 a.m. and the second at 10:25 a.m. Return flights from Busuanga are at 9:20 a.m. and 12:25 p.m. “We believe that these twice daily flights will enable residents from Cebu and other parts of Visayas and Mindanao to explore Palawan, without having to make the trip to Metro Manila to catch their flights. With this direct Cebu-Busuanga route, the islands of Coron and Culion are easier to get to,” Cebgo President and Chief Executive Officer Alexander G. Lao said. “This will also allow locals from the rest of Southern Luzon to easily connect to Cebu and its network of over 20 domestic and six international destinations,” he said. Cebu Pacific, along with Cebgo, flies to 37 domestic and 27 international destinations.
