Philippine low-cost carrier Cebu Pacific plans to launch new services from Iloilo, its fourth hub, in November.

Starting on 8 November, the carrier will launch twice-weekly Iloilo-Hong Kong and four times-weekly Iloilo-General Santos services. It will also increase its six times-daily Iloilo-Manila service to seven times daily.

The airline will also launch thrice-weekly Iloilo-Singapore, Iloilo-Puerto Princesa and Cagayan de Oro-Bacolod services each on 9 November.

"We are proud to launch Iloilo as our 4th hub, since these new routes will greatly contribute to the tourism and trade in Western Visayas [region]... These new routes are in time for the delivery of three more brand-new Airbus A320 aircraft in the second half of 2012," says Cebu Pacific's vice president for marketing and distribution Candice Iyog.

Schedules in Innovata show Cebu Pacific will be the only operator on the Iloilo to Hong Kong and Singapore routes.
