The Iloilo-Davao thrice weekly (Tuesday, Thursday, and Saturday) service departs from Iloilo at 7:50am and arrives in Davao at 8:55am. The Davao-Iloilo flight is also scheduled to operate every Tuesday, Thursday, and Sunday. The flight departs from Davao at 6:15am and arrives in Iloilo at 7:20am.

CEB is the only airline operating a non-stop service between Iloilo and Davao. It also operates four daily flights from Iloilo to Manila and a daily service to Cebu.

“We hope to stimulate tourism and trade between Iloilo and Davao with the start of our non-stop service between these two progressive cities. We know that our low fares and convenient schedule for this route will encourage more people to explore these local destinations.” Candice Iyog, CEB VP for marketing and product said.

Iyog explained that CEB’s inter-island connection endeavors to promote domestic tourism within the Visayas and Mindanao provinces. “We are very positive that many first-time flyers from Iloilo and the entire Panay Island can now enjoy the convenience of traveling to Davao in the shortest time possible,” she explained.
