The Philippines' leading airline, Cebu Pacific resumes operations at the Tuguegarao Airport on Tuesday, September 18, to aid in relief efforts following the damage wrought by Typhoon Ompong.
Cebu Pacific, through its wholly-owned subsidiary Cebgo, initially mounted one round trip flight from Manila on September 18 (Tuesday). Another recovery flight, DG6006, will be mounted for tomorrow (September 19, 2018), with estimated time of departure from Manila at 8:05AM, and estimated time of arrival in Tuguegarao at 9:25AM; DG 6007 is scheduled to depart Tuguegarao at 9:55AM and is expected to land in Manila at 11:15AM.
"We understand that areas severely affected by Typhoon Ompong need a lot of support and assistance. We consider it of utmost importance to resume flights as soon as possible so we can fly in supplies, resources, and much-needed humanitarian assistance at the earliest opportunity," said Atty. JR Mantaring, Cebu Pacific Vice-President for Corporate Affairs.
Tuguegarao Airport temporarily suspended operations on Saturday, Sunday and Monday, in the aftermath of Typhoon Ompong, which devastated much of North Luzon over the weekend.
Cebu Pacific will be resuming its regular Airbus flights once the Tuguegarao Airport is fully operational.
