Tigerair Philippines is now Cebgo
Tigerair Philippines, the wholly owned subsidiary of Cebu Pacific Air, now operates as Cebgo. Its new logo utilizes CEB colors, to further reflect the airline’s relationship with its parent company.
“The new Cebgo brand clearly identifies us as part of the CEB group, and streamlines our operations further. Cebgo will continue to leverage on CEB’s distribution channels and network, and work together to serve more guests,” said Michael Ivan Shau, Cebgo President and CEO.
Starting this May, Cebgo crew has been conducting Fun Games onboard to unify the CEB group flight experience. Flight and ground crew will don Cebgo uniforms in a few months’ time.
Cebgo continues to operate flights from Ninoy Aquino International Airport Terminal 4 and Clark International Airport. It flies to 16 destinations: Bacolod, Butuan, Cagayan de Oro, Clark, Cebu, Davao, General Santos, Iloilo, Kalibo, Legazpi, Manila, Roxas, Puerto Princesa, Tacloban, Tagbilaran, and Hong Kong.
Since CEB’s acquisition of Cebgo last March 2014, CEB managed to quickly turn around its wholly owned subsidiary, narrowing its financial losses significantly. Cebgo has since then launched 10 new routes, offering more options for the traveling public.
In 2014, Cebgo carried 1.3 million domestic passengers, compared to 970,000 in 2013.
CEB’s 55-strong fleet is comprised of 10 Airbus A319, 31 Airbus A320, 6 Airbus A330 and 8 ATR 72-500 aircraft. It is one of the most modern aircraft fleets in the world. Between 2015 and 2021, CEB will take delivery of 7 more brand-new Airbus A320 and 30 Airbus A321neo aircraft.
Cebu Air Inc. is the largest carrier in the Philippine air transportation industry, offering its low-cost services to more destinations and routes with higher flight frequency within the Philippines than any other airline.
CEB’s network is made wider with Cebgo, its wholly owned subsidiary, creating the largest low-cost network to and from the Philippines.
