Cebu Pacific flies directly from Davao to Singapore three times a week.
Candice Iyog, CEB vice president for marketing, said that with Davao as their third hub, a A319 aircraft will be stationed at the Davao airport.
“We are the only domestic airline that has direct flights from Davao to Singapore, Hong Kong, and Iloilo,” Iyog said during a press conference Thursday. Iyog added that the maiden flights of the three new routes have been very promising.
“Even our forward bookings are already full,” Iyog said. The first direct flight from Davao to Singapore was last night at 8 p.m. while the first direct flight from Davao to Hong Kong is at 8:40 p.m. tonight.
“We are hopeful that this will make Davao and Mindanao a more attractive destination for tourism and trade,” Iyog said.
