Pagadian of Zamboanga del Sur is the latest new addition to Cebu Pacific‘s domestic direct flights.
Started just last April 27, tourists and locals can now enjoy easy access to the prime gateway of Zamboanga del Sur province via CEB’s low-fare flights from Cebu to Pagadian.
With major festivities Pasalamat Festival and the Megayon Festival, Pagadian City is the capital of Zamboanga del Sur province in western Mindanao.
“We are proud to include Pagadian to our extensive domestic network, now composed of 33 domestic and 14 international destinations,” said Candice Iyog, CEB vice president for marketing and distribution.
“Travelers from Cebu and Manila can catch the marvels of uniquely Pagadianon creations like the famous inclined tricycle. Riding this local tricycle—which has a chassis that is literally inclined—will be the perfect way to traverse the mountainside terrains of the province,” she adds.
Moreover, the Manila-Pagadian route will commence on June 9, 2010 which start at the lowest possible year-round ‘Go Lite’ fare of P1,088. The Pagadian route also offers direct connection to the city and surrounding areas of Ozamiz, Iligan and Zamboanga del Norte.

In Ozamiz, discover tourist attraction-turned pilgrimage destination Misamis Occidental Aquamarine Park and Bukagan Hill.
In Iligan, the Maria Cristina waterfalls is the main source of hydroelectric energy while the historic Dapitan City in Zamboanga del Norte is also sought after.

I’ve recently visited Davao, with General Santos as the next pick. Perhaps Sago could add Pagadian City very soon.
