"Tigerair Philippines, through its network made wider with Cebu Pacific, remains committed to providing the traveling public more travel options and low fares. The launch of direct flights to Cagayan de Oro increases accessibility to Northern Mindanao," de Leon said.

Flights to Cagayan de Oro will now increase to 18 daily flights from 17 daily flights. However, Laguindingan Airport's Manager, Jose Budiongan, hopes that with Tigerair's flight, it does add to pursuing the Civil Aviation Authority of the Philippines vision: "The future is in the skies. Fly high, Laguindingan Airport."

Cagayan de Oro is a key government, commercial and tourism hub in the region. It is the gateway to eco-adventure attractions such as white water rafting and canopy walks, and is a rapidly developing city with myriad shopping and hotel options.

With Tigerair Philippines' newly launched destination, the airline now operates approximately 220 weekly flights to one international and eight domestic destinations: Hong Kong, Bacolod, Cagayan de Oro, Cebu, Iloilo, Kalibo, Manila, Puerto Princesa and Tacloban. It operates a fleet of four Airbus A320 aircraft from Cebu Pacific.
