Cebu Pacific starts direct Manila-Cauayan (Isabela) today

Gokongwei-owned Cebu Pacific (CEB), the Philippines’ largest domestic airline, starts its thrice weekly Manila-Cauayan (Isabela) service today, using its brand new ATR 72-500 aircraft.

The new service will fly every Monday, Wednesday, and Friday. The flight departs Manila at 9:50am and lands in Cauayan at 10:50am. The return flight departs Cauayan at 11:10 and arrives in Manila at 12:10nn.

CEB’s Manila-Cauayan flights are sold at ‘Go Lite’ fare of P988 all-in.

Operating to new cities like Cauayan is part of the airline’s nation building efforts. Cauayan is CEB’s 32nd domestic destination.

“CEB is continuously expanding its domestic network because we want to help boost development within the country by offering an affordable means of transportation,” said Candice Iyog, CEB VP for marketing and distribution. “Easier access to these areas can lead to more vibrant tourism and business activities.

“A faster, affordable and more convenient way to get to Isabela encourages people to go home to their provinces more often. Or maybe even bring their friends to visit their hometowns.” Iyog added.

CEB is the only airline operating the Manila-Cauayan (Isabela) route.

Passengers may book their flights at www.cebupacificair.com, call reservations at (02) 70-20-88, or visit their nearest travel agent.

CEB, the leading domestic carrier, flies to 14 cities in Asia and 32 domestic destinations with direct flights from Clark, Cebu, Davao, and Manila. It currently has the youngest fleet in the country, comprised of 21 Airbus A320s and 8 ATR aircraft.
