Cebu Pacific is adding more flights from its Davao and Cebu hubs, increasing its non-Manila flight network by 35%.

On October 30 and 31, respectively, Cebu Pacific will resume its direct flights from Davao to Cagayan de Oro and Bacolod, allowing passengers in Mindanao to connect easily to more places across the country.

Davao-Bacolod will be operating three times weekly, every Monday, Wednesday and Friday; while Davao-Cagayan de Oro will be four times weekly, every Tuesday, Thursday, Saturday, and Sunday.

These additional flights take the total number of domestic connections from Davao to seven. They include direct flights to Bohol, Cebu, Iloilo, Manila, and Zamboanga.

The airline will also be restarting its first international flight from Davao on October 30. It will be flying passengers direct to Singapore.

Cebu Pacific is the first local airline to bring back direct international operations to Davao.

The airline also continues to boost its connections from its Cebu hub as it expects to add more flights to key domestic destinations in November. These will include flights to Bacolod, Butuan, Cagayan de Oro, Iloilo, General Santos, and Puerto Princesa, among other places.

Cebu Pacific currently flies direct to 22 domestic destinations from Cebu, and two international, namely Singapore and Seoul (Incheon).

“As we approach the holiday season, we expect more people wanting to fly and come back home, thus we made sure we are more than ready with additional flight connections,” Cebu Pacific chief commercial officer Xander Lao said in a statement.

Cebu Pacific earlier said it currently operates 88% of its pre-pandemic system-wide capacity, flying to a total of 34 domestic and 19 international destinations.
