Netizens pick Batanes as the next Cebu Pacific destination - Cebu Pacific to launch Batanes route on March 25

Batanes— with its dramatic scenery, crashing waves and idyllic landscape—is on most travelers’ bucket lists. It’s also the newest Cebu Pacific destination! 

Cebu Pacific will start flying between Manila and Basco, Batanes on March 25, 2018—just in time for the summer travel season.

One of the most scenic spots in Batanes, Chamantad Cove and Tiñan Viewpoint leaves tourists in awe of its stunning view of the ocean from up the hills. 



Batanes emerged as the most requested destination among netizens on social media in a crowdsourcing campaign Cebu Pacific launched last year, aside from being ready for commercial aviation and tourism. Using the hashtag #CEBFlyMeTo, netizens were asked which destinations in the Philippines they would want Cebu Pacific to fly next. Other popular choices among netizens included Daet (Camarines Norte), Mati (Davao Oriental), Bantayan Island (Cebu), San Vicente (Palawan) and Siquijor. All top picks were then assessed in terms of readiness for commercial flights, with criteria that included airport infrastructure, safety and security processes, and passenger facilities.

With Cebu Pacific’s new flights to Batanes, tourists can now enjoy the breathtaking scene of the province’s white sands and clear blue waters. 

“Our new flight to Basco is in keeping with our commitment to connect more of the Philippines and make air travel safe, affordable, reliable, and fun-filled for everyjuan. What makes this route more special is that netizens were actively engaged in the selection of our new destination—our customers were part of the process,” said Alexander Lao, Cebgo President and CEO.


Cebu Pacific, through subsidiary Cebgo, will fly once daily between Manila and Basco, Batanes beginning March 25 until October 27, 2018. The flight departs from the NAIA Terminal 4 in Manila at 6:20am, with the return trip from Basco, Batanes departing at 9:15am.
