February 24, 2010
Manila-Low cost carrier Cebu Pacific (CEB) will fly to Pagadian airport starting April 27, 2010 with a special ‘Go Lite’ seat sale as low as P688 from February 24-25, 2010 for travel between April 27 to July 31, 2010. Manila-Pagadian flights are also up for grabs for only P1,088, for travel June 9 to July 31, 2010.

"This is the first route expansion of the airline this year. Cebu-Pagadian-Cebu service will start on April 27, 2010 and Manila-Pagadian-Manila will begin on June 9, 2010" says Candice Iyog, VP for Marketing and Distribution.

“We are excited with the April launch of our Pagadian route, and we hope that we can stimulate the tourism and economy in the area. Pagadian is the regional center of Western Mindanao region so we should expect more traffic from this area particularly from the government and the business sectors. Its primarily an alternative point of entry to Misamis Occidental and Lanao del Norte” she said.

The flight schedule for Cebu-Pagadian-Cebu, effective April 27,2010 are the following:

CEB-PAG 5J 443 1130H - 1230H T-TH-SA-SU ATR 72-500
PAG-CEB 5J 444 1250H - 1350H T-TH-SA-SU ATR 72-500

"However, our flight frequency to Ozamiz might be affected with this move." says Iyog. Flights 5J869/870 Cebu-Ozamiz-Cebu T/Th/Sa/Su frequency are scheduled to be canceled effective on the same date. There is also plan of reducing the frequency for 5J781/782 Manila-Ozamiz-Manila in favor of 5J773/774. "Most of our passengers there either comes from Lanao del Norte and Zamboanga del Sur. Nothing is final yet but we are evaluating them" adds Iyog.

5J 773/774 Manila-Pagadian-Manila, has the following tentative schedule effective June 9,2010:

MNL-PAG 5J 773 1135H - 1310H M-W-F A319

Cebu Pacific has the most extensive domestic network in the country boasting 33 domestic destinations across the nation to include the upcoming flight to Pagadian this April. Aside from Pagadian, CEB flies to the following Mindanao destinations direct from Manila and Cebu to Surigao, Siargao, Butuan, Cagayan de Oro, Dipolog, Ozamiz, Zamboanga, Cotabato, General Santos and Davao.


  1. I am so excited upon knowing that MNL-PAG Cebu Pacific Air route has been reopened. I would again be one of the frequent travellers to the area. Is the airport bigger now? Are the planes bigger? Whew! after 3 years, the tricycle drivers of Ozamiz airport cannot collect Php300 from me from the airport to IBT which is soooooo near.

  2. Wow. go .go. go pagadian leaping towards progress. of course the airport should be bigger now as it can accomodate the A319 jet the latest in the Airbus family of single aisle aircraft

  3. I was one of the passenger during the first time ever flight to pagadian this year! awesome...

  4. Vic Pagadian will continue to leap, congrats Pagadian!
