The Philippines’ largest national flag carrier Cebu Pacific (CEB) is flying direct services from Iloilo to Hong Kong and Singapore, making Iloilo the airline’s 5th hub in the country.
CEB offers twice weekly flights from Iloilo to Hong Kong and thrice weekly flights from Iloilo to Singapore.
“We are proud to launch Iloilo as our 5th hub, since these new routes will greatly contribute to the tourism and trade in Western Visayas. Direct international flights also mean easy access for foreign tourists and overseas Filipino workers, since there will be no more need to pass through Manila or Cebu,” said Candice Iyog, CEB VP for Marketing and Distribution.
CEB currently operates direct services from Iloilo to Manila, Cebu, Cagayan de Oro and Davao.
“These new routes are in time for the delivery of three more brand-new Airbus A320 aircraft. CEB will continue to stimulate travel to, from, and within the Philippines with the most extensive route network and trademark lowest fares,” she added.
“Passengers can take advantage of this seat sale as it covers the peak travel period from November to January. This will greatly benefit those coming home for the holidays, or planning Christmas vacations for family and friends,” Iyog said.

CEB currently operates 10 Airbus A319, 20 Airbus A320 and 8 ATR-72 500 aircraft.
Its fleet of 38 aircraft – with an average age of 3.6 years – is the largest aircraft fleet in the Philippines. Between 2012 and 2021, Cebu Pacific will take delivery of 22 more Airbus A320 and 30 Airbus A321neo aircraft orders. It is slated to begin long-haul services in the 3rd quarter of 2013.
In its 16th year of operations, CEB had flown over 60 million passengers.
It provides access to the most extensive network in the Philppines, with 32 domestic and 19 international destinations.
The airline also remains a pioneer in the Philippine aviation industry by being the first to offer web check-in, self check-in, e-ticketing and Lite Fares.
Cebu Air Inc. is the largest carrier in the Philippine air transportation industry, offering its low-cost services to more destinations and routes with higher flight frequency within the Philippines than any other airline.
