Davao to Cagayan de Oro direct flights launched

Well, after years of waiting for another airline to launch Davao to Cagayan de Oro, Cagayan de Oro to Davao direct flights (the last airline that offered this was Mindanao Air – if memory serves me right – I was able to fly twice), the wait is finally over. Cebu Pacific Airlines has launched a direct thrice-weekly service from Davao to Cagayan de Oro starting May 14, 2009. And here’s pretty tempting news for those who want to try this new route — Cebu Pacific is introducing this Davao City to Cagayan de Oro City, Cagayan de Oro City to Davao City route with a one-way ‘Go Lite’ promo fare of P499 all-in.

The seat sale will run from today to April 30, 2009 and is valid for travel from June 1 to August 31, 2009. Promo fare is non-refundable.

The flight departs from Davao every Tuesday, Thursday, and Saturday at 6:00pm and arrives in Cagayan de Oro at 6:50pm. The return flight leaves Cagayan de Oro at 7:10pm and lands in Davao at 8:00pm.


I found something funny in Cebu Pacific Airline’s press release about this new route, however. According to the statement of Cebu Pac VP for Marketing and Distribution Candice Iyog, the flight will accordingly “cut to an hour” the “usual 10-hour road trip.”

Was Miss Iyog misinformed or has she even tried traveling the CDO-Davao route via land trip? Why, the last time I did, it only took us 6 hours! And that was even via public transportation. If via a private vehicle, it may only have taken us 4-5 hours. Tsk tsk.

Anyways, I guess she had to say what she had to say.

After the seat sale, the lowest year-round ‘Go Lite’ fare from Davao to Cagayan de Oro starts from P688 all-in.

    Not a bad deal at all if “all-in” means including taxes. I don’t expect to need to go to CDO very often, but it’s nice to have options.

    So the CDO airport runway have nite lights now?

  3. @Randy – that’s true. Options are always good.

    @chavsraul – I suppose so or else they’d have a difficult time since the flights are in the evenings

    hey, bakit puro alanganin ang flights? malaking market for Cebu Pacificang mga students ng State U ng iligan, so marami talagang babyahe sa friday night and saturday evening para sa ka-kanilang Masters and Doctorates… h

  5. @jga-p – I reckon Cebu Pacific conducted a feasibility study before they launched these flights. Also, siguro they want to schedule their planes
