Wednesday, July 16, 2014
TIGERAIR Philippines, through its network Cebu Pacific Air, launched its Manila-Cagayan de Oro flights in Laguindingan Airport, Tuesday.
Tigerair Philippines’ chief legal officer and head of corporate affairs lawyer Leilani de Leon welcomed the guests, and expressed her gratitude on behalf of Tigerair. She also announced that soon enough, they will add a Cebu-Cagayan de Oro flight.
With as much enthusiasm as de Leon, president of Hotel, Resorts and Restaurant Association of Cagayan de Oro Nelia Lee said with Tigerair’s launching, from its 17 flights a day, Laguindingan Airport now has 18 flights coming in and out of Misamis Oriental daily.
Laguindingan Airport Authority terminal manager Jose Budiongan hopes that with Tigerair’s flight, it does add to pursuing the Civil Aviation Authority of the Philippines (CAAP) vision: “The future is in the skies. Fly high, Laguindingan Airport.”
Misamis Oriental governor Bambi Emano also graced the event and talked on how Tigerair’s coming in becomes an advantage for Misamis Oriental since the province has been exerting so much effort to promote its tourism. He also offers assistance to support and help Tigerair in any way he can since a Tigerair and MisOr partnership will boost the province’s tourism campaign.
Tigerair also awarded a round trip ticket to the first passenger who checked in yesterday.
Atty. de Leon gave Mr. Kenneth Osip his reward near the end of the program.
The short launch ended with the ribbon cutting led by Emano and de Leon.
Tigerair Philippines currently holds a P1 seat sale on all its domestic destinations from July 15 to 17, 2014, or until seats last, for travel from January 1 to March 31, 2015.
Even without the promo, those who wish to travel to and from Cagayan de Oro before or after the first quarter of 2015 can book flights with Tigerair’s year-round fares starting at P1,518 only. (Myles Cantal Albasin/UP Cebu Mass Comm Intern)
