The country’s leading airline, Cebu Pacific, has officially announced the relaunch of its Laoag-Manila route, marking a milestone in the airline’s commitment to providing excellent services and greater connectivity to passengers traveling to and from northern Luzon.
Officially relaunched on May 22, CEB now flies daily between Laoag and Manila, making it the 35th destination in the airline’s widest domestic network.
CEB’s latest route has significantly simplified travel within the Philippines from Laoag, as the airline now offers direct flights to 29 other domestic destinations from Ninoy Aquino International Airport. These destinations include Bacolod, Boracay, Cagayan De Oro, Cebu, Davao, Iloilo, and Zamboanga, among others.
Travelers from Ilocos Region can now also conveniently connect to 23 destinations across the airline’s international network from Manila, such as Bangkok, Dubai, Hong Kong, Melbourne, Narita, Singapore, Sydney, and Taipei.
“We are excited to fly again to Laoag as we continue to grow our domestic network and provide accessible and affordable air travel to every Juan. The relaunch of this route will also strengthen Laoag’s position as a leading tourism and cultural hub in north Luzon,” said Xander Lao, Cebu Pacific President and Chief Commercial Officer.
The provincial government of Ilocos Norte lauded CEB’s initiatives to boost the province’s tourism industry and encourage more people to travel to Laoag and the rest of the Ilocos Region.
“We are thrilled to welcome back Cebu Pacific to our province, as this signals a renewed hope for our tourism industry. We hope that more airlines will follow suit, as we continue to work together to revitalize our economy and bring back the vibrancy of Ilocos Norte’s tourism sector,” said Ilocos Norte Gov. Matthew Marcos Manotoc.
CEB is firmly in place for full recovery and is set to exceed its pre-COVID network and capacity, aided by its seat sales, widest domestic network, and reinstatement of its international destinations.
