BUDGET Carrier Cebu Pacific announced on Thursday that it will increase flights to Siargao, Boracay and Bohol next month, as well as resume several international flights beginning Sept. 30.
“We believe that reopening domestic travel and the promotion of responsible travel is critical to rebuilding the trust and travel confidence in the industry,” Candice A. Iyog, vice-president for marketing and customer experience at Cebu Pacific said at a virtual briefing.

The airline will also increase flight frequencies to Boracay from four to five times daily in the coming month.
In the same month, Bohol flights will be increased from nine to 10 times weekly.
