“Movement of goods between these islands will also be facilitated,” Lao said.

Cebu Pacific serves the Laguindingan-Tagbilaran route four times weekly (Monday, Wednesday, Friday and Sunday) and the Laguindingan-Bacolod route thrice a week (Tuesdays, Thursdays and Saturdays).

The airline said it would be using ATR aircraft for both routes. —JIGGER JERUSALEM
