Air Asia Now Flies From CDO to Iloilo City 3 Times a Week

Air Asia Flight CDO to Iloilo
It has been an awesome opportunity for the CDO Today team to be part of the inaugural flight of the CDO-Iloilo route of Air Asia Philippines.

CDO Bloggers - Photo by Phebie Anne Normandia
Last October 30, 2018, we witnessed the first as Air Asia brought the CDO Today team to the City of Love - Iloilo City. It was our first time in Iloilo City and we were so amazed how the City of Love was well planned. With wide roads around the city, we were so glad that there were no traffic jams around the city. We can't help but wished for our beloved CDO to have the same traffic scheme in Iloilo City.

Now anyone can fly with cheap Iloilo tickets from AirAsia. So, it is now easy for all Cagay-anons to explore Iloilo and discover this great city of Western Visayas.

These are the schedule flight of Air Asia flying from CDO to other destinations:

AirAsia Philippines CEO Captain Dexter Comendador said, “AirAsia is committed to connect communities in the Philippines. Our newest routes connecting Northern Mindanao to Cebu and Iloilo in Visayas and to Manila and Clark in Luzon will provide the much-needed domestic connections as there are definitely great tourism and business potentials here. Let's paint Cagayan de Oro City skies red and make air travel more affordable, convenient and reliable.”

AirAsia’s Cagayan de Oro - Manila route will operate twice daily, Cagayan de Oro - Cebu route with flights daily while Cagayan de Oro – Iloilo three times weekly and  Cagayan de Oro - Clark at four times weekly.

Here are some of the places that we visited in Iloilo:

Molo Church
Molo Mansion
Casa de Emperador at Festive Walk Mall by Megaworld Corporation
Cabugao Gamay in Gigantes Island
Provincial Capitol of Iloilo
