CEB expands domestic network with the launch of Laoag flights


Cebu Pacific (PSE: CEB), the Philippines’ leading airline, further expands its north Luzon network with the launch of flights between Manila and Laoag, allowing more travelers to explore the stunning landscapes and rich cultural heritage of the Ilocandia.

The airline said beginning May 22, it will fly daily between Manila and Laoag, making it the 35th domestic destination in the airline’s widest domestic network.

“Laoag plays a crucial role in preserving the country’s rich history and culture, and we are excited to finally be able to bring more Juans to this beautiful city. We hope that the launch of the Laoag route will encourage more people to travel and experience the Ilocos region,” said Xander Lao, Cebu Pacific President and Chief Commercial Officer.

Laoag, which is just a one-hour flight from Manila, is the capital of Ilocos Norte and serves as a jump-off point to many of the province’s most popular tourist destinations. The city is the perfect destination for nature lovers, history buffs, and thrill seekers.

Go on a sandboarding adventure on the La Paz Sand Dunes, visit the centuries-old Spanish colonial buildings, and take photos with the sinking bell tower of the St. William’s Cathedral. From Laoag, travelers can also reach other attractions in the Ilocos Region such as the Paoay Church and the white sand beaches of Pagudpud.

CEB currently flies to 34 domestic and 25 international destinations, spanning across Asia, Australia and the Middle East.
