MANILA -- Cebu Pacific said Thursday it would start daily flights between its Cebu City hub and Busuanga in Palawan in October, with base fares as low as P299.

Starting Oct. 27, Cebgo will fly twice daily between Mactan Cebu International Airport and Francisco B. Reyes Airport, the gateway to the famous tourist island of Coron.

The first flight departs Cebu at 7:25 a.m., and arrives in
Busuanga at 9 a.m., while its return flight leaves Busuanga at 9:20 a.m. and arrives in Cebu at 11 a.m., the country's largest airline said.

The second flight leaves Cebu at 10:25 a.m., and lands in Busuanga at 12:05 p.m. while its turnaround flight departs at 12:25 p.m. and arrives at 2:10 p.m.

“We believe that these twice daily flights will enable residents from Cebu and other parts of Visayas and Mindanao to explore Palawan, without having to make the trip to Metro Manila to catch their flights," said Cebgo President and CEO Alexander Lao.

The P299 base fare promo will be offered from Aug. 17 until seats last, for travel from Oct. 27 to March 28, 2020.
