Following a successful simulation yesterday, July 15, 2008, Manila
International Airport Authority and Cebu Pacific announced today (July 16) that
CEB will transfer part of its domestic operation to Terminal 3 starting on July
"We will phase our transfer to NAIA Terminal 3 by initially transferring our
ATR operations on July 22, to be followed by the balance of our domestic
flights. International operations will also move to Terminal 3 later in 2008,"
said Candice Iyog, CEB vice president.
CEB flights from Manila to: Boracay (Caticlan), Laoag, Naga, San Jose
(Mindoro), and Tuguegarao will be the first to operate out of the new terminal
starting July 22.
“As the country’s largest domestic carrier, we are very excited to be
offering our guests a better airport terminal because this will definitely
improve their flight experience.” Iyog emphasized.
CEB at present uses the old domestic terminal for local flights and the NAIA
Terminal 1 for its international operations.
“This very positive development is certainly something that has been long
awaited not only by the airport authorities and Cebu Pacific, but by the
traveling public most especially," said Tirso Serrano, MIAA Assistant General
Manager for Airport Development and Corporate Affairs. “The NAIA family
comprised of MIAA and the other government agencies operating at the premier
gateway are joining hands to make the initial operations at the new terminal
safe, secure, convenient for all passengers and stakeholders.” Serrano
