This Mindanao blogger was at the Tigerair Manila to CDO inaugural flight a few days ago, thanks to the invitation from Tigerair. Tigerair, which formed an alliance with Cebu Pacific Air, is the latest budget airline to offer Manila to Cagayan de Oro and CDO to Manila flights.
Utilizing an Airbus A320 aircraft, the Manila to CDO flights will depart from NAIA 4 (take note that this is the old Manila domestic airport) at 10 AM while the CDO to Manila flights will leave at 12:10 PM (Wednesday and Sunday) and at 12:30 PM (Monday, Tuesday, Thursday, Friday, Saturday).
According to Tigerair Philippines, for those traveling to and fro CDO before or after the 1st quarter of 2015, they can avail of the lowest year-round fares starting at Php 1,518.00.
Misamis Oriental Governor Yevgeny “Bambi” Emano, Tigerair Philippines Corporate Affairs Chief Atty. Leilani de Leon, Laguindingan Terminal Manager Jose Budiongan, CDO City Administrator Roy Raagas and COHARA’s Nelia Lee were on hand for the ribbon cutting:
You can book your Tigerair flights via the Cebu Pacific Air official website. You’ll find blue airplane indicators – that means those flights will be handled by Tigerair.
The launch of the Tigerair CDO to Manila flight makes it the 18th flight out of Laguindingan. Tigerair Philippines operates roughly 220 weekly flights to Hong Kong, Bacolod, CDO, Cebu, Iloilo, Kalibo, Manila, Tacloban and Puerto Princesa.
