Cebu Pacific starts flying from Clark to Busuanga and Boracay

May 16, 2017

The Philippines' leading airline, Cebu Pacific (PSE: CEB), through its wholly-owned subsidiary, Cebgo, started flying directly from its Clark hub to two of the world's best islands, Boracay and Palawan. Cebgo began flying daily to and from Caticlan, Boracay; and thrice weekly (Monday, Wednesday, and Friday) to and from Busuanga in Palawan on May 15, 2017.


The maiden flights were inaugurated by (L to R) Angeles City Councilor Joseph Ponce; Angeles City Vice Mayor Bryan Nepomuceno; Department of Tourism Assistant Secretary Daniel Mendoza; Clark International Airport Corporation President Alexander Cauguiran; CEB Vice President for Corporate Affairs JR Mantaring; and Pampanga provincial board members Fritzie Dizon, and Benjamin Jocson.

The Power of Local Media

The Philippines has one of the most vibrant media network in the world. The country has 82 provinces with hundreds of cities and thousands of municipalities. With an average of three major local newspapers in each city, any adviser will be challenged with the task of selecting the right medium in targeting their clients.

The Public Relations scene is even more complex – with a web of hundred of editors and thousands of columnists and writers. One must create stories that suit the different local tastes and one that target to a much more specific readership, not mentioning the different dialects.
