Domingo Ramon C .Enerio III, Chief Operating Officer-Tourism Promotions Board (TPB) together with Candice Iyog, Vice-President for Marketing and Distribution-Cebu Pacific Air (CEB), shake hands after signing the Memorandum of Understanding (MOU) in support of Bangon Tours, a project of the TPB – the marketing arm of the Philippines Department of Tourism (PDOT). The signing was held last 6 January 2013 at the Cebu Pacific's Airline Operations Center in Pasay City.

 

The first airline partner of Bangon Tours, CEB mounted humanitarian flights for stranded passengers in Tacloban and transported cargo to aid victims of Typhoon Yolanda (Haiyan).  It remains committed to assist in rehabilitation and tourism efforts with the launch of a special Bangon Tour seat sale in the coming weeks, promoting travel within the Philippines in its marketing materials.

 

The Bangon Tours Project is an initiative of the Department of Tourism and the Tourism Promotions Board. This project is in line with the government's recovery and rebuilding efforts for the victims and survivors of calamities through the promotion of domestic tourism. It is an invitation to the Filipino market to travel within the Philippines during the holiday period (December to February), visit fun destinations, and participate in rebuilding efforts.

 

Some of the areas featured for Bangon Tours include Ilocos, Manila-Tagaytay, Puerto Princesa, Bicol, Cebu, Davao, Bohol, Iloilo, Boracay, Siargao, and Cagayan de Oro-Camiguin.
