“Siargao is a success story for the airline, and a true example of how inter-island accessibility can lead to development, tourism and business opportunities. CEB first launched flights to Siargao back in 2009. In a span of eight years, it has increased flight frequencies from only twice weekly to as much as fourteen times weekly today,” said Alexander Lao, President and CEO for Cebgo.

“With these additional frequencies, not only do we boost traffic to Siargao from Cebu, but we are also able to strengthen Cebu as a hub, while giving everyJuan more chances to explore one of the most beautiful islands in the Philippines,” Lao added.


Starting March 15 and 16, 2017, Two (2) new routes will be added to Cebu Pacific's CebGo (CEB). CEB will be flying four times weekly (Monday, Wednesday, Friday and Sunday) between Cagayan de Oro and Tagbilaran; and three times weekly (Tuesday, Thursday and Saturday) between Cagayan de Oro and Bacolod, respectively. Both new routes will be using the new ATR 72-600 aircraft that is expected to arrive in early March. CEB’s lowest all-in year-round fare, one-way from Cagayan de Oro to Tagbilaran is Php1,235, while Cagayan de Oro to Bacolod is at Php1,806.

“Cebu Pacific stays committed in providing the best connectivity options for our valued passengers at the lowest fare available in the market. These new routes will open great opportunities for everyjuan, both business and leisure travelers alike, enabling them to visit the Visayas region more conveniently. At the same time, passengers from Tagbilaran and Bacolod will now be able to explore Mindanao without the hassle, through the gateway that is Cagayan de Oro,” says Alexander Lao, President and CEO of Cebgo.

“Trust that we will remain devoted to exploring more routes to cater to more of our valued guests, and also to beef up economic, trade, and tourism in the destinations we operate in,” adds Lao.

Be Well by taking Sodium Ascorbate Bewell-C

After the storm that recently brought heavy damage to properties and challenged the health of Cagayan De Oro residents, our kababayan’s immune system is just starting to recuperate and get back to normal. One sure way to speed up its recovery is to take optimum levels of Vitamin C.

But did you know, that when taking Vitamin C, we have to be careful of several factors such as the type and quality of Vitamin C because not all vitamin C are the same!

The most common type of Vitamin C is ascorbic acid. This type of vitamin C has been by far, the cheapest form of Vitamin C, but did you know that when taken at higher quantities, ascorbic acid is not exempted from harmful side effects. Diarrhea, Nausea, Stomach Cramps, Headache, Hyperacidity, Hot flushes and Heartburn are just some of the symptoms of taking too much ascorbic acid.

In the recent decade, Sodium Ascorbate has given the public the safest and most effective type of vitamin C. Bewell-C (Sodium Ascorbate)is a non-acidicVitamin C supplement that is rapidly gaining popularity among the public as a high quality and effective brand. Bewell-C is the next generation vitamin C that provides all the benefits of vitamin C without the risk of hyperacidity.

Doctors recommend that we take 2 capsules per day of Bewell-C. Some people requires higher dose per day if they are experiencing the following:

People suffering from Flu virus are recommended to take 6 capsules of Bewell-C per day and 4 capsules while recovering from flu. Whereas, those who are suffering from colds and cough are recommended to take at least 6 capsules until they have recovered.

Research study also pointed out that most healthy adults get a cold two or three times a year and taking large doses of Vitamin Cdaily shortens the duration of colds.

Smokers and Alcohol Drinkers
Alcohol, Nicotine and other substance in cigarette causes cell damage and drains vitamins and nutrition from your body.

Smokers and those who often drink alcohol experience lower immune system and are susceptible to various diseases thus, they are required to take at least 4 capsules of Bewell-C to help maintain their health.

People who underwent surgery are recommended to take high doses of Vitamin C as much as 6capsules Bewell-C daily to hasten wound healing. Vitamin C is essential in the formation of new connective tissue in healing wound.

For those who need both Vitamin C and Calcium,Bewell-C plus calcium is also available in the market.Just like Bewell-C, this product also uses non-acidic vitamin C paired with organic calcium fortified with Vitamin D for stronger bones and teeth.

Bewell-C and Bewell-C Plus Calcium is available in all leading drugstores nationwide and on Online Shopping: For more updates, follow their FB:

Apple Tree Resort and Hotel's 3rd Christmas Tree Lighting Ceremony

Apple Tree Resort and Hotel (ATRH), Misamis Oriental's and Metro CdeO's Premier Resort and Hotel, held its 3rd Christmas tree lighting ceremony last December 1st. The event started with a (catholic) Holy Mass then a VTR of their employees sharing their most memorable Christmas memory. Ms. Bjanesha Manigsaca Emphasis, ATRH General Manager shared thru her opening remarks the value of women not only during Christmas season but also in our lifetime. At the end of her speech, the ATRH Christmas tree was unveiled while selected employee render a dance 'salute' to women.

ATRH theme for this year's yuletide season is "empowering women" as they advocates the stop of violence on women and children. Their tree is composed of four clustered tree that resembles a skirt and on top of each tree is a lighted mannequin covered in lace.

For me, their tree tell me that the women is the star not only for this yuletide season but also in our life time. Women are our guiding light in our darkness (night). I also reflected the role of women in my life: my mom who raised me into a man i am today; my sisters that taught me to understand and respect other women, my aunts who taught me how to become a family man, and of course my wife who help me in every step in our married life. They really deserve a "salute".

Cebu Pacific Received its First ATR 72-600 High Capacity Aircraft

The Philippines’ leading carrier, Cebu Pacific Air (PSE: CEB), yesterday took delivery of the very first ATR 72-600 High Capacity aircraft at an event in Toulouse, France. The delivery is the first of a US$673-million order of 16 aircraft that was placed at the 2015 Paris Airshow, which also includes an option to acquire additional ten more planes.

Photo Taken from Cebu Pacific Air's Official Facebook Page

The new ATR 72-600 which will be operated by Cebgo, the wholly owned subsidiary of CEB, features advanced avionics, enhanced performance in hot and high environments and increased cabin space along with additional seating capacity. The additional seating capacity will help further lower unit seat costs enabling CEB to pass on the benefits through lower fares to its customers.

CEB will progressively replace its current fleet of eight ATR 72-500s – which are configured with 72 seats – with the fleet of 16 new ATR 72-600s, with 78 seats. Deliveries of the ATR 72-600s will run until 2020. The airline is modernizing its fleet with the most popular regional aircraft to substantially expand its route network and frequencies across the archipelago and continue to support the growing Philippine economy. In a particularly competitive environment, the new high capacity ATR72-600s will help the airline reduce its fleet’s fuel consumption and cost per seat while answering the growing demand for inter-island connectivity.

Commenting on this major delivery, Lance Gokongwei, President and CEO of Cebu Pacific Air declared: “We are honored to be the launch operator of the largest-capacity configuration of the ATR 72-600. These aircraft will enable us to provide the most modern standards of comfort and even more competitive fares to our guests, while expanding our inter-island network. The opening of new routes and destinations will help strengthen links between local communities and encourage more business and tourism opportunities. The Required Navigation Performance-Authorization Required (RNP AR) and Vertical Navigation (VNAV) capability of our new ATR 72-600 fleet will further increase airfield access, benefiting the economies of remote provinces, as well as facilitating more efficient air traffic management.”

Patrick de Castelbajac, Chief Executive Officer of ATR, commented: “The ATR 72-600 is particularly successful in South East Asia as it offers the optimal answer for regional travel, in terms of both operating costs and passenger experience. The new high capacity option is particularly adapted to the operational needs of a successful low-cost carrier in this part of the world. We look forward to see our first 78-seater fly with one of the fastest-growing carriers, Cebu Pacific. ”

ATR has some 380 aircraft operating in Asia-Pacific in the liveries of over 60 airlines. In recent years, Asia-Pacific has become the world region with the largest number of ATR aircraft in operation. ATR estimates demand for some 750 turboprops in this region within the next two decades.

CEB offers flights to 36 domestic and 30 international destinations, covering an extensive network that spans Asia, Australia, and the Middle East. Its 56-strong fleet is comprised of six Airbus A319, 36 Airbus A320, six Airbus A330, and eight ATR 72-500 aircraft. Between 2016 and 2021, CEB expects delivery of 32 Airbus A321neo, two Airbus A330, and 16 ATR 72-600 aircraft.
