Media partners are Business Week Mindanao, CDO Bloggers, KBP Cagayan de Oro Chapter and CDODev.com.

To properly evaluate TravelX in its right context, a look back at recent developments at the Laguindingan Airport in Misamis Oriental is in order.

Last October 20, 2017, top executives of the country’s leading airline and chief executives of the government from the national, regional and local levels launched Laguindingan Airport (IATA: CGY) as the 7th Regional Hub of Cebu Pacific Air (PSE: CEB).

This was followed barely a month later by the Philippine Airlines (PAL) launch of direct flights from CGY to Clark Freeport, bringing to ten the destinations served with direct flights from Laguindingan.

Cebu Pacific and its affiliate Cebgo have nine direct connections to and from Cagayan. Manila, Bacolod, Davao, Zamboanga, Cebu, Iloilo, Tagbilaran, and starting today, Caticlan and Dumaguete, while PAL served Clark (Angeles), Cebu, Davao, and Manila.

“Laguindingan is the gateway to Northern Mindanao. When we started in 1996, actually Cagayan de Oro was our 4th destination, and today it’s still our 4th largest destination,” said Lance Gokongwei, CEB President and Chief Executive Officer during the Oct. 20 launch. “We now have 146 weekly flights out of Laguindingan to nine destinations in the Philippines and we want to promote tourism and business in a region that deserves more attention and access.”

“That’s our mission, to create access for all Filipinos not only to Metro Manila but to all other cities. With the help of Cebu Pacific, many destinations are being discovered and we hope such destinations in Northern Mindanao will be discovered and we’ll do our own little part of make that possible,” he added.

In for the Long Term

“It’s actually quite timely if we need to develop the hub and location-wise, geographically it’s also a good central location to connect to the other islands in the Visayas and Mindanao,” said Candice Iyog, CEB Vice President, Marketing, and Distribution, on the sidelines of the event.

“When we enter a market the intention is always to do long-term. Because of the time, the effort to actually set up a hub operationally, resource-wise, is the same whether it’s a short-term or a long-term. So when we come into a market, it’s really with the full intention of developing it and growing it,” she added.

Public-Private Partnership

“We always view the government as our partners. We work closely with the Dept. of Transportation (DOTr) and its associated agencies, the Civil Aeronautics Board (CAB) in making sure that all processes and infrastructure are in place, and we work closely with the Department of Tourism (DOT) in promoting destinations in our place,” Gokongwei noted.

“We are also very supportive of the government’s moves to really Build, Build, Build … because that’s what we really need, more infrastructure if the aviation industry’s gonna grow, certainly we need more and better airports,” he added.

Engr. Jose G. Budiongan, airport/area manager for CAAP Area X, said Laguindingan airport is now gearing up for the increased passenger traffic by opening another gate in addition to the existing two. An additional passenger lounge capable of seating 100 additional departing passengers is also in the works.

International flights

Asked about the proximity of international flights landing in Laguindingan Airport, Gokongwei replied: “I think international flights are something we should look at in the next two years because generally if a hub already has many domestic connections, that means there’s enough support as possibly an international destination, and that’s something we’ll seriously consider.”

“We are considering opening flights to the Brunei Darussalam-Indonesia-Malaysia-Philippines East ASEAN Growth Area (BIMP-Eaga) maybe in the future, as preparations improve for airports and all that, we will probably start flights of our international airports from Davao and Cagayan de Oro and the like from Mindanao to the Indonesian islands, like Sandakan, like Malaysia,” he added.

Cebu Pacific Mission

In his brief talk during the launching program, Gokongwei disclosed how a letter addressed to him epitomized the mission of Cebu Pacific to serve “EveryJuan,” the airline’s tagline.

“With this as a hub, a tourist from Boracay can now easily explore this region’s diverse natural attractions. Small businesses can flourish with additional cargo options, and seat sales enable families and couples to visit their loved ones more,” Gokongwei noted.

“What was originally the fourth destination of Cebu Pacific in 1996 is now a hub. It follows the path of Manila, Cebu, Iloilo, Davao, also as hubs,” he explained. “Today is a testament to our long-standing commitment to contribute to nation-building and make air travel more accessible to all Filipinos. We look forward to the effect our low fares and direct flights will have on Northern Mindanao.”
